AT&T joins Verizon with LG Velvet Android 11 update

AT&T joins Verizon with LG Velvet Android 11 update

LG swears that at least some of its current phones will be getting updates, some up to the upcoming Android 12, as it bids the smartphone market goodbye. We can't speak to the likelihood of that outcome (well, we could, but we're being nice), but at least one more current model is getting updated to Android 11. The Verizon version of the LG Velvet is starting to get its Android 11 OTA this weekend.

Will your LG phone get an Android 11 or 12 update?

Will your LG phone get an Android 11 or 12 update?

I never thought I'd see LG shut its mobile division before Sony or HTC, but here we are. The South Korean company officially announced its exit from the smartphone market a few days ago. While the company wasn't explicit about the software support situation at the time, some details have emerged since.

LG's Android dreams may be dead, but software support shall live on

LG's Android dreams may be dead, but software support shall live on

When LG shut down its mobile division last week, a few details remained unclear about its existing products. We initially speculated that the latest flagships should be in for at least another big upgrade to Android 12, but now LG has shed some light on its plans going forward. It pledges to update most of its flagships for up to three years.

LG support site details a very pokey Android 11 update plan

So far, the only notable LG devices we've seen updated to Android 11 are the V60 and the Velvet (in South Korea, anyway). According to a support page on LG's German site, a few more phones will get the big software bump ... just don't expect them to be especially timely. Why would you, at this point?

LG Velvet arrives at T-Mobile with MediaTek 5G chipset and $588 price tag

LG Velvet arrives at T-Mobile with MediaTek 5G chipset and $588 price tag

It's always unusual when one variant of a phone gets different specs than all the others, but that's what's happened with T-Mobile's LG Velvet. For some reason, T-Mobile decided they wanted a Velvet with a MediaTek chipset — something no other Velvet variant globally has. Plus, it has a smaller battery. Granted, this model is pretty cheap at $588, but we'd expect a little more discount for the lesser specs.

LG Velvet review: Different doesn't necessarily mean 'better'

LG Velvet review: Different doesn't necessarily mean 'better'

LG could use a win. While it once innovated with modular hardware and pushing the whole industry past 16:9 screens, it's been hard to find any unambiguous successes over the last few generations of G- and V-series flagships. That's not to say that they weren't decently good phones, but none really stood out — maybe the V40 was one of the best, but even then we couldn't recommend paying big money for it. Is it time to take things back to the drawing board?

LG really seems to want to avoid making a foldable phone

LG really seems to want to avoid making a foldable phone

Over the past few years, phone manufacturers have gotten increasingly creative with their concepts. From phones like the OnePlus Concept One to the newly-released Moto Razr, it's clear that not every rectangular device in our pocket has to be boring. A new report claims that LG is working on a unique new phone codenamed WING that has an interesting trick up its feathers.

LG reveals Velvet's price ahead of official launch

LG’s troubled smartphone business seems to be taking a few marketing lessons from OnePlus in the hopes of building up a little buzz once again. The company has been dropping some key features of its upcoming LG Velvet over the last week or so, weeks before the phone’s official unveiling on May 7. In its latest update, LG gives away a few more details about the handset, including its local availability date, possibly leaving only pricing for the actual announcement.
