LG recently dropped a huge bombshell by announcing its exit from the smartphone segment. Back in April, the company officially confirmed this ruling, saying it was a well-planned decision. The South Korean tech giant confirmed that the company will focus on areas such as electric vehicle components, connected devices, smart homes, robotics, artificial intelligence, and business solutions, as well as platforms and services. The shutdown of the phone company created quite a stir on the internet and left existing LG users with the question of whether or not they would receive updates.

LG later revealed that its premium smartphones will receive three iterations of the Android operating system. Now in the latest development, it has been reported that LG smartphones will not get UX updates for UX 10 except those already running on UX 10 (LG rollable and Rainbow).

Popular tipster Tron shared a tweet stating that LG smartphones will get software updates that bring bugs and feature fixes as well as security updates, but there is no room for a UX update.
