LG today announced that it will continue to issue Android operating system updates for three years for its premium phones, and two years for its lower-end phones. The pledge follows the news earlier this week that LG will stop making phones by mid-year. For premium phones, LG's commitment is "up to three iterations of Android operating system updates from the year of purchase". This applies to G series and V series phones released in 2019 and later, as well as the Velvet and Wing. Lower-end models include the K series and Stylo phones released in 2020 "will receive two OS updates".

I read somewhere on another phone related website that the OS updates for the specified timeframes were geared mainly for the Korean variants only. Is this true?
I don't think that's accurate. LG issued that press release in Korea, then a few hours later issued it again but in the US. Also, their US PR people reached out to me to make sure I saw it. They wouldn't do that if it didn't apply to the US market.
