T-Mobile LG V40 ThinQ and LG G7 ThinQ getting their Android 10 updates


As we near Wednesday, T-Mobile has started pushing out some big updates to help owners of recent LG flagships get over the hump.

The LG V40 ThinQ and LG G7 ThinQ have both started getting their Android 10 updates from T-Mobile. Neither update has been officially posted on T-Mo’s support pages, but several LG V40 and LG G7 owners on Reddit say that they’ve gotten Android 10 over the air today.

As you might expect from an Android 10 update, these LG V40 and LG G7 updates are both pretty large in size. Specifically, the LG V40’s update is 1.37GB and the LG G7’s is 1.41GB. So if you’ve got either phone, you may want to find a speedy Wi-Fi connection before starting your download.

Because T-Mobile hasn’t posted its changelog for either update yet, we don’t yet know all of the new features that are packed into these V40 and G7 updates. The update to Android 10 brings with it new features like navigation gestures, though, and folks that’ve already installed these updates say that LG UX 9.0 is included as well.

If you’ve got an LG V40 ThinQ or LG G7 ThinQ from T-Mobile, let us know when your Android 10 update arrives!

    Just got mine on the LG G7 which I now use on my Digits line. Nice that the software is as up to date as my LG V60.

      Got mine as well on my G7. Did you notice if you go the software update menu after where the LG software is located it now offers you LG’s voice assistant, however it’s in Korean only….

    My first android was an lg.
    I always recommended the brand in the beginning until it was obvious they dont support their old models. Bc of that I stay away from lg now.
    They make great phones but no support is a killer.
    I’m talking OS and security updates

    T-Mobile-branded LG V40 on AT&T prepaid SIM updated automatically to Android 10 over night of 20-21 May without my request or permission. Whatever. Two BIG complaints: 1) Can’t find any info anywhere on this phone how to dismiss screens since flicking to side no longer works. Good thing I’ve got a kid who rolled her eyes and said, “Flick UP!” 2) Lock screen includes a clock I can’t get rid of which won’t budge from its new location pegged about 13/17 of the way up the left side of the screen: lousy location and no way to change = p’d off user. One smaller complaint: process of deleting shortcuts from lock screen is needlessly complex.

    I’m sure my phone will run better now but niggling details have me wishing I could downgrade back to 9.
