The LG Velvet was the last mainstream flagship phone from LG before the company gave up on smartphones, except for the swivel LG Wing. The company promised to keep its existing phones updated for a while yet, and now the first US carrier version of Velvet is receiving its Android 12 upgrade.
Verizon is now rolling out Android 12 to its carrier variant of the LG Velvet, officially known as the LG Velvet 5G UW. The update has a software version of the G900VM30a and the security patch level from February 2022 – yes, it’s almost May, but LG was not good at quick updates, even when selling phones. Below is the full change log.
LG started rolling out Android 12 for Velvet in its home country of South Korea back in March. The T-Mobile version of the LG Velvet is still on Android 11 with the security patch from December 2021, while the AT&T variant has Android 11 with the security patch level from July 2021.
If you have the LG Velvet 5G UW, you may already have the update available. You can also check for it by opening the Settings app and going to About Phone> Software Updates.
