LG starts rolling out Android 11 update for LG G8X ThinQ

After shutting down the smartphone manufacturing, LG shared a list of phones which are going to receive the Android 11 and other updates. LG G8X ThinQ is also slated to get an Android 11 update. And as promised, LG has started rolling out the Android 11 update for LG G8X ThinQ. Obviously, the update is rolling out with a flurry of new features and improvements. Here you can check more info about LG G8X ThinQ Android 11 update.

LG kicks off the big update with the V30a-EEA-XX software version. It is the second major OS upgrade for the LG G8X. The smartphone was announced back in 2019 with Android Pie 9.0, later it received Android 10 OS over-the-air, now it’s time for the much-awaited Android 11 update. As obvious, this build weighs more than usual OTA patches, it measures around 2.2GB in size for download.

And the best thing is, the update is already available to a bunch of users across the globe. A Reddit user (Space_Crystal and 1uk4s) already got their hands-on with the Android 11 update on LG G8 (LM-G850EMW). The update is available in the Netherlands, Brazil, Germany, also in other parts of Europe. We can expect it will be available to everyone within the next few days or weeks in worst case scenario. The update knocks up with the latest monthly security patch along with the other features.

Talking about the new features, then as per the Reddit user (just_BB_), the LG G8X Android 11 update comes with a new notification UI, overhauled quick settings panel, new power menu, new icons in the gallery app, accent colors, ability to change fingerprint animation, and more. Obviously, you can also access the basic features of Android 11 such as Chat Bubbles, change in Notification panel & volume controls, and more.

LG G8X ThinQ Android 11 Update

The wait is finally over, LG G8X users can now upgrade their smartphone to the Android 11 update. For the time being, the update is in a rolling phase and will reach every device in coming days. If you’re using the G8X ThinQ then you’ll get the OTA notification or you can also check the system updates manually, as there are sometimes when OTA notification does not arrive. Check the new updates by heading over to the Settings app > System > Software Update, if the update is available then tap on Download and Install.

If the update is not available on your unit, then you can wait for a few days, staged rollouts take some time to reach every smartphone.

Before updating your smartphone, make sure to take a backup of important data. Also, make sure to charge your smartphone to at least 30%.
