LG trademarks new X-series devices in Korea – what could an 'X Suit' be?


LG's had a busy 2016 so far, with the company introducing its flagship LG G5 smartphone, the 'Friends' accessories, and the more affordable 'X' and 'K' series. Apparently, next on LG's to-do list is expanding the 'X' line-up with four new devices – the 'X Suit', 'X Skin', 'X Classic', and 'X Slim'. The company trademarked them in homeland South Korea late last week, which means they are being primed for release not too late from now on.

Other than their potential names, there's no intel on any of LG's new phones. But the names do suggest a variety in designs, sizes, and possibly other aspects of theirs. It's also perfectly possible that some of these devices aren't phones, but rather accessories.

LG's X series, which so far consists of the LG X Screen and LG X Cam (pictured in the article), was demoed at MWC 2016 in Barcelona this February before launching in South Korea and gradually reaching other key LG markets, including Europe, Latin America, and Asia. It looks like LG will be keeping these out of the North American market for now. They are mid-range devices that offer key pieces of technology from LG's flagship phones – the secondary 'ticker' screen from the LG V10 (found on LG X Screen) and the dual camera setup from the LG G5 (found on the LG X Cam) – at more affordable cost.

I can't help but laugh the desperation that LG does, making the new X variant to replace the failure G variant will not recover LG past horrible reputation on customer services and it's comical.

What's comical is your incessant babbling about how "great" Samsung is Richard. You're really swinging hard from Sammy's n*ts. How a grown man can't understand that people have other preferences on mobile besides Samsung is beyond me. Give it a rest and go troll elsewhere.

Can you read? He didnt say anything about Samsung. He said - " can't help but laugh the desperation that LG does, making the new X variant to replace the failure G variant will not recover LG past horrible reputation on customer services and it's comical." He ios right. LG has had terrible customer service. Will give a personal example.One of our employees had a LG Evolution. For some reason it would simply shut off when the phone charged too 100%. It would refuse to turn back on, until the battery fell to 99% or less. I kid you not. She called LG and explained the issue and we were looking to have an out of warranty repair. We shipped them the phone. We didnt see the phone for 4 weeks. We tried calling them for an update/ Nothing. They also didn't call us or return any calls. We email support with our ticket number. No response. After 4 weeks the phone was returned with a slip inside said the repair was complete and we were not charged. So we charged up the phone and as soon as it hit 100% it shutoff instantly. Same problem, wasn't repaired. We all did some digging. Same serial number, same damage to device as far as scuffs and everything. They had the phone for nearly a month before they shipped it back. What happened with the repair? We called and we couldn't get an answer and then they asked us to ship the phone again and they provided a shipping label this time. We said no. She took the phone and traded it for an S6 Edge+. We never had an issue like this with Apple or Samsung. They both have very expensive phones, but they treat all their customers equally.

Can I read? Don't be a d*ck Techie. I'm not the one you want to tangle with. And you must be oblivious to the antics of Richard Yarrel who trolls anything that isn't Samsung. All he does is out down other OEM's. For every story you give about a bad experience with an LG device, there are a dozen more about bad experiences with Samsung and Apple. Including my own.

I agree, don't like Samsung and never will, Apple is just as boring. Time for LG,Huawei and other OEMS to take the plate, which Huawei has already done so good at.

X cam, weird looking phone and not in a good way. I guess its the same team who design G5.

Hmmm, LG only amazes me with their Flagship devices, but that also applies to HTC and Sony. Whereas Samsung, Huawei and Motorola has great value for money.

LG G3 not bad, and G5 not Crap. G5 has a better sales than G4 every day to sell 8,000 devices on the domestic market . notebookcheck.net/LG-selling-8-000-G5-flagships-a-​day-in-Korea.164247.0.html

You know i think if LG had reproduced the G4 aesthetics with the SD820 and called it G5, it would receive warmer welcomes. BTW where has the G flex line gone!?

Keep up the great work LG, love the new design changes, something Samsung lacks in. Huawei P9 is already what I'm buying so not gonna buy any LG phone at the moment but will always look at what's new from LG.
