T-Mobile’s LG G Pad X 8.0 receiving security update


The LG G Pad X 8.0 may have been replaced by a newer model last year, but that doesn’t mean that it’s stopped getting attention from LG and T-Mobile.

T-Mobile is updating its LG G Pad X 8.0 with some new security patches. Specifically, the update to version V52120m brings the G Pad X 8.0 up to the February 1, 2018 Android security patch level.


It’s always good to see devices receiving new security patches, especially when older devices like the LG G Pad X 8.0 (which originally launched in mid-2016) continue to get updates well into their lives.

If you’ve got an LG G Pad X 8.0 and haven’t yet gotten this update, you can either wait for it to come to your tablet over the air or check for it by going into the Settings app and then selecting About phone > Update Center > System updates > CHECK FOR UPDATE.

Thanks, Casey!
