LG also releases kernel sources for the LG Stylo 6 and LG V35/V50s ThinQ Android 10 builds
The original LG G8 ThinQ received its Android 10 update back in December 2019 while the “Dual Screen” compatible LG G8X ThinQ is scheduled to get its Android 10 update in Q2 2020. Now, owners of the Sprint LG G8X ThinQ will be glad to know that the device is now receiving its dose of Android 10 through an OTA update.
Carrier models usually face delayed updates compared to their unlocked counterparts, but the recent Android 10 update rollout for the AT&T LG V40 ThinQ and the current rollout for the Sprint G8X are indeed some noteworthy exceptions. Despite no official announcement, multiple users on our forums confirm that they have received the OTA. The new build brings the usual Android 10 goodies such as full-screen gestures and system-wide dark mode. We don’t know the Android security patch level at this time, though. LG has also published the Android 10 kernel source for this variant (LM-G850UM9) on their code repository which corresponds to software version G850U20a.
That’s not the end of the story, though, as the Korean OEM decided to release the Linux kernel source code for the upcoming Android 10 updates for two more devices – the LG V35 ThinQ (LM-V350N/NO/NOS) and the LG V50s ThinQ (LM-V510N/NX/NOX). Both of them should receive their taste of Android 10 pretty soon as per the latest update timeline published by LG.
Lastly, we have the kernel source code for the yet-to-be-announced LG Stylo 6. The upcoming mid-ranger made headlines in the last few days as well-known leaker Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) shared a render of this phone. Interestingly, the alleged model number of the LG Stylo 6 (LM-Q730xx) has a striking similarity with the Korean variant of the LG Q70 (LM-Q730N).
