LG has a hard-earned reputation for consistently providing some of the worst software update deliveries in the world. Over the past few years, it feels like that particular issue has only grown worse, with the company's supposed Software Update Center—created to improve software support—doing nothing to improve matters. The South Korean company looks to be set to change opinions with its Android 10 rollout, however.
According to an official press release by the company, it will start sending out the Android 10 OTA to users of the G8 ThinQ and V50 ThinQ. That will, of course, just be a beta under the LG OS Preview Program. (buy G8 ThinQ now at Amazon)
At the moment, only a select few devices—from OnePlus, Essential, Nokia, and Huawei—have received stable Android 10 updates. Most others are still at the beta stage; Samsung, most notably. LG kicking off its beta program puts it ahead of several OEMs, and that's great to see.
The update will bring all the native Android 10 features and a UI redesign that was already tested on the LG V50S ThinQ a short while ago.
