  • No info regarding the G8X ?
  • Okay, someone from LG gave me the info : end of Q1.
  • When do you reckon I'd get the update for my G8 in the states (T-mobile)?
  • Any love for the G7?
  • 2yr old flagship LG V30+ (sprint), at this very moment I have Android 8.0.0 Probably going to be my last LG phone for a while. Which sucks but wtf..
  • Did you try to upgrade with LG Bridge or manually with a firmware and LG UP ?
  • I know someone who actually saw one of the nearly finished prototype of GO and V60 models.
    I can report for sure they're both LG Dual Screen compatible, under Android 10 and one of them has a curved OLED screen (V60).
    In term of design, similar to GiX for the front (apart from the curved screen for the V60) and some minor changes for the back.
