It has been a few months since LG began rolling out Android 10 to the G7 ThinQ in its home market of South Korea. In the three months since, LG has released the Velvet and announced plans to bring the UI from its latest smartphone to older devices like the V35 ThinQ and G7 ThinQ.
Now, the Android 10 upgrade for the G7 ThinQ has reached Europe. According to a thread on r/lgg7, the update has gone live in Belgium, Czechia, Germany and the UK. There is one report of a Canadian G7 ThinQ having received the upgrade too.
The update appears to be around 1.7 GB in size, although LG will probably vary the exact file size between regions. LG has rolled in the July set of Android security patches too.
LG's customisations are proving divisive, though. Some people are unhappy with changes that LG has made to the UI, while others have voiced their concerns about the removal of lock screen customisation options. Others seem just happy to have received Android 10 on their device, which is unsurprising considering LG's recent track record with delivering OS upgrades.
