LG V60 ThinQ units in the US see a long-awaited upgrade to Android 12
The V60 ThinQ is LG's last premium-tier smartphone, devoid of a V70 successor due to the fact the OEM gave up on its market prior to its launch. All the same, with its microSD card support, Snapdragon 865 processor and 8GB of RAM, not to mention its 5,000mAh battery and large 6.8-inch display that still keep step with trends even in 2022, it may be worth keeping around for some users.
Luckily for some of them, the phablet has just received an upgrade to Android 12. Less fortuitiously, these V60 owners need to be in the US and have the T-Mobile-linked (or LMV600TMLATMOCB) variant to be sent the OTA in question.
Judging by the notification screen posted by some of these users to Reddit, the unexpected upgrade comes with a markedly short changelog: it installs the major upgrade, fixes some bugs, optimizes the systm, applies the March 1, 2022 security patch and that seems to be it.
There is accordingly little word on other aspects of the former flagship's function that might be changed by the update, such as those affecting its innovative Dual Screen accessory. LG has announced that it intends to discharge its support-related duty in relation to some phones in that it will also upgrade them to Android 13, although there is no guarantee that the V60 ThinQ will be among them.
