[Update: More devices] LG Velvet, V50 ThinQ, V50S ThinQ, K30 & Q60 software update plan for September 2020 released officially
This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (published on September 1, 2020) follows:
LG has been a little slow in updating its devices with the Android 10 update. The OEM started rolling out the OS update back in June and some devices are yet to receive it. Also, in August we saw a bunch of LG devices pick the Android 10 update.
LG X6, also known as LG Q60 outside Korea, got the Android 10-based LG UX 9.0 update earlier in August followed by LG G7 ThinQ in Europe. After some time, LG V40 ThinQ started receiving the OS update in Europe followed by the Indian LG V40 ThinQ variant.
Now, the OEM has released a software update plan for the third quarter of 2020. Since Q3 2020 will be over with September, it is safe to say that the update plan is for the same month and includes a bunch of devices.
The OEM has listed LG Velvet, LG X2(2019) (also known as LG K30), LG X2(2019) (also known as LG Q60), LG V50 ThinQ, and LG V50S ThinQ, in the update plan. It seems that LG plans to provide some performance updates to these devices which is what the update plan outlines.
LG Velvet is supposed to get support for LG U+ AR Glass along with an update for SKT/KT emergency positioning app which LG V50S ThinQ will also get. On the other hand, LG V50 ThinQ update will include information on 5G roaming for numerous operators.
LG K30 (also known as LG X2(2019)) and LG Q60 (also known as LG X6(2019)) will get security enhancements with Google security updates and navigation bar touch stability respectively.
While the update plan has listed the Korean variants of all devices, it is safe to assume that Global variants might also get similar updates. That said, we will provide details as and when more information becomes available so stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.
