G Prime, F Prime, L Prime, and W Prime may be future LG smartphones

LG recently filed four trademark applications for names that include the term "Prime" - which is also seen in the tentative monikers of Samsung’s Galaxy S5 Prime and HTC’s allegedly canceled One M8 Prime. The names that LG intends to trademark are: G Prime, F Prime, L Prime, and W Prime. All applications are related to smartphones, and were filed with the USPTO several days ago, on June 3.
While we’ve no idea if these names will ever be used to designate real devices, there is a certain logic behind them. LG currently has a G series of smartphones (including the latest G3), an F series (including the F90 and F70), and an L series (L90, L70, etc). What about the W, then? Well, this one may be reserved for a brand new Windows Phone 8.1 handset.
Of course, it’s hard to imagine that in the near future LG could, for example, launch a G Prime that’s more advanced than the G3 already is. But, in the long run, this could definitely happen. We’ll keep an eye on this, and let you know when more details are available.

The "mini? craze has gone, time to saturate the market with "prime" tag.

This is why one must hate Asian brands (apart from Sony). They are all such copycats! There is a fashion and they follow immediately. Samsung announces a mini phone, everyone has to jump immediately on the train (but Sony is the only one to do it properly and eschew the pejorative Mini name); iPhone comes in gold, suddenly HTC, Samsung and LG, together with a troop of Chinese manufacturers, have to have golden phones. Now the Galaxy S5 Prime is just a rumour and already LG is trying to trademark similar name. If one wants some class and originality, there is only Apple, Sony and Nokia.

The scheme would work better if they used actual prime numbers for each new release: LG G3, G5, G7, G11, G13, G17, G19, G23..., G103, etc. LG F3, F5, F7, F11, F13, F17, F19, F23..., F103, etc. (etc)
