LG's last flagship smartphone has reached the Google Play Console. The Velvet 2 Pro, codenamed the LG Rainbow, has some bleeding-edge hardware and would have been an excellent upgrade on last year's LG Velvet.

The Velvet 2 Pro may not be LG's swansong, but it has appeared on the Google Play Console. The listing only shows one render of the device, but it contains multiple specifications and details.

On the one hand, the listing confirms that the Velvet 2 Pro is the LG Rainbow, a codename that appeared in multiple leaks over the last few months. On the other hand, the listing reinforces that the Velvet 2 Pro contains flagship hardware, as past leaks have suggested.

Specifically, LG has equipped the Velvet 2 Pro with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, identifiable from its CPU core arrangement and its GPU. Additionally, the handset has 8 GB of RAM and a curved display. The Google Play Console reports that LG has opted for a 2,400 x 1,080-pixel panel; LG has not used 1440p panels since 2019 with the G8 ThinQ and V50 ThinQ.

According to @FrontTron, LG has finished selecting people to receive a Velvet 2 Pro. The South Korean company charged a nominal KRW 190,000 (~US$170) for LG Korea employees, who could buy up to two units each. Apparently, LG has manufactured 3,000 units.
