LG patents the names of its flagship smartphones through 2020


Surely, many a month will pass until we hear the first round of rumors and speculations regarding LG's next flagship smartphone, the LG G4, as the G3 is still relatively hot out of the oven. How do we know that it will be called the G4, some of you may ask. A spot-on question, indeed! Well, for starters, it comes pretty close to mind that LG won't change horses in the middle of the stream, but we have something something to prove our words with, too. It appears that LG has just filed a patent application for the LG G4 name in its home country, which is a clear indication that there will be absolutely no surprises regarding the name of LG's next flagship.

What's more, the tech giant has also made sure that no one will be legally able to make an LG G5, LG G6, LG G7, LG G8, and LG G9-named device up until 2020, as it has filed trademark applications for these device monikers as well. Thus, it's more than obvious that LG is not going to re-brand its flagship smartphone line of devices, as it has already made a name on the market. Or as the saying goes, “never change a winning team”.

The pioneer of the G line was no other than 2012's LG Optimus G, followed by the LG G2 a year later. This year's representative of the G series, the popular LG G3, is universally lauded as being one of the best and most important smartphones of 2014 so far. That said, it will be more than interesting to see how the LG G4 will try to woo us with in 2015.

Any thoughts?
