The never-before-seen flagship, the LG Rainbow, is being sold to LG employees



Twitter found a new leak Android Authority, reveals amazing news about LG’s supposedly dug flagship Velvet a line we never expected to see in daylight.

It had been everyone’s surprise when LG suddenly announced closing its mobile department last month after unveiling strong smartphone competition for nearly twelve years.
The business had been declining for some time, and while LG was working hard on a number of future flagships – namely the LG Rainbow and LG Rollable—After the shutdown notice, it was hardly reasonable to expect to ever see anything else of them.

The blue Twitter leak from Tipster @FrontTron shows that this may not be the case, although we really wouldn’t hope for our hopes when we get our hands on one of these mysterious phones.

It seems that LG has really been able to design and manufacture 3,000 Velvet 2 Pro (also known as LG Rainbow) units and sell them only to employees of the South Korean company.

If the leak is to be relied upon, these limited units are available to workers in the colors Black, Bronze and Ivory (although only Ivory is shown). LG employees can buy up to two Rainbow phones per person, but they can also wait for factory repair services that last about 6 months or “as long as there are enough parts.”

The LG Rainbow doesn’t get any software updates, so it stays the same and uses Android 11 for the rest of its life. The phone costs about $ 170 – from this perspective last year Velvet 5G may be at this time fetched for $ 280 (it is also expected to live on in the future of Android 13).
Employees who buy Rainbow are not allowed to resell, which means that unless one of them leaks more information about your smartphone, it’s likely to be closed to us forever.

If LG had kept its mobile phone business for just a year, we could have seen these phones in the mainstream. The LG Rainbow certainly has a visual wow factor judging by the leak. The Ivory version has, as you can see, a sleek and glossy ivory body with a thin golden border around the edges. Fancy, right? The shape and design of the camera look almost similar to the year old LG Velvet.

While we don’t have details on Rainbow’s specifications, we do know that the physical volume and home buttons have been driven in favor of pressure-sensitive touch sensors. LG has always been one of those weird innovative smartphone brands, and it would have been fun to see how such a phone feels.
