LG’s decision to officially close down its mobile phone business, which was once the world’s third largest mobile phone maker for six consecutive years, has disappointed LG fans.
One of the problems many people have with this is whether or not they will continue to receive software updates for existing phones.
LG has given a clear answer to this, and accordingly LG devices will receive the Android 11 update, and LG is reportedly planning to release the Android 12 version for some devices as well.
While not a definite statement, it is speculated that Android 12 will be available for devices such as the LG Wing, LG Velvet, and perhaps the LG V60 ThinQ, which were released last year.
LG will also be providing security patch updates for a number of years, with details of how long and in which countries it will be available in the future.
In terms of hardware, LG will continue to repair its components, and even free repair coupons will be valid.
Over time, LG will limit the production of spare parts for its mobile phones, but it is safe to assume that third-party accessory manufacturers will fill this gap.
LG has decided to close its mobile division from July 31 this year and is preparing to focus on other electronics devices under the LG brand.
