LG receives trademark protection for its flagship phones' names through 2020

LG receives trademark protection for its flagship phones' names through 2020
LG apparently expects to continue using the LG Gx moniker for its future flagship handsets. The company filed with the USPTO for trademarks covering the LG G3, LG G4, LG G5, LG G6, LG G7, LG G8 and the LG G9 names last August. Now, LG has received USPTO protection for the trademarks covering all of the names it filed for. If LG continues to use the same naming process for its flagship model, it is now covered through 2020. By the time 2021 comes around, the manufacturer might have a better idea than simply calling its new handset the LG G10.

Obviously, the LG G3 has already been produced and is the current flagship phone from LG. During the summer, we are looking forward to seeing the LG G4 introduced.

Originally, LG's top-shelf handsets were all part of the LG Optimus line. In the summer of 2013, LG decided to have all of its high-end devices carry the letter "G" to signify their status among LG handsets. Thus, the LG G2 was born. The previous flagship models were the LG Optimus G and the LG Optimus G Pro

It would be cooler if they used Roman Numerals (until they get to XVIII, which is quite a handful).

LG naming their models like this is much better than Samsung and locally branded phones with funny names. It's more easy to follow a product's development and easier recall for the consumers. When you mention Samsung, people will only remember the 'S' and 'Note' Series, rest of A to J will be forgotten.

Because LG L90 L9, LG Volt, LG Triumph, LG Ice Cream Smart and LG Stylus aren't too far fetched.....
