LG started rolling out the Android 10 update for its LG G8 ThinQ variant for both Sprint and Verizon users in the U.S. To recall, back in November 2019, the company started to roll out the Android 10 update for G8 ThinQ mobile in South Korea.
Earlier, Droid-Life spotted that the Verizon users are getting the update and the same changes seen on the beta and the public release. The changes include support for system-wide dark mode, various UI changes, new camera features, and many more.
The update of the Verizon version for LG G8 ThinQ is G820UM20a. And it also includes the December 2019 Android security patch level. But surprisingly, the update tracker of Verizon has not been revised yet.
Along with the Android 10 update, there are some more additional goodies by LG. That includes the introduction of night mode, which changes the app screens to a dark theme. You can also view the screens without any glare, even in the dark.
When you want to share a file through Messaging from other apps like Gallery, you can select a present conversation to share instead of entering the recipient every time.
The search screen of the Gallery shows search suggestions and categories like where, when, and how the videos and photos are taken on your phone.
Notably, Verizon is not the first carrier to release the update. As per the reports of some users on Reddit, Sprint pushed the Android 10 update, a week ago. The build number of the Sprint variant seems to be v20d.
The rollouts are likely to be over the air, and you will receive in a staged manner. You can always try to check for the update through the Settings menu on your phone. Besides, you can also download it manually.
