LG's original 2019 flagship smartphone has started to see updates to Android 10. However, this is only reportedly applicable to units in the OEM's native South Korea at present. This upgrade also apparently comes with the November 2019 security patch.

LG has reportedly updated the G8 ThinQ to Android 10. This claim has been made by GSMArena, which has apparently been sent screenshots from this phone showing the corresponding software information. According to it, this new OS version for the G8 ThinQ is called G820N20c. However, further information on it, such as which upgrade-specific new features are included, are thin on the ground.

However, G8 ThinQ users worldwide hoping for this update may be disappointed. It may only apply to phones located in South Korea, as does this model's Android 10 beta, which has also recently been released. Nevertheless, should this report prove true, it may be a positive sign that software support at LG is getting better.

Then again, there is no word of similar treatment for this smartphone series' latest addition, the G8X ThinQ, which can be converted into something close to a foldable using its Dual Screen accessory. Nevertheless, those interested in the possibility of LG-flavored Android 10 this holiday may like to know that the G8 ThinQ has been reduced to only US$399 on Amazon.

However, this Black Friday/Cyber Monday price only applies to those units with Alexa apps built in. A completely stock, carrier-free 6/128GB variant of the same is $549, as opposed to its launch price of $899.
