LG will be providing security updates on a monthly basis which carriers will then be able to make available to customers immediately. We believe these important steps will demonstrate to LG customers that security is our highest priority.
As evident from the statement, the updates will be mainly security focused. So users should not expect that the updates will introduce new features. But after the stagefright vulnerability, security updates are becoming extremely crucial. So, the move from LG reflects their responsibility towards their customers, and is definitely welcome.
But will the carriers be able to push the updates to the users ? We will soon find out !
