The LG V60 ThinQ is on the verge of receiving Android 11 for the first time
The V60 ThinQ is currently LG's most-powerful smartphone, and it seems that it will be the company's first smartphone to receive Android 11. Typically, LG releases OS updates to South Korea devices initially, but US handsets appear to be the ones in line for Android 11 first.
Specifically, T-Mobile and Verizon-branded devices will be the first to be upgraded to Google's latest OS. For example, the latter has published the kernel source code for the V60 ThinQ, which should indicate that Android 11 is up to two months away from landing on the device.
However, MyLGPhones reports that T-Mobile tested the final Android 11 build for the V60 ThinQ last week, on January 13. The build in question is V600TM20a_00_0113, which follows V600TM19u_00_0106 and V600TM19s_00_1227 that T-Mobile tested on January 6 and December 27, respectively.
Additionally, a T-Mobile representative claims that the carrier will begin rolling out the Android 11 update to the V60 ThinQ from January 22. Sadly, the update will arrive in waves, so it could be a while before T-Mobile upgrades all eligible handsets to Android 11. Nonetheless, hopefully, this is the beginning of a more comprehensive Android 11 rollout for the V60 ThinQ and other recent LG smartphones like the Velvet and the Wing.
