The LG Velvet’s new UI is coming to 6 other LG smartphones

The LG Velvet is one of the company’s most exciting devices in a while, and that largely revolves around the brand new design. While the hardware shows the most drastic change, LG has also refreshed its software for the Velvet. The company has now announced that 6 older smartphones will be getting the updated UI as well.

Admittedly, the LG Velvet’s UI is not a super drastic change from LG UXs of the past. They’re now calling it “Velvet UI,” and what’s changed includes a few new things like notification bar color customization, volume adjustment settings, and a new pop-up window during a call. This new UI will be brought to 6 of LG’s latest premium devices in Korea:

  • LG V50 ThinQ
  • LG V50S ThinQ
  • LG V40 ThinQ
  • LG V35 ThinQ
  • LG G8 ThinQ
  • LG G7 ThinQ

Unfortunately, LG did not share any plans to bring Velvet UI to older LG phones outside of Korea. The list of devices does include some from as far back as 2018, which is a positive sign for LG’s commitment to older devices. The company hasn’t had the best track record when it comes to supporting old devices with software updates.
