Left the smartphone business, LG continues to update its phones to Android 12 and promises to upgrade to Android 13
When LG announced its decision to wind down the smartphone business last year, it assured its customers that it would continue to provide software updates and service support for a period of time. The company has confirmed that flagship phones from 2019, including the G and V series phones, as well as the Velvet and Wing, will be eligible for three numbered operating system updates.
Luckily for those who own an LG phone, it looks like the company is intent on delivering on the promise. Last month, the Velvet became the company’s first phone to receive the Android 12 update, and now the company has announced which other phones will receive the software update this quarter.
The company has released a list of models that may receive updates in the second quarter of 2022. The mid-range models Q52, LG Velvet, and LG Wing will receive security updates, while the Q92 5G, V50 ThinQ, and V50S ThinQ will receive Android 12.
Notably, the LG V60 is missing from the list, but that’s presumably because the phone hasn’t been officially released in South Korea. The company has indicated that two phones, the LG Wing and Velvet, will also receive Android 13 sometime in the third quarter.
How powerful will the new flagship smartphones be? The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 platform is credited with a frequency of up to 3.72 GHz
The maximum frequencies of single-chip systems for smartphones have not changed for many years. But the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC could be very different from anything that came before. According to MyDrivers, Qualcomm’s new platform’s super-core frequency could reach an impressive 3.72 GHz!
For comparison, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is 3.2 GHz, while the version for Galaxy has a frequency increased to 3.36 GHz. That is, there will be an increase of 16% relative to the regular version. And in general, this is a very high value for mobile SoCs based on the Arm architecture.
According to leaks, Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will have a configuration of 1 + 5 + 2, that is, there will be only two energy-efficient cores. This should greatly improve performance even without taking into account frequencies, but how voracious such a platform will be is an open question.
The network already has the result of the new SoC in Geekbench, where the platform scores 1930 and 6236 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively, but this is so much that for now it is worth treating this result with caution.
