LG Korea has announced which devices will receive Android 12 and 13.
The company’s German arm has also revealed an Android 11 roadmap.

The Android 11 update roadmap mentions a diverse set of phones headlined by the LG Velvet
5G which is already receiving the update in certain regions. We can also see the regular LTE
Velvet, LG Wing and G8s as well as the K42 and K52 midrangers. Keep in mind this a
regional LG post and does not reflect all the devices that will get the Android 11 update.

As for LG devices expected to get the Android 12 and Android 13 update we can see most of
the premium LG devices from the past two years with the Wing, Velvet, and the V50 series and G8
as well as a few LG Q-series midranges.

LG South Korea is also showing the Velvet and Wing devices will be eligible for Android 13.

Again this a regional post and does not reflect the final list of devices scheduled to get the next iterations of Android updates.

Here is the list of LG devices scheduled for Android 12 and Android 13:

The LG Wing and LG Velvet were released in 2020.

By the way, the  LG Wing is a dual-screen rotating phone. Thus, the company is going to push an Android 13 update for it though there are more mainstream models that could get it.
The manufacturer also said that if there are any major problems with the Android 12 update during the testing process, LG may abandon this plan.


After announcing its withdrawal from the smartphone world, the manufacturer said it will provide extended software upgrades for its smartphones. It also stated that LG’s high-end smartphone users can now get three years of operating system upgrades. At the same time, owners of the mid-range and entry-level phones can get up to two years of upgrades.
