LG has announced the end of its smartphone production

LG has taken a significant step toward closing its mobile division. According to Asia Business Daily, the last LG phones have gone off the assembly line, and the business will stop producing devices after Monday. Engadget has approached LG for comment.

Early in April, the company revealed plans to phase out its phone business, although it continued to produce handsets for a few more months to meet contracts with telecom carriers. According to Asia Business Daily, a factory in Vietnam that made many of LG’s smartphones would be turned into a home appliance manufacturing facility.

LG has announced that it will close its unsuccessful mobile business by the end of July, even though it may still sell certain products after that date. LG phones will continue to receive Android operating system updates for up to three years after purchase. From the date of manufacture, the company will also provide four years of after-sales service. Meanwhile, the business has sold a limited number of the unannounced Velvet 2 Pro and LG Rollable, which were shown off at CES in January, to its South Korean employees.
