AT&T variants of the LG V40 ThinQ are receiving the Android 10 update ahead of schedule. It appears to be a staged rollout as the software has landed on only a handful of devices.

Much like its smartphone division, LG's software updates have been a bit of a mess. Many of the builds often arrive late or are riddled with bugs. Several devices have to wait for extended periods before they can get an update, and an unfortunate few don't even get one. LG's nearly two-year-old flagship -the LG V40 ThinQ-is now receiving its Android 10 update on AT&T.

It is a pleasant surprise, as the Android 10 update for the LG V40 ThinQ is scheduled for a Q3 2020 release. Only a handful of users have received the update, though. We can expect to see a wider rollout commence in the coming days. The update is only available for AT&T branded versions of the phone. Let's hope other carriers follow suit sooner rather than later.

Apart from the standard Android 10 features such as a system-wide dark mode, Digital Wellbeing stats, and Smart Reply, there aren't any OEM-specific changes. The lack of a changelog on AT&T's website indicates that the carrier may have jumped the gun on it. Thankfully, the few people who did get the update state that it is free from bugs. Android 10 marks the last major software upgrade for the LG V40 ThinQ, as the phone launched with Android 8.0 Oreo on board.
