LG has announced that all of its premium smartphones currently in circulation will continue to receive updates for up to three years.
That promise follows the news that the South Korean tech company will pull the plug on its smartphone division next summer.
With the promise, LG wants to reassure current and future customers that their device will not immediately (software) become obsolete. “They will receive updates to the Android operating system from the year of purchase up to three iterations,” it said in a press release on Thursday.
Although LG will stop producing mobile phones in July, the devices will remain for sale for a while until stocks are exhausted. The update promise of three OS updates extends to the premium phones released in 2019 (G series, V series, Velvet and Wing).
Smartphones such as the LG Stylo and K series, which appeared in 2020, are eligible for two OS updates.
