Considering LG no longer has a smartphone business.  I wouldn’t count on that.  Last I read, LG was going to stick to the original schedule of updates for their devices, although I wouldn’t expect those updates to be as frequent or lasting too long.

I understand but I see so many sites like this that say 12 and 13 confirmed.

More than likely they will release updates to Korea but not the USA.

Why Korea?

That’s where LG is based and it’s a Korean company.

Why Korea?


pretty much the majority of the manufacturers are in Korea or based out of Korea.

It’s happening, but for the LTE Quallcom models.

My T-Mobile Velvet received Android 11 an hour ago.

My wife and I received the update to Android 11 yesterday (11/22).

Can you confirm you have the Velvet 5G model and not the 4G?

Yes. My wife and I have the T-Mobile Velvet 5G phones.
