LG has just submitted a trademark application for a new smartphone called the LG M10. The South-Korean company is not new to smartphone manufacture but the “M” series is definitely new.
Just last month, LG announced the “W” series in the Indian market. This series includes the LG W10, LG W30, and LG W30 Pro. Could this “M10” be LG starting a new series of smartphones?
The trademark “M10” was filed at the Korean Intellectual Property Office on 8th July, under the Smartphones category. Now, this may work in two ways. The M10 may be either a new line or just a new name for an older phone in LG’s home country.
LG is not new to having a single device with multiple names based on the country. The LG Q60, for example, is known as the LG X6 in Korea and LG K12 Prime in Brazil.
This idea of the M10 being a new name for an existing phone is just speculation, however. LG could actually be starting up a totally different series.
Asides the M10, LG has also applied for trademarks for V60 and V70. Obviously, these will be additions to the already-existing V series. The latest in the series is the LG V50 ThinQ which was launched earlier this year, a few months after the launch of the LG G8 flagship.
So, will we get the LG V60 ThinQ this year or next year? Let us just wait and see, and hope LG does not disappoint.
