LG backtracks on its stance, promises Pie for the ignored LG V20
Last week, it was revealed that LG had taken off the V20 from its scheduled maintenance list, a move that spelled the end of software support for the two-year-old flagship after it had received just one major OS update. It would appear that the ensuing media outcry has caused LG to make a U-turn on its decision.
The company, in an official update roadmap, has confirmed that the V20 will receive Pie after all, although it will not be until the third quarter of the year. Q3 was when the V20 received Oreo last year, after almost two years running on Android Nougat. By the time the update rolls out, we expect Android Q to have been released.
In any case, LG V20 owners may rest a bit easier now, with this in mind. Of course, there’s a chance LG never makes do on its promises and the V20 remains stuck on Oreo. Wouldn’t put it past the company, considering its history with software updates.
