At the beginning of this week, LG confirmed that it will exit the smartphone business. Despite the news, LG has now officially confirmed that it will roll out three Android OS updates to all its premium smartphones released after 2019. LG specifies the G and V series devices as well as its latest Velvet series and the Wing.
This implies that the LG G8 series, LG V50, LG V60, the trio of LG Velvets and LG Wing are all in line for upgrades up to Android 13 as they all launched with Android 10. Midrangers like the LG Stylo 6 and some LG K-series phones from 2020 will receive two OS updates so users can expect Android 12 as their last major upgrade.
This is a bit surprising and its a nice gesture of gratitude to consumers who have supported LG in the last few years. We’ll make sure to fill you in when updates start rolling out.
