Verizon LG V50 ThinQ 5G & LG V40 ThinQ Android 10 update seems distant as March security patch rolls out for both

One of the major US networks, Verizon has pushed the March 2020 security update for the LG V50 ThinQ 5G and LG V40 ThinQ smartphones.

Notably, the Android 10 update has already gone live for the Sprint variant of the LG V50 ThinQ 5G first, following which the European and EE carrier network in the UK picked up the update for the device.

Though the Android 10 kernel source code went live for the Verizon LG V50 ThinQ 5G on the LG OpenSource Code Distribution website last month, the update is yet to arrive on the LG V50 ThinQ 5G units.
