Older LG flagships Will get the New Velvet UI, starting with the LG V50 ThinQ

The LG Velvet will not only bring a major change in LG’s smartphone designs but also the software. LG officially announced that the older flagship smartphones from LG will also get the company’s latest UI, the Velvet UI.

LG took the decision after conducting surveys and ask for opinions from the LG users through the Quick Help app. The new Velvet UI is already rolling out to the LG V50 ThinQ as an OTA update (starting with units in South Korea). LG’s new Velvet UI brings a lot of new changes and customization options. It changes the Volume control dialog and the In-call information window, it also allows you to customize the color of the notification bar.

Besides the V50, five other LG flagships will receive Velvet UI – LG V50S ThinQ, LG G8 ThinQ, LG V40 ThinQ, LG V35 ThinQ, and the LG G7 ThinQ.

The company will step up its game when it comes to long-term support for its phones to inspire confidence in buyers (this is again the result of a Quick Help survey). It says it will continue providing OS updates and security patches but didn’t give concrete time frames (the V35 and G7 are from mid-2018, so they are two years old at this point).
