This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on August 21, 2020) follows:

The LG V40 ThinQ released back in 2018 with Android 8.1 Oreo pre-installed and has since then picked up the update in the U.S. on carriers such as AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. The Android 10 update for the LG V40 ThinQ brings along a host of new features and improvements with the company’s custom LG UX 9.0 skin.

Unfortunately, this new software version did not roll out in all regions that the device is sold in. Therefore, users in Europe have been waiting for several months now to get the Android 10 update on their device. Well, it finally seems that the wait is now over.

This is because some users are beginning to receive an OTA update which brings Android 10 along with LG UX 9.0 to the LG V40 ThinQ. The new update is rolling out with software version V30b and also brings the July 2020 security patch to the device.


An LG V40 ThinQ user on Reddit has shared a screenshot of the arrival of the new update. We’ve added the image for your reference below:


This update is rolling out to users in Greece, however, another Redditor on the same thread has confirmed that the update is also rolling out in the Netherlands. Thus, it’s safe to assume that the update should soon be available in all regions across Europe where the device is sold.

Previously, we had shared a workaround to install the Android 10 update on the LG V40 ThinQ since many users were tired of waiting for the update to roll out for their model. But now that the update has made its way to units in Europe, many users can install the correct firmware that’s meant for their device itself.

The company has released the Android 10 update for just about every eligible device from its portfolio.
