G3 Lite, G3 Vigor, G3 Vista and G3 Beat are new smartphone names that LG wants to trademark
Just a few days ago, we told you that LG may plan to release a mini version of its G3 that should be called LG G3 Beat (at least in China). The South Korean company is serious about this name, as we discovered that it wants to trademark it. Alongside G3 Beat, other three new names are waiting to be trademarked in the US: G3 Lite, G3 Vigor, and G3 Vista.

G3 Lite may be an alternative name for the mini G3, while G3 Vista could have something to do with Verizon (since we recently saw an LG G Vista that’s reportedly headed to Verizon). We’re not sure what the G3 Vigor is supposed to be.

Of course, LG hasn’t confirmed the existence of a mini G3, but we assume it will do it in the near future - when we’ll probably find out what’s with all these new names that the company seemingly intends to use.

Meanwhile, the original 5.5-inch LG G3 is now being released around the world, and it will be available in the US starting this month, via all major mobile carriers.

Why doesn't one of these companies differentiate based on size instead of specs? They should have the LG Small, Medium, and Large with top end specs but just different sizes based on people's preferences.

Sony seems to be the only company that differentiates based on size. Their Sony Xperia z1 compact had the same specs as the larger Xperia Z1. Unfortunately, they don't seem to care about the U.S. market since we rarely get official releases of their phones.

I'm an LG fan. I didn't quit life as you say. And while I'm not the biggest Samsung supporter I will say they do have some good handsets. Still in love with my S3 right alongside my G2. But if you really want to be honest, LG has been making variants of its devices for about as long as Samsung has so I don't see any copying. I also think it's funny that Samsung fans are calling another company a copy cat while being Samsung fanboys. That's the true meaning of irony. Especially since Samsung is just copying Nokia's old model when it came to their Symbian devices and they made variant after variant of the same device.
