LG may have announced the end of its smartphone division, but two curious entries for what would have been flagship devices have appeared online. It seems unlikely that LG will release any more smartphones before it finishes winding down its mobile business by July 31 though, unfortunately.
Nonetheless, the AI Benchmark confirms that LG was developing the V70 with a Snapdragon 888 SoC. Additionally, the website reports that the device has 8 GB of RAM and Android 11, but it has provided no other details beyond that. Presumably, the V70 would have been another hefty smartphone with a large battery, as the V60 ThinQ is.
Additionally, @FrontTron has discovered that LG certified the Rollable with the National Radio Research Agency (NRRA) in South Korea. The NRRA listing reports that the Rollable has the model number LM-R910N, which showed up last month at the Bluetooth SIG. It seems that LG has certified the Rollable with the NRRA twice, but we can only find the earlier listing.
Regardless, the first listing contains a photo of the Rollable, albeit only one. It looks like the Rollable is about 170 mm tall and 80 mm wide when closed, which would make it slightly larger than last year's V60 ThinQ. @FrontTron claims that LG will only distribute the Rollable to senior executives, although the NRRA registration suggests that LG had almost finished developing the device.
While the V70 and Rollable may never come to market, the V60 ThinQ (affiliate link) remains purchasable on Amazon. LG insists that it will continue to provide software support for existing smartphones, such as the V60 ThinQ, so the device should receive Android 11, if not Android 12 too.
