LG Pledges For Three Years Of Android Updates To Premium Phones
Earlier this week, LG announced quitting the smartphone business to move its focus to growth areas like EV components, robotics, AI and B2B solutions. Despite moving on, LG will continue to provide support to their customers.
LG announced today that their premium smartphones will get three iterations of Android OS update from the year of purchase. This will be effective for the smartphone currently in use and for the new buyers too.
Which smartphones series eligible for three iterations of Android OS update?
LG smartphones like V and G series, Wing and Velvet released in 2019 or later will be getting Android updates from their year of release. However, certain models which came in 2020 like LG Stylo and K series will only be getting two Android OS updates.
However, this news came to as surprise as LG is not known for releasing Android updates, even when it was in the smartphone market.
Additionally, LG said to have continue manufacturing smartphones till the Q2. Reason said to “meet contractual obligations to carriers and partners”. So, people can still buy LG phones that are in the inventory as well as to receive customer support and security software updates. However, these updated will be offered for “a period of time for certain devices”.
