LG is bringing its Velvet UI to older devices, including the V35 ThinQ and G7 ThinQ
LG has confirmed that it will be porting its Velvet UI to older handsets. Announced on its Social LG Korea platform, the South Korean company will be issuing the update as an over-the-air (OTA) download. According to the press release, the following devices will be eligible:
- G7 ThinQ
- G8 ThinQ
- V35 ThinQ
- V40 ThinQ,
- V50 ThinQ
- V50S ThinQ
LG is yet to announce when the six devices will receive the update, nor whether it will be issued globally. However, the LG Velvet UI has already reached the V50 ThinQ in South Korea, so LG has at least begun the rollout process.
With that said, the update will likely only ever be an Android 10-based one for the G7 ThinQ and V35 ThinQ. Both are over two years old at this point and the G7 ThinQ has already received its allotted two OS upgrades. LG Velvet UI will probably bring Android 10 to the V35 ThinQ at least, as the device currently remains rooted on Android 9.0 Pie.
