LG Wing supports 5G C-band on Verizon

2020’s LG Wing turned out to be a bit of a “last hurrah” for LG, as it was the company’s last ambitious smartphone release before its mobile division shut down. While the concept isn’t taking off in a major way, LG isn’t done with the Wing just yet, as it rolled out an update this week to add 5G C-band support to the Verizon model.

System Update 11 for the Verizon variant of the LG Wing is primarily characterized by its support for the carrier’s C-Band 5G network. The LG Wing already offered support for the carrier’s Nationwide and Ultra-Wideband (mmWave) networks, but this latest addition expands support for faster speeds. C-Band 5G is a middle ground between Sub6 and mmWave networks, delivering faster speeds over a wider base than limited mmWave technology.

Verizon explains:

For customers with an unlimited plan with 5G Ultra Wideband access, this software upgrades your device with more 5G Ultra Wideband access. For customers whose plans do not include 5G Ultra Wideband access, you can upgrade your plan at any time in the My Verizon app, My Biz app, or at verizon.com. 5G Ultra Wideband only available in certain parts of certain cities.

This software update also includes the latest Android security patch and LG app version updates.

This is the only significant change in this update. The LG Wing still runs on Android 11, although LG has released Android 12 for a few other devices. The update delivers the April 2022 Security Update, which is always good to see.
