Asus released the first stable Android 10 update about two months after the OS was released. For Android 11, it was also pretty quick when it released the first update, about three months after launch. Based on this information, Asus expects to release the first stable Android 12 update in January, but we may see it at the end of December.

Asus first upgraded its ZenFone 6 series to Android 11 before releasing an update to the latest version. ZenFone 7 phone, it looked strange. Not sure what the plans are for this year, but the first phone to get the update is the ZenFone 7 or ZenFone 8 series. Time will tell.

Unfortunately, Asus isn’t very quick when it comes to releasing updates to their ROG Phone lineup. Building on previous years, we hope Asus can speed things up this year, but don’t expect to get an update in the next six months.

LG is out of the mobile business, but still plans to update some phones to Android 12. The company didn’t mention any phones, but I think they’ll focus on high-end devices such as: LG Wing and V60.

LG released the first stable Android 11 update four months after the OS was released. If the story is the same this year, we can expect the tech giant to release Android 12 sometime in February. But since LG no longer cares about the smartphone market, there’s a chance we’ll have to wait longer.

Also, LG usually releases Android updates in its home country of Korea first before releasing to the US, Europe, and elsewhere.
