LG "Q Note" trademark suggests smartphone with stylus could be in the works
LG could be preparing a new stylus-equipped smartphone according to a new trademark filing. The South Korean company’s last attempt at a device featuring a stylus came nearly one year ago, with the launch of the LG Stylo 3 Plus. According to a trademark for the “Q Note” name by the company, however, it appears LG could be readying another stylus-equipped device.

Currently, the LG Q line of devices is relatively new, with the company introducing its first series of smartphones last year, in the form of the LG Q6 and Q8. These acted as the company’s mid-range offerings throughout the year and are understood to have been relatively well received. With the rumored LG Q7 just around the corner, though, the new trademark suggests the company could be working on an expanded range of devices in 2018, one of which could feature the Q7 Note name. If this is the case, the new smartphone would most likely act as a spiritual successor to 2017’s Stylo 3 Plus and would continue to be positioned in the mid-range pricing bracket.

In terms of design and release, details are yet to be confirmed, but the device will most likely adopt the 18:9 display aspect ratio and should resemble the company’s upcoming G7 ThinQ flagship. Regarding a release, LG will be unveiling its next high-end smartphone on May 2, but the Q7 line of devices will likely make an appearance later on in the month, with a possible release date happening towards the beginning of June. In any case, though, it will remain to be seen if the company’s next mid-range offering also boasts the “ThinQ” branding.
