While LG has always had its dedicated fanbase, they have also been overshadowed by smartphone giants like Samsung and Apple. So, while LG does make great smartphones, it does not sell a lot of them. But that has not stopped LG from trying, and their 2018 flagship was the LG G7 ThinQ. That name is certainly a mouthful.
It has a glass and metal design with a 6.7-inch IPS LCD display. The screen has a respectable resolution of 1440 x 3120 and is HDR 10+ certified, making this device great for content consumption. It runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with up to 6GB of RAM and u to 128GB of fast UFS 2.1 storage. It has a dual-camera setup at the back with a 16MP main shooter and 16MP ultrawide. Out of the box, it came with Android 8.0 Oreo.
While LG phones have great hardware, their software is more of a mixed bag. While LG has reduced the bloatware resent in its devices and cleaned up its UI, it still has a long way to go. Users were also not happy that in 2018, it launched with Android 8.0, instead of the latest Android 8.1. But LG did promise upgrade support up to Android 10.
LG had started beta testing Android 10 for G7 devices back in May. Korean G7 units received the update in the same month. And looks like LG is on track to bring the update to Europe. Unlocked LG G7 devices in the UK have started receiving the Android 10 update. According to a screenshot posted by Reddit user u/RicePudding3, the update weighs around 1.7 GB and brings in the latest security patch. We hope that now European users can finally get to experience all the new features of Android 10.
