LG is very late to Android Pie rollout, but it’s finally making the update available. However, if you think of Android 10 being released right now to various devices, the delay is just very disappointing.

Will LG G6 get Android 10?

LG isn’t the most generous when it comes to updating its older devices. The 2017 LG device, which came with Android Nougat out of the box, is yet to get Android Pie, so, it’s highly unlikely that it’d get updated to Android 10.

How to get LG G6 Android 10 update unofficially?

If aren’t already aware, XDA Developers forum is one of the most sought after tech spaces in the world. So, if you’re hopeful about taking the newest Android for a spin make sure to keep tabs on the LG G6 development thread.

LG G6 Android 10 custom ROMs

While LG’s been delaying the Android Pie release, some developers over at XDA have already released custom Pie-based ROMs. The same could happen with Android 10, as well. However, considering that the G6 is more than two years old already, we might not see the same level of enthusiasm in them.
