LG brings Android 13 to its phones

According to Android Central, LG Korea has announced its Android 13 push plan on the official website, and it has been more than a year since they officially abandoned the mobile phone business.
According to LG Korea’s announcement, the first mobile phone to receive the Android 13 push will be the LG Velvet, a mobile phone released in the summer of 2020. Then, the LG Wing, a 2020 phone with a very distinctive rotating dual-screen design, will receive a security update, and Android Central believes it will eventually get Android 13 as well.

In addition, the announcement stated that the LG Q61, Q92 5G, and Q52 5G can also receive Google’s security update, but did not involve any information about Android 13. What is curious is that the LG V60 ThinQ did not appear in the announcement, but the SoC it carries is Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, which should be able to be upgraded. At the same time, LG also emphasized that these upgrades and patches are only applicable to mobile phones in South Korea. As for users in other regions, the push may be delayed a little.

Although LG no longer designs and manufactures smartphones, they still pushed the Android 12 update for the LG Velvet and Wing this year. Although this update does not bring Android 12’s heavy feature, the Material You theme system, LG’s move is also commendable. However, this Android 13 push may be the last update for LG phones. If you want to experience a phone with both persistent updates and pure Android, you probably have to choose Pixel.
