LG seems to have slowly got into the groove, although very late, in rolling out Android 10 updates to its eligible devices. A few hours ago the Sprint variant of the LG G8X ThinQ has received the Android 10 (LG UX 9.0) update.

And if we have to go by recent reports, one more LG device, i.e. the LG V35 ThinQ might soon get ticked off from the list of devices that have received Android 10 update, because the Android 10 based kernel source code for the LG V35 ThinQ just went live.

Talk about the phone, the LG V35 was launched back in 2018 and it came with the-then top-of-the-line specs like SD 845, 6 GB of RAM, a 3,300 mAh battery, 6-inch P-OLED display and up to 128 GB of onboard storage.

Well, more importantly, it came with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box and was expecting its second and last Android OS update in the form of Android 10. And it seems like finally, the device will get the update in the near future.

We have reported earlier, as per the official Android 10 update roadmap shared by LG, the LG V35 ThinQ was expected to pick up the Android 10 (LG UX 9.0) update somewhere in Q2 of 2020. The last update the LG V35 received was the February 2020 security patch.


Fast forward to now, the Android 10 kernel source code is live for the LG V35 ThinQ models LMV350EAW, LMV350EM, LMV350EMW, LMV350ULA, and LMV350ULM, on the OpenSource Code Distribution website, hinting that the stable update might hit the devices soon.

Besides, the Android 10 based kernel source code for the LG V35 ThinQ going live also gives the thrid-party custom ROM developers a free hand to bring about their creativity and develop custom ROMs for the device based on Android 10 for interested users.

So, we can expect the stable Android 10 update to arrive on the LG V35 anytime from now on. We will keep you posted, once some new information comes across our table.
