Before making a decision on the care of the smartphone market, LG worked on two models capable of claiming flagship positions in global ratings. According to some data, although these smartphones will not go to the stores, they will be able to purchase some employees of the LG itself.
It is known that the LG Rainbow flagship (LG Velvet 2 Pro) and a smartphone with a folding LG ROLLABLE display are preparing. According to Insider FRONTRON, which last month published photos of both models, in LG there was a limited sale – employees were going to sell 3,000 LG Rainbow pieces and an unknown number of LG ROLLABLE. Nevertheless, the manufacturer has postponed the event “due to the high popularity” of smartphones.
Taking into account the fact that the manufacturer was going to sell LG Rainbow at $ 176, the demand for smartphones is not difficult to explain. It was assumed that the model would be equipped with a 6.8-inch OLED display with a full HD + resolution and a 120 Hz screen update frequency, the flagship processor SNAPDRAGON 888, 8 GB of operational and 128 GB of permanent memory and a battery with 4500 mA · h.
According to an insider, new items will be sold only by the employees of the Korean division LG, 2 copies in one hands. Expansion of warranty support from 6 to 24 months, and software updates is not planned. At the same time, the resale is categorically prohibited, but these collectors can expect that some smartphones will still fall on eBay or other trading platforms.
