A new report from Korean outlet Chosun claims that LG has shelved its V60 successor indefinitely.
LG was to begin testing the phone, codenamed Rainbow, in late February with an eye toward a market launch in March. The company has reportedly halted communications with local carriers regarding the release of the Rainbow.
LG’s Rainbow phone is rumored to be a traditional-looking smartphone as opposed to the Explorer Project roll-up phone (which LG demonstrated at CES), which is expected in 2021. Rumors indicate that the Rainbow is the LG V70 with a Snapdragon 888 chipset and support for a stylus.
This is not the first Korean report about an LG phone that has been put on hold. Yonhap reported that LG has put its rollable phone on hold, a report that was then officially denied.
Earlier reports stated that LG is looking for a buyer for its burgeoning smartphone branch. Turbulent times at LG Mobile, indeed.
