Android 10 is the tenth major release and the 17th version of the Android mobile operating system. It was released on September 3, 2019. Android is a mobile operating system based on a modified version of the Linux kernel and other open source software, designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android is developed by a consortium of developers known as the Open Handset Alliance, with the main contributor and commercial marketer being Google.
The V50 is the latest device from LG to be updated to Android 10. XDA Developers Max Winebach, responsible for several Samsung Galaxy S20 leaks over the past week, reports the news on Twitter with a screenshot of the Korean V50’s changelog. According to a Reddit thread, the V50 began receiving the Android 10 update in South Korea for those enrolled in the Beta program last week.
The changelog mentions some new features to the UI including pop-out window support, full gesture navigation support, and enhancements to the dual-display accessory. The camera app now separates camera and video modes and the Lock app has been removed.
We’d hope that the Korean variant’s update would indicate that Android 10 is coming to the V50 in Western markets soon.
