LG could launch an "Icon" smartphone and an "Iconic" smartwatch
Last week, we heard that LG was considering rebranding its G series of flagship phones. However, this might not happen with this year's flagship, as new reports are suggesting that the handset will be called LG G7 - just as expected, since it's succeeding the G6 of 2017. Nevertheless, LG has already thought about some new smartphone names, and while it may not use these anytime soon, it made sure to trademark some of them.
According to the database of USPTO (the United States Patent and Trademark Office), this month, LG filed trademarks for the following smartphone names: LG Icon, LG Aicon, and LG Aiconn.
Of course, companies often trademark product names without using them. To us, though, LG Icon sounds like a good name for a future high-end smartphone. But it remains to be seen if we'll actually have a handset with this name on the market.
Interestingly, LG also filed to trademark the name LG Iconic - for a smartwach. This, too, sounds like a pretty cool name for a high-end device. The Icon smartphone and the Iconic smartwatch could very well be part of a next-gen LG family of mobile devices, though we're merely speculating here.
What do you think about these possible names for LG's future mobile products?
P.S.: Pictured above is the LG V30 Signature Edition, a smartphone that's (sadly) only available in South Korea.
