He said that even if LG shuts down its mobile department, it will continue to update it. At this point, LG Velvet continues to receive updates.
LG, which had quite a difficult time, unfortunately could not survive despite the dozens of innovative products it brought to the market and closed its mobile department. After that, the biggest question mark in mind was the updates. It was a matter of curiosity what the version updates on the Android side, which were already quite complex, would happen after this news. However, LG also announced that it will continue to provide update support for its smartphones soon. On top of that, LG Velvet started getting updates.
LG Velvet 5G received the Android 11 update in South Korea in January. Now, the model that has tasted the latest version of Android is Verizon Velvet 5G UW.
Android 11 for Velvet 5G UW comes with the version number G900VM20a and the March 2021 Android security. With the update also comes many goodies of Android 11, including a new UI and chat bubbles.
If the Android 11 OTA update for the Velvet 5G UW hasn’t arrived yet, you can try checking manually by going to your smartphone’s Settings> About Phone> Software updates menu.
