There are still some other LG V50 ThinQ models left that are yet to step up to Android 10. They will receive the upgrade around the end of June or early to mid-July. LG is currently working on the same by teaming up with Telestra.
After Korea, Sprint in US started rolling the Android 10 update with a build number of QKQ1.191021.002 and version number V450P20a. In fact, the update also tags along with the January 2020 security patch for the device as well.
Though LG has always been late in rolling out system updates, it has tried to improve its reputation by pushing the Android 10 update to its LG v50 ThinQ smartphone. The device is receiving the new Android OS update with version V500N19a. This is a beta version of the update which is only currently available in Korea. The V50 ThinQ is available via major carriers of the region, LG U+, SK, and SKT. So, users under these carriers can expect an airborne update carrying the Android 10 for LG V50 ThinQ.
We know how sluggy LG is when it comes to rolling out a software update. If you are one of those users who want an early experience of Android 10, then we have got the firmware file that you can flash on your device. To make things convenient for you, we have also got the OTA file which you can manually install and update your device to the Android 10.
If you are under the above-mentioned tele-carriers of Korea, then while automatic update reaches out to your device, you can search for it as well. Go to Settings > System Updates. If the update is already available you will be notified of the same. Then tap on Download to continue. Otherwise, tap Check for Updates. The device will search for the update.
If it shows up, download it using Wi-Fi. Make sure that your device has enough juice to withstand the update installation process. Otherwise, a low battery will stall the process.
