It only took LG a year, but it has issued Android 11 to the LG Wing. Unsurprisingly, there are caveats with LG's rollout. Currently, Android 11 is only available for devices purchased in South Korea.

LG has released another update to the South Korean version of the LG Wing, its second in three weeks. While last month's update only brought a newer security patch update to the device, this month's is its most significant so far. It is worth stressing that these updates are only rolling out to the LG Wing in South Korea. Seemingly, the device will not receive a comparable update in other markets until early next year.

As the image below shows, F100N20a brings Android 11 to the Wing, over a year after Google released the OS to Pixel smartphones. Incidentally, LG announced the Wing after Android 11 reached general availability. According to the changelog, embedded below, LG has added message bubbles and a notification history sub-menu, among other Android 11-general changes.

F100N20a is available to download now as an over-the-air (OTA) update. Unsurprisingly, the update is large, with the changelog confirming it to be over 2.2 GB. Our LG Wing is eligible to receive F100N20a, so we will report back with any changes LG has made from Android 10 to Android 11. Reputedly, LG has fleshed out its desktop mode, now called Screen+, and has improved overall UI performance.
