Is LG readying new smartphones named G Chocolate, G Black and G Plus?
LG recently filed several patent applications for new names that may be used to designate upcoming smartphones. The names that we’ve discovered are: LG G Chocolate, LG G Black, LG G Black Slim, LG G Black Sound, and LG G Plus. All trademarks cover a wide range of products, starting with mobile phones, and including tablets and wearables.

Years ago, LG had a Black Label Series of phones, which included handsets like the LG Chocolate, LG Shine, LG Secret, and LG New Chocolate BL40 (pictured on the left). Thus, we assume that at least G Chocolate and G Black are intended to be used as smartphone names. Of course, not all names that companies seek to trademark get to be used for real products. But the monikers mentioned above are certainly in line with a few names of recently-released LG smartphones (like LG G Vista, or LG G Pro).

Last quarter, LG sold a record 16.8 million smartphones (obviously helped by the success of its G3 flagship), so this looks to be a great time for some new handsets, isn’t it?

LG and Samsung seem to be competing to see who can make the most smartphone variants

When are they releasing the lg g pro successor? Thats the big one right? But lg should also put their mid and low range phones to a competitive price point. Look at whats happening to sony and htc.

G Pro 2 came early 2014 :p If you mean when G Pro 3 is comming I assume early 2015, most likely right when SD810 is available.

2015: "LG, like Sony and Samsung before it, got excited and loses money for making too many smartphones that no one buys"

I remember my sister had the chocolate flip, one of the sexiest phones ever imo. The new LG Chocolate should be all black with red capacitive buttons thin! I had the LG Fusic, I hope they remake that phone and/or the muziq and the new ones should be a music centered phone with front facing speakers, phisycal music button (or at least a customizable button).

LG in the last couple of years has put more care and design into their smartphones.

I always said if the cared as much about smartphones in this day and age as the used to about basic phones back in the day, they'd have something special. Looks like that time has come...

The Lg chocolate was my first touch pad phone, I really loved the design, I hope LG is working on a new version of that Classic
