LG has declared a vow to give future Android OS updates to a large number of its cell phones in spite of affirming recently that it’ll be leaving the phone business altogether. The Velvet, Wing, and G-and V-series phones from 2019 or later ought to get three Android updates from their year of release, and “certain 2020 models such as LG Stylo and K series” will get two updates.
For example, the Velvet came out a year ago with Android 10, and its Android 11 rollout is right now in progress. That implies that it ought to likewise be getting Android 12 and 13 eventually, expecting Google proceeds with its yearly cadence. LG differently portrays this declaration as a “three-year pledge” and a “three-OS-update guarantee.”
The declaration is somewhat astounding on the grounds that LG phones generally wouldn’t have been relied upon to get that numerous updates even while LG was really in the phone business.
The organization declared a dedicated “Software Upgrade Center” in 2018, yet little to nothing changed about its Android update circumstance. The vast majority of its most recent premium phones aren’t planned to get Android 11 until the finish of 2021.
Recently, LG’s Korean website demonstrated that some selected models would likewise get an Android 12 update.
