LG G3 name to be trademarked with the USPTO

LG G3 name to be trademarked with the USPTO
Expected to be one of the main rivals of Samsung’s Galaxy S5, LG's rumored G3 smartphone will likely not be released in the coming months. Instead, we’re hearing that LG plans to introduce the new high-end handset as early as May. Until then, the South Korean company is looking to trademark the G3 name.

A trademark application was filed with the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) this month, clearly relating the G3 name to “mobile phones.” Usually, trademark applications are reviewed by the USPTO “approximately 3 months after the filing date”, so we assume that LG will have full rights over the G3 name starting May.

Coming as the successor to the well-received LG G2, the G3 might become LG’s first smartphone to use a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display. The screen could measure 5.5 inches, this giving it an incredible 534 ppi density. The new smartphone may also feature an LG-made octa-core 64-bit processor, and 3GB of RAM.

Later this month, LG should officially announce a G2 mini and a new G Pro 2. The latter will have a rear camera with enhanced OIS+ technology, and we're expecting this to be among the features of the G3 as well.

I think LG will gain a lot of customers from Samsung this year! We'll see what they can do!

I switched from Samsung because G2 is so awesome. I'm not planning on going back if they continue with such a good phones. But again, removable battery, SD card or UI means nothing to me.

I wanted an LG G2 but I also wanted an SD card. So Samsung won.

I never ran the LG software on my G2 for more than 2 minutes but I really love my G2. Development is really coming around and it's a great device to own. I don't even notice the back buttons any more they bothered me for about a month though. I pull 5-6 hours of on screen time for battery the thing is a monster.

Please stop calling a 5,5" device a smartphone. It's simply a "phablet". The development is really getting ridiculous. To enable QHD resolution (which nobody really needs on a phone) they have to go with bigger displays. I know that there is a market for such big devices, but please consider dear manufacturers that there are also people not liking the trend of bigger getting screens. If you release such a big phone, then release a smaller sibling with same specs (despite display) too. kindly regards, a consumer.

Put the buttons back on the side and build it as well as they did the original LG Optimus G and I might buy it. In fact, I am open to any flagship except HTC because I got burnt by them so many times before.

Agreed. Back buttons are hideous.

I used to hate the back buttons, but now I like NOT having them on the side. I wish though they were moved from the center to either the right or left. Some LG apps have a hidden volume slider on the screen, that's not so bad.

If it's 5.5 though then that's too big even with no bezels.

I hope they significantly improve the build quality from the G2. This can be a real hit.
