The LG G7 ThinQ is spotted running Android 10 on Geekbench
Many Android OEMs are getting better and better about updating their slightly older premium devices these days. Notable examples include OnePlus, Xiaomi and Samsung - but not LG. Unfortunately for this company's mobile consumers, it is more than a little sluggish in updating its G7 ThinQ model to Android 10, whereas some of its fellow Snapdragon 845-powered phones find themselves comfortably ensconced with this OS version.
On the other hand, the OEM has reportedly opened a beta program of sorts for the same in which a limited pool of users test its take on the major software upgrade. Should a number of new Geekbench 5 listings be believed, they have also been tested on this platform.
These database entries are indeed ostensibly for the G7 ThinQ, which call the phone by its product name as well as its model number. Both examples clearly list Android 10 as the OS, and exhibit scores of around 500 in single-core terms and 2027 in the same for multi-core performance.
These results may seem a little uninspiring, especially when compared to those for new phones such as the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro running the same OS. However, and probably more importantly, they are seen to outdo other G7 ThinQs running Android 9.0 (Pie) on the same benchmark. Therefore, these indications could give those who still own this phone increased hope that their purchases are not yet at the end of their lives.
