Android 12 to a selected number of LG devices: Yesterday, LG announced in a press release to from the smartphone market to step. Not good news for users of LG devices, of course, because what about the upcoming updates? Android 11 is not even out on all devices, not to mention the plan for the upcoming Android 12. LG has lifted a corner of the veil and this seems (for the time being) on good news. There are still updates for your smartphone.
Android 12 to a selected number of LG devices
Via the LG’s Korean website a statement has been released about the update policy now that the company has stopped making new smartphones. Since Korean is not our strongest point and Google Translate cannot translate images, we are lucky to have a user Sleepy Kuma found on Twitter with a translation. LG, for example, has announced that Android updates will continue for the time being. A select number of LG smartphones will also receive the upgrade to Android 12. It is not yet known which devices these are. LG will also continue with security updates for the time being. However, they do keep a close eye on things, because as stated, the plans regarding updates may change in the future.
Android 11 rollout is now underway
LG is currently rolling out Android 11, so if you have a device that runs on an older Android version, you can expect the update soon. Software updates have never been the South Korean manufacturer’s forte, so you may have to be patient. The update is coming anyway.
Also on LG’s German website
Update: After publication, we also found a Q&A on the LG’s German website. Here you will find the same answers, but in text form. If German is not your strong point, you can simply use Google Translate here.
