The LG Velvet was the last mainstream flagship phone from LG before the company gave up on smartphones, excluding the swiveling LG Wing. The company promised to keep its existing phones updated for a little while longer, and now the first U.S. carrier version of the Velvet is receiving its Android 12 upgrade.
Verizon is now rolling out Android 12 to its carrier variant of the LG Velvet, known officially as the LG Velvet 5G UW. The update has a software version of G900VM30a, and the February 2022 security patch level — yes, it’s almost May, but LG wasn’t great at quick updates even when it was selling phones. Below is the full changelog.
LG started rolling out Android 12 to the Velvet in its home country of South Korea back in March. The T-Mobile version of the LG Velvet is still on Android 11 with the December 2021 security patch, while the AT&T variant has Android 11 with the July 2021 security patch level.
If you have the LG Velvet 5G UW, you might already have the update available. You can also check for it by opening the Settings app and heading to About Phone > Software updates.
