Since the release of SharePoint Framework 1.8.0, you will gain control over which TypeScript version to run in the build process. Until the release of 1.8.0 version, we were always tight to TypeScript version 2.4.2. There was no way to change this, as it was part of the internal SPFx build engine, but this has changed.
A new version of SharePoint Framework was just released and one of the great things is that some of the dependencies were bumped. In version SPFx version 1.8.0, TypeScript was updated to 2.7.2 and React to 16.7.0. The React version is not even so old; it was released in December 2018 and comes with some handy features like lazy loading of components.
