I never thought I would see LG close its mobile division before Sony or HTC, but here we are. The South Korean company officially announced its departure from the smartphone market a few days ago. While the company was not explicit about the software support situation at the time, some details have emerged since.

According to the company̵

7;s Korean website (via XDA developers), it will still continue to roll out Android 11 to some of the devices. If LG follows its previously released launch plan, the LG Wing and LG G8X are among the phones that will receive it. Surprisingly, the company continues to claim that it will update some of the phones to the as yet unreleased Android 12.

The company is still the mother of the phones that get it, but it is safe to assume that the LG phones of the highest quality – Wing, V60 ThinQ and Velvet – have the best chance.

A translated version of the code snippet from LG’s Korean website.

The company keeps its promise by saying that the OS upgrade plans may change depending on Google’s deployment plan and the performance of each device while you test the update. If I were the owner of an LG phone, I would not be too optimistic about the company following this – it does not have a good track record with updates, especially in the last couple of years. As it now leaves the mobile area completely, it would not be a big shock to see it cut its update plans.
