LG’s choice to leave the telephone business has stressed proprietors of its new handsets. In any case, there is some uplifting news: the organization has guaranteed three years of Android refreshes for its exceptional gadgets sent off in 2019 or later.
LG’s piece of the pie in the portable business has been declining as of late. In 2013, the organization was the world’s third-biggest telephone producer, yet its piece of the pie has since contracted to around 2%. Following six years of misfortunes adding up to roughly $4.5 billion, the organization cautioned in January that it could leave the business. That situation turned into a reality after Volkswagen AG of Germany and Vingroup JSC of Vietnam pulled out of buyout talks.
Organizations leaving the telephone business rush to cease support for their handsets, yet LG has guaranteed up to three cycles of Android refreshes for premium gadgets delivered in 2019 or later. They are as per the following:
- LG G8 ThinQ
- LG G8x ThinQ
- LG G8s ThinQ
- LG V50 ThinQ
- LG V60 ThinQ
- LG Velvet
- LG Wing
The LG Velvet, for instance, was delivered with Android 10, so proprietors ought to get refreshes until Android 13.
Moreover, a portion of LG’s new non-premium telephones will get the latest renditions of Android. It specifies “certain 2020 models like the LG Stylo and K series” as getting two operating system updates.LG adds that future updates will be dependent upon Google’s conveyance plan as well as different factors like gadget execution and similarity.
LG plans to close its telephone business on July 31. It will keep on assembling gadgets all through the subsequent quarter, and current LG handsets will in any case be accessible. For these models, administration backing and security refreshes “will keep on being accommodated for some time.”
