LG is rolling out Android 11 update to Velvet 5G UW users in the United States. The company rolled out the Velvet 5G software update to users in South Korea in January this year.
The latest update brings the main features of Android 11. For example, users will see notification bubbles for messaging apps, improved camera experience, and other user interface changes. Velvet 5G UW users can check the availability of the new update through Settings> About phone> Software updates.
According to droid-life, the update to Android 11 could be the last big update for Velvet users in some time. LG earlier this week announced it was shutting down its mobile phone business. The move had raised concerns about software updates and other support facilities for existing LG users.
LG later said it would provide operating system updates for at least three years to select handsets released in 2019 and later. The so-called three-year commitment is applicable on phones such as the G, V, Velvet and Wing series. Some 2020 models such as the LG Stylo and K series of smartphones will receive at least two operating system updates.
That said, LG Velvet is among 13 handsets that will receive the Android 11 update. These handsets are LG Wing, LG Velvet, LG Velvet LTE, LG V50S, LG V50, LG G8, LG Q31, LG Q51, LG Q52, LG Q61, LG Q70, LG Q92 and LG Q9.
