  • LG Korea has announced which devices will receive Android 12 and 13.
  • The company’s German arm has also revealed an Android 11 roadmap.

LG announced that it would be delivering three years of Android version updates for some phones as it winds down its mobile operations. Now, the company has revealed plenty more details, such as an Android 11 roadmap and which phones will receive Android 12 and Android 13.

LG Germany posted the Android 11 roadmap on its website, with updates extending to Q4 2021 for many phones. Of course, the likes of the V60 have already received the update. Check out the timeline in the table below.

Phone name Rollout date Status
LG Velvet 5G April 2021 Completed
LG G8X Q3 2021 Testing
LG Velvet 4G Q4 2021 Testing
LG G8S Q4 2021 Testing
LG Wing Q4 2021 Testing
LG K52 Q4 2021 Testing
LG K42 Q4 2021 Testing

It bears repeating once again that this is the timeline for Germany, so it’s entirely possible that we’ll see discrepancies in other markets (we’d expect the LG Stylo series to offer the update in the US, for example). Nevertheless, this should still give you a rough idea of when to expect Android 11 on your phone. 

LG’s Korean website also revealed (h/t: KBench) that several more devices will get Android 11, albeit without expected rollout dates. These devices are the V50, V50S, Q31, Q51, Q52, Q61, Q70, Q92, and Q9 One.

The Korean website went a step further and revealed which devices will be receiving Android 12 and Android 13 too. You can view the devices in the table below.

Phones Android 12 Android 13
LG Wing Yes Yes
LG Velvet Yes Yes
LG Velvet LTE Yes Yes
LG V50s Yes No
LG V50 Yes No
LG G8 Yes No
LG Q31 Yes No
LG Q52 Yes No
LG Q92 Yes No

LG has previously had a reputation for occasionally launching updates in its home market but not bringing them to other locales. So I wouldn’t hold my breath for the above list to be true for your region. The company also noted that the above list could change and was subject to Google’s policies.
