LG Android 11 update: Device list and expected release date

It’s only the beginning of September and Google has already rolled out its latest, Android 11, to supported Pixel devices — Pixel 2 and above. In response, OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo, and RealMe have rolled out their respective Open Beta programs for respective devices, while Samsung has kicked off pre-beta in South Korea and the United States.

And if you own an LG phone, you are probably wondering whether your device will be getting an Android 11 update or not. We have compiled this comprehensive guide based on LG’s support for its previous models which should give you a good idea about your device’s eligibility.

Note: LG is yet to release an official roadmap for Android 11 updates, but when that happens, we’ll be sure to add it to this post. Check back for more recent updates.

Which LG devices would get Android 11?

When it comes to software updates, LG is one of the most unpredictable brands out there. They don’t have a “two-updates” policy, so, we’re never sure which phones would miss out on an update and when. LG hasn’t also been particularly busy over the last year, only release a couple of new devices — LG V60 and LG Velvet.

Apart from the two, last year’s LG G8, G8X, V50, and V50s are expected to get the latest version of Android.

When Will my LG device get Android 11?

As mentioned, LG doesn’t have a roadmap for Android 11 yet, so, it’s almost impossible to know which devices would get the latest version of Android. Still, we’ve come up with a guesstimate for your convenience.
