LG V60 ThinQ 5G receives Android 12 update
LG launched the V60 ThinQ 5G as it’s 2020 flagship smartphone. The device was said to be the company’s last proper 5G handset in the market. Of course, we all know that the brand has now left the smartphone industry for good. However, the company still seems to be holding on to its software update promise. The V60 ThinQ 5G is now getting the taste of the latest Android 12 update.
The LG V60 ThinQ in the US, specifically the T-Mobile models are getting the Android 12 update. What’s surprising is that the phone wasn’t on LG’s list of eligible devices for the Android 12 update but it’s still getting it, anyway. It appears that LG wants to offer most of its premium smartphones the latest updates. For instance, recently, the LG Velvet received the Andriod 12 update in South Korea.
The build number for the update is SKQ1.211103.001 and the update is sized 1.17GB. There’s not much information in the changelog as it just vaguely mentions bug fixes, security and system improvements (via). The update also brings March 2022 security patch, not the latest, but still a recent one.
If you own a V60 ThinQ and are from the US, you should have received the OTA update notification. You can also update it manually by heading to Settings > Software Update. If you do not see the Android 12 update in the Software update section, do wait for some time as it’s likely a staged release, so it will take some time to reach V60 ThinQ models.
