Although LG is no longer around, the business is still providing support for its past handsets. The LG V50 ThinQ’s Android 12 upgrade was made available by LG today in the US.
2019 saw the release of the LG V50 ThinQ, which advanced LG’s transition to foldable smartphones. An additional screen might be added to the device in a unique situation, providing more room for a second app or some cool game controls. It’s a concept LG stuck with throughout the V60 and Velvet in 2020. The LG G8X introduced the concept the year before, but the V50 quickly became the device of choice.
Additionally, the LG V50 ThinQ was the first 5G-capable smartphone from the brand.
Now that Android 12 is becoming available to US models, the LG V50 ThinQ is receiving what is likely to be its final significant update. This afternoon, Verizon provided the update, which included a similar small changelog to other Android 12 releases for LG smartphones.
Android 12 brings new features to the V50, such as privacy controls for location sharing, privacy indicators for the microphone and camera, and more. However, there are no Material You or significant UI changes.
Notably, LG had also promised updates for two more devices in April. Android 12 was installed to the LG V60 early this year.
