The new LG Velvet can already be considered a real success for the South Korean manufacturer. That’s because the device managed to attract public attention and show that the company still has the strength to launch competitive smartphones.
Taking advantage of the great public acceptance, LG made an important decision this week. According to the company, LG UX interface will be replaced by Velvet UI on their new smartphones.
In addition, the manufacturer also promised to deliver the novelty through an update to older models, including even the intermediates LG Q51 and Q61.
Known for being slow when it comes to software updates, it seems that LG finally wants to change the situation. This is because the company must release Velvet UI for devices that launched in 2018:
The devices eligible for the first phase of the update are: V50 ThinQ, V50S ThinQ, V40 ThinQ, V35 ThinQ, G8 ThinQ and G7 ThinQ.
Of course, the new Velvet UI does not represent a drastic change from the LG UX. The company just made some touches that made the interface even more elegant and functional.
For a while, it is not yet clear whether models of the K line will also enter the update schedule. Anyway, there are cases where the LG K handsets are just the renamed LG Q and this can make Velvet UI also reach these models.
