South Korean giant LG is exiting the market mobile after successive periods of accumulated losses in this department. The decision was made official earlier this week (5), causing doubts and concerns among current natural users.
In what state will the current smartphones be, as is the case with the LG Wing, or the LG Velvet, the latest adventures of technology in this competitive market. Will they receive updates with official software? The answer is a resounding yes for three years!
There is good news for current LG smartphone users
LG clarified today, through its channels, its commitment to bring up to three years of updates for “premium” phones launched in 2019 and also in 2020. Among the models contemplated we have the LG Wing, as well as the LG Velvet.
On the other hand, some more economical models such as LG Stylo and the LG K smartphone range will be entitled to two years of operating system updates. For current users, this safeguarding of their interests is really positive.
Future updates will depend on Google and its Android distribution, as well as the compatibility and performance of the devices, points out LG. In any case, this means that your phones should receive Android 12 and Android 13.
Software updates are guaranteed for two or three years
We emphasize, however, that the terminology used by LG is imprecise. Not expressly stated that we will have three complete updates, or generational leaps in the operating system. We do not know if it will be effectively three generations of the Android system.
The brand says that “all premium smartphones from LG, currently in use, will receive three iterations of the Android operating system, since the year of their purchase”. These iterations can range from security updates to new versions of the OS.
For example, if you buy an LG smartphone now, you can receive three security updates for May, June and July. This is the worst case scenario, and still managed to fulfill the promise given by the brand.
In any case, it is likely that the devices in circulation will receive at least one to two generations of the Android operating system, therefore Android 12 and Android 13.
For a manufacturer known for its dubious, slow updates and with a few bugs, it is really ironic to see LG now reinforcing this very important aspect for users. It is a case to say, better late than never.
If they are concerned about updates and official support for a particular device, the manufacturer urges consumers to get in direct contact with it.
