New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on June 03, 2020) follows:
Samsung has changed the name of its custom Android skin multiple times just so as to get a catchy title, the latest being One UI. However, LG has little to no time for that, instead of sticking with LG UX for its in-house Android skin.
The latest that tags along the update to Android 10 operating system are LG UX 9.0. The Korean company could have even gone with LG UX 10.0 to match Google’s OS numbering but decided to stick with 9.0, which could mistakenly be associated with Android 9 Pie.
Names aside, the stable LG Android 10 update has been rolling out for a while now. It started in late 2019 and is still ongoing, with a bunch of handsets still expecting the OS to arrive in the coming weeks or probably months.
In this article, we have compiled a list of LG smartphones that have been upgraded to the stable Android 10 update so far. The list will be updated whenever a new device joins the party.

Q3 2020 was supposed to welcome the Android 10 update on the G7 ThinQ, G8S ThinQ, and V40 ThinQ. So far, only the G8S ThinQ has yet to get the OS.
Given that the likes of LG K50S, LG K40S, LG K50, and LG Q60 were expected to get the OS in Q4, we won’t be surprised if the rollout begins in Q3.
