The LG V60 ThinQ was released right about a year ago. Sadly, it appears fans of the lineup will not be getting an LG V70—or a successor at all—anytime soon, with LG reportedly halting all plans for such a device. That is likely down to the current uncertainty around the future of LG's mobile division.

LG's mobile business continues to stutter. Following reports of the company being set to sell its mobile arm a while ago, it appears that the South Korean giants have now temporarily halted plans for the release of an LG V70 that would normally succeed the LG V60.

The LG V60 was released a year ago, in March 2020. A direct successor, the V70, would typically be released right around now, but LG doesn't seem to have any such intentions. According to South Korean media, LG has now halted development for the V70, a project originally said to be codenamed "Rainbow".

Supposedly, LG should've begun field testing for the V60's successor in February, with a launch to follow in March. All of those plans were canceled, however—likely due to the uncertainty around the future of LG's mobile division. It's safe to say that at the moment, the company has no plans of releasing a successor to the LG V60. That's a shame, as while the LG V60 has some shortcomings, it offered a solid value proposition, with enthusiast-focused features like a Quad DAC-equipped 3.5mm headphone jack and expandable storage.
