LG Makes V50 Kernel Source Code accessible Ahead Of Release  

Back in February LG V50 debuted alongside the G8 at MWC. The G8 is currently out, however, the same can’t be said for the V50. In any case, LG has chosen to release the kernel source code for the V50 now a little bit late as compared to G8.


If you’re a developer and you’d like to search over the code, the 231MB download is underneath. In reality, you won’t probably to do much with it at the present time, yet it’s better to have the source code sooner than later. Contrasted it to past years, where the V phone was a critical hardware knock over the going with G device, this year’s V50 is the most part just a G8 with 5G support. It has a similar processor, a similar amount of RAM and storage, and most of the similar features.


As the name shows that 5G support is the main selling point for this smartphone. The phone will be accessible from Verizon this year in summer, while Sprint hasn’t reported an official timeline. Different changes from the G8 incorporate an extra 12MP rear camera, a slightly bigger display, and a slightly bigger battery. The V50 is really a downgrade in certain areas from the G8 such as it lacks the phone’s Z camera for palm verification, and it also doesn’t have a Crystal Sound OLED.
