LG has registered the brand 'G3'. It confirms the willingness of LG to continue the branding convention – applied for the G2 – for the next-flagship smartphone.
LG’s G3, the successor of G2 seems to have confirmed, and maybe the Korean company will be launching the phone sooner than expected.
LG Electronics has registered the trademark ‘G3’ under ‘mobile phones’ category at the United States Patents and Trademarks Office (USPTO), which confirms the next-flagship phone will be branded as the G3.
LG applied for a trademark for ‘G3’ on February 5, signaling the phone maker may be moving ahead with plans for the successor of the G2, even though the G Pro 2 seems certain to come before on February 13th.
According to previous rumors, the G3 will be a true Galaxy S5 Killer in terms of hardware specifications. It’s likely to feature a 5.5-inch QHD or 2K display with 256 x 1440 pixels, a 16-megapixel camera – capable of 4K video recording – with optical image stabilization, a fingerprint sensor and in-house built octo-core processor codenamed “Odin” rather than a Qualcomm chipset.
The phone is rumored to arrive by the end of May or early June. However, there’s no official confirmation, but we will find more in coming months.
