According to information discovered on LG’s own security bulletin webpage, we’ve reach end of life for the LG G5 and and LG V20. We can’t say we’re shocked, but considering neither device has been updated to Pie, we and the owners of these phones are surely a little disappointed.
Looking back at the update history for both phones, neither device received glowing support from LG, but they were updated to Oreo in late September, 2018. Just thinking about that timing, Pie was released by Google in August, with plenty of developer previews before that. It’s not like LG didn’t have time to ensure these near-death devices were running the latest Google software before ceasing support, but that’s the outcome we’ve reached.
With this information now known, it appears the G5 will not be updated past September’s security patch on Oreo and the V20 won’t receive anything past November’s patch on Oreo.
This feels like a good time to remind you that LG has an entire building dedicated to software updates that doesn’t appear to do anything of the sort.
