The new trademark suggest a smartphone competing with the yet to be announced Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
Last year, South Korean manufacturer tried its hand in making a stylus device called LG Stylo 3 Plus. Now according to a new report, the company is aiming for a similar device called the “Q Note” this year. This piece of information comes from a new trademark filing with the Korean Intellectual property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS) which was registered on April 9, 2018. The trademark has been classified as the Cat 9 which includes smartphones, telephone displays, batteries, TV receivers and wireless headsets.
The company started its Q line series of smartphones last year with the launch of LG Q6 and LG Q8. The smartphones were placed in mid-range segment and were fairly popular. The next in line Q7 is surrounded by rumours and speculations and is expected to launch in the upcoming weeks. The new trademark hints that the company may be working on an expanded range of devices which includes the new Q7 Note name. This will make the device an unofficial successor to the last years Stylo 3 Plus and will likely to be placed in the same mid-range pricing segment.
Currently, there isn’t any official images or details about the internal specs, though it’s expected to adopt an 18:9 aspect ratio display and take design cues from the LG G7 ThinQ flagship which will be unveiled on May 2 which pushes the Q7 launch towards the end of May or early June. The Q7 may also adopt the “ThinQ branding”.
The Q7 Note will be joining the list of LG Stylus smartphones from the past like LG G3 Stylus (2014), G Stylo (2015), G4 Stylus (2015), Stylus 2 (2016), Stylo 2 (2016) and will be competing with the Galaxy Note 9 which is rumoured to come with a S-Pen.
