LG stops making phones and turns the factory into a home appliance manufacturer



 LG officially confirmed its exit from the mobile segment in early April, but it needed some time to finalize operations. And now, according to reports from Korea, today is the last day for LG phones and tablets to be produced.

The company will continue to support existing devices for some time to come, and the premium versions will also get three years of software support. Some versions (including Q series phones) will receive Android 12, and the latest premium versions are expected to arrive on Android 13. Users will be able to receive after-sales services for 4 years from the date the device was manufactured.


The LG Electronics' smartphone manufacturing plant in Vietnam will switch to home appliances manufacturing. LG has already shifted some of its production capacity to home appliances as a way to preserve smart phone factory workers' jobs, and the remaining phone line workers will be reassigned by the end of July.

It is worth noting that the factory was established in Haiphong in 2015 to manufacture televisions, cell phones and devices in general. Sister companies LG Innotek and LG Display are making camera and screen modules there.

LG was supposed to sell a limited number of LG Velvet 2 Pro foldable phones (around 3,000 units) to employees, however, that didn't go as planned.
