LG has announced a pledge to concern long run Android OS updates to numerous of its smartphones despite confirming previously this week that it’ll be leaving the telephone enterprise completely. The Velvet, Wing, and G- and V- collection telephones from 2019 or later really should be obtaining three Android updates from their yr of launch, and “certain 2020 models these as LG Stylo and K series” will get two updates.
For illustration, the Velvet came out past year with Android 10, and its Android 11 rollout is currently in progress. That implies that it must also be receiving Android 12 and 13 at some point, assuming Google carries on its yearly cadence. LG variously describes this announcement as a “three-year pledge” and a “three-OS-update assurance.”
The announcement is a very little surprising because LG telephones generally wouldn’t have been envisioned to get that many updates even though LG was essentially in the cellphone business enterprise. The organization declared a devoted “Software Update Center” in 2018, but small to almost nothing improved about its Android update condition. Most of its hottest quality phones aren’t scheduled to obtain Android 11 until finally the finish of 2021.
Previously this 7 days, LG’s Korean site indicated that some picked styles would also get an Android 12 update.
