LG G7 ThinQ (LMG710EM) spotted running stable Android 10 update, here's how you can get it

LG has already released the stable version of Android 10 to the LG G7 ThinQ. The OS first arrived in Korea a couple of days ago alongside the LG V50S ThinQ and just yesterday, T-Mobile started rolling it out in the U.S.

At this rate, it shouldn’t be long before your region gets the update too. Unfortunately, no one knows when exactly the OS will arrive for your specific unit.

But if you have the global LG G7 ThinQ, there is a way you can get the stable Android 10 update up and running on your handset.
