LG is well known for its electronics, you know, TVs, Home Theatre systems and so on. The company also has a rather healthy smartphone business with very impressive devices like the LG V-series that brings unparalleled video performance to users.

The company has also tried to regularly update its device to its latest version of LG UX and even to new Android security patch levels.


As we come to the close of the second quarter of 2020, focus now shifts to manufacturers and their plans for their devices in terms of updates for the third quarter of 2020.

Today LG has unveiled its schedule for updates to its devices for the period between July and September 2020. The schedule highlights some of the company’s devices including the LG X6 2019, the LG Q70 and the LG V50 ThinQ among others.
