New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on January 16, 2020) follows:
While LG didn’t open up an Android 11 beta testing program alongside Google, the company kick-started public beta testing for the LG Velvet in South Korea back in December.
Furthermore, there were rumors that LG began testing Android 11 for the LG V60 ThinQ internally in November.
We also recently reported that the company released the Android 11 kernel source code for the Verizon variant of the LG V60 ThinQ 5G thereby suggesting that the update may begin rolling out soon.
And it appears that this might indeed be the case as we’ve come across an alleged screenshot of a conversation between an individual and a T-Mobile support agent wherein the exact rollout date is mentioned.
In the screenshot, the T-Mobile support agent claims that Android 11 is slated to be released in waves starting from January 22 for the LG V60 ThinQ 5G.
If the information shared by the support agent is correct, it means that we will see the update being released in another few days.
The new update is expected to bring a host of new features and improvements as well as a tweaked user interface.
Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there isn’t much known about LG’s upcoming skin.
This means we’ll have to wait for the update to start rolling out or for an announcement from LG detailing all that’s new with its skin over Android 11.
If T-Mobile starts seeding Android 11 for the LG V60 ThinQ 5G within the next few days, it’s highly likely that the update will also go live for the LG Velvet and other recent LG flagships soon.
Moreover, other carriers would also start rolling out Android 11 for the LG V60 ThinQ 5G around the same time.
That said, stay tuned to our dedicated tracker to know more about the status and availability of Android 11 for all eligible phones from LG.
