While a decision is being made about the future of LG’s smartphone business, the brand has reportedly paused development of the LG Rollable. Now, a new report claims that LG has also hit the brakes on its mainstream flagship.
The high-end device was originally supposed to be released this month as a replacement for the LG V60 ThinQ and the LG Velvet, but the person says that its release has now been postponed indefinitely because the future of LG’s smartphone business is uncertain.
For those wondering, the LG Rainbow was expected to offer Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888. Rumor had it that it would also offer stylus support, suggesting that LG wanted to fill the void left by Samsung’s Galaxy Note series.
The LG Rainbow, potentially one of the best Android phones in 2021, would also have been the second smartphone in the new “Universal Line”. So, in terms of design, it should not be too different from what we saw with the LG Velvet in 2020.
Once LG decides on the fate or direction of its sluggish smartphone business, it could go ahead with the launch of the LG Rainbow. But for now, that’s unlikely to happen. We contacted LG for comment on the matter and the company declined to comment.
