LG "Q Note" trademark suggests smartphone with stylus could be in the works
by Joshua Swingle / Apr 30, 2018, 8:33 AM
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.

So being that the Q6 was VERY similar to the LG Stylo 3 Plus on the spec sheet; minus the stylus, and fingerprint scanner, but with a 2:1 screen ratio. I wonder if the Q Note will be the new name for the LG Stylo 4 being that the specs have already been leaked on the Q7?

I'm surprised it's taken this long for another smartphone maker to release a Samsung Note competitor.

Probably it's because contract between Wacom and Samsung. Samsung will keep buying millions of digitizers from Wacom, in exchange Wacom shouldn't sell it's digitizer to other phone manufacturers.. Or probably it's just because patent.

If this device has not a digital, embedded pen, it has nothing to do with the Note category. I can't understand, how the tech media don't know that?! S Pen on Note is not only for jotting, and if it's not embedded is a pain to carry it, and easy to be lost.

Why do people always bring up "copying" as a negative thing? First popular mass-produced car was a Model T. Had other manufacturers not "copied", we would all be driving a Model T or something else from Ford right now. Aren't you glad other manufacturers "copied" and you have more choices now? Why see it as a bad thing for phones then?
