Sprint updates LG G7 ThinQ, Moto G7 Play, Moto G6 Play with October security patch

US telecom company, Sprint has started rolling out October 2019 Android security updates to the LG G7 ThinQ, Moto G7 Play, and Moto G6 Play, just a week after it released the same for the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy A50.

The OTA reserved for the Sprint-based LG G7 ThinQ, with model number G710PM, carries the version G710P18a and appears to have released on October 29, as posted by a Sprint Community Manager. This is the LG G7 ThinQ’s first update in over a month after the device received August 2019 security patch back in September.

Sprint’s Motorola G7 Play with model number XT1952-4 also receives an OTA update with firmware version PCYS29.105-134-3. The update changelog notes October 2019 security patches for the device.

Alongside the more recent G7 Play, Motorola’s G6 Play (model XT-1922-7) locked on to Sprint is also getting an update with Android Security Patch level: October 2019. The update carries the software version PCPS29.118-41-2 and appears to have started rolling out on October 24.

It’s interesting to see that the US-based telecom giant is only offering October 2019 security to these three devices when Note 10/10 Plus units bought from the same carrier are now home to November 2019 security.
