LG’s slow rollout of Android 12 has continued as users report that the LG V60 has started receiving the update in the US.
There are several reports on Reddit indicating that the update is available on the T-Mobile variant. There is not much of a changelog included in the message that appears on users’ devices, but the update includes Android 12, bug fixes, system improvements, and the March security patch.
T-Mobile does not appear to have updated its Android 12 support page to include the device.
LG’s Android 12 update began in March with the LG Velvet in South Korea. US versions have since also begun receiving the update. Interestingly, the LG V60 update seems to have started in the US as opposed to the company’s home country, which is usually par-for-the-course. That said, the company recently released an update plan for Q2 2022 on its Korean side, and strangely enough, the V60 was missing from the list.
When not counting the LG Wing, the V60 was the company’s last “standard” flagship phone that competed with the best Android phones from Samsung. Despite some shortcomings, the device was quite popular among LG fans for its amazing camera performance, battery life and its cheaper price compared to other flagship devices at the time. Unfortunately, a V70 never came to anything, which is probably why there are plenty of fans still clinging to their V60s.
So far, we have not noticed reports of other variants receiving the update, but it may not be long before other provider versions and regions push the update. The V60 is also expected to receive at least one major OS upgrade more under LG’s promise, which is likely to arrive sometime in 2023.
