If LG commit OS update support long ago, it will remain strong. Anyway, LG may still have a chance, like Nokia, back into smartphone arena once the worldwide pandemic crisis is over if LG proven keep it pledges continue support the software update.

Wow, 3 security updates. Gg LG.! Go home, you're drunk.

That's two more updates than my unlocked LG G5 ever got a three more updated than my T-Mobile variant of the LG V20. I never got a single update for my V20 and my G5 went from Marshmallow to Nougat and that's it.

Some carrier variants got Oreo. In fairness, I never cared for Oreo though. My favorite is Pie followed by Nougat and Marshmallow. Oreo messed up battery life on my first generation Pixel. So I didn't mind if both my G5 and V20 were stuck on Nougat.

I will miss LG though. They never got left-leaning political like Google and Apple did cheating an election and their censorship towards conservatives by deleting stuff to help their cause. My top 3 favs are LG and old school Motorola and Nokia from the Aughts.

Talk is cheap, LG is betting people will forget about it. Currently it’s a hot topic and they need to save face. You can take your V60 back with it’s fault usb c slot.

The text is wrong. The LG V50 was launched with android 9, that would put it up in line for receiving Android 12, not 13.

Only if they had announced it earlier, might have survived till now!

Lenovo should learn from LG . They don't update the global models. Here's the story and hope you will raise Question for customers. Launched in 2019, Lenovo Z6 Pro runs Android 9 out of box on Snapdragon 855 platform with 8Gigs of ram. They've updated from April to October Security Patch and nothing else. Literally nothing, while Chinese version updated to Android 11 !!!! They don't even respond on forum's and social media, one last reply was ' no more updates planned'. Even Z6 Pro is a top notch gaming with PC Level Cooling in 2019 and excellent camera's!! But the point is they don't care about updating the phone for rest of the World customers.
