LG Android 12 update
LG android 12 update list based on LG UX, LG was known for their double-tap to wake feature in their early days, The LG UX was well optimized software which really didn’t had any major issues in terms of RAM Managements & Lags.
We haven’t seen many improvements in the LG UX in the Android 11 version, As the company has stopped production, most likely we don’t see many UI changes in Android 12.
If you are a smartphone enthusiast, you would probably know that, In April 2020, Roger Entner, founder and analyst at Recon Analytics, tweeted about the LG exit. The Korean firm has now stopped manufacturing the smartphones and stop selling them as well.

In addition to that, LG is not out of the competition completely, they will continue to leverage its mobile expertise and develop mobility-related technologies like 6G to help further strengthen competitiveness in other business areas.
Despite this, LG will continue to roll out Android updates. They also mention that they will launch the update on few devices, for a while but they may vary in the regions.

So, Will your device get these updates? [Our Opinion]
We can say LG lag behinds other OEM. Their Hardware is top-notch but their software is not that competitive, they look pretty lazy for the android updates as well. They are not consistent in the updates. they have launched the roadmap for LG android 12 and 13 updates while many of the LG devices still waiting for the Android 11 update.
Apart from this, as LG has clarified by themselves, that they will continue to offer the Android update for a certain time. So, you don’t have to worry, your eligible device will receive the update “LG Android 12 will certainly be waiting game for users”.
