LG V50 ThinQ Android 11 update is finally available!

Just a few days ago, LG kicked-off the major Android 11 update for the LG G8X ThinQ. The company also promised an update for a few more phones. The list has a couple of famous LG G-series and V-series phones. Now company’s V-series smartphone, LG V50 ThinQ has started receiving the Android 11 update with a flurry of new aesthetics and tweaks. Read along to know more about the LG V50 ThinQ Android 11 update.

LG is seeding its newest software update on V50 ThinQ (LM-V500EM) with V30a-LAO-COM build number. At the time of writing this article, the update is available in Europe (Spain) and Korea. It is a big update and requires a big chunk of data for downloading, so I suggest connecting your smartphone to Wi-Fi connection for faster downloading. Reddit users (Teovipvt99 and lpiero) already got their hands-on with the Android 11 update. We can expect a wider rollout in the coming days.

LG V50 ThinQ was announced in 2019 with Android Pie 9.0 OS, last year, the device received its first big OS upgrade in the form of Android 10. Now the V50 ThinQ users can upgrade their device to the Android 11 OS.

As for now, the update changelog is not available to us. But we can expect V50 is going to get the same features we’ve seen in LG G8X ThinQ’s update. The G8X received an Android 11 update with features like new notification UI, overhauled quick settings panel, new power menu, new icons in the gallery app, accent colors, ability to change fingerprint animation, and a few more. Apart from these changes users can access the basic features of Android 11. Here’s the update screenshot shared by users on Reddit.

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.
