LG Plans To Patent The Name Of LG G2 Successor

February 12, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

Mobile World Congress is fast approaching, with the 24th only 11 days away. Plenty of handsets could make their debut at the show in Barcelona, but most notably we should get to see and hear about the Galaxy S 5. One device that we won’t be getting the unveiling for is the next in line from LG, which is the successor to the LG G2, better known as the G3. With the alleged plan from the Korean manufacturer being a post-April/may launch, we won’t be getting our hands on the device any time soon. While it’ll be a bit of a wait on the next flagship from LG, they’re apparently taking to the USPTO to patent the G3 name to get things in the name department finalized. The Patent trademark was spotted having been filed this month, and since the filings are usually reviewed after a three month period, LG’s rights to the full trademark of the the G3 name should fall in line with when they are rumored to launch the device.

The G3 is rumored to have some impressive specs on board, ranging from 3GB of RAM to a potentially Quad HD display, which would be LG’s first smartphone with that particular screen quality. There are also rumors of the device sporting an octa-core processor. It’s also rumored to have almost no bezels, and potentially come with a 16MP rear camera sporting OIS features. These are leaked speculations of the rumors, but LG would have a contender on their hands if these features and specs would pan out. We would expect that the once the G3 launches, it would come with Android 4.4 Kit Kat out of the box, but so far there’s no confirmation on what version of the OS it’ll be running once released. Naturally, we’d like to see the G3 come with the same self healing technology on the back as the G Flex, which would only seem fitting for their future high end phones to have. Although this patent filing to trademark the G3 name is just that, a patent filing, expect more information to surface about the device surrounding the trademark and what we can expect out of the device. Do you currently use a G2? Will you be upgrading to a G3 when it launches?
