The LG Wing was the brand’s final major smartphone release before it was shut down earlier this year, and it was certainly out of left field with its bizarre take on dual displays. Today, LG began rolling out Android 11 to the Wing in what is likely one of its final updates.
This update also includes the November 2021 security patch, which has been slightly improved over the previous September 2021 patch.
Verizon’s update changelog lists the usual feature additions like notification bubbles, but it’s clear that not much has changed in LG’s skin on top of the OS. The user interface appears to be largely unchanged, though Verizon notes minor changes such as support for Focus Mode via quick settings, expanded support for emergency alerts, and the apparent removal of some mobile hotspot controls.
While an update to Android 11 more than two months after the release of Android 12 isn’t exactly quick, it’s not terrible given that LG’s mobile division essentially no longer exists. The company previously committed to two years of support for flagship devices, including the Wing, so updates are expected to continue until the end of next year. Who can say? Perhaps Google will surprise us all with an Android 12 update.
