LG recently dropped the ‘Optimus’ branding from their premium device lineup and decided to simply go with the letter ‘G.” LG noted its ‘vision is to make LG’s newest G devices synonymous with excellence, raising the bar even further for the ultimate in user experience.”
The first product to sport this will the be the LG G2 – a powerful Android with back volume buttons, 5.2-inch 1080p IPS display, 2.3Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and a 13MP camera. However, it seems that LG is protecting every possible device name for future launches. According to a filing with the KIPO (Korean Intellectual Property Office), LG has filed for trademarks for the GPAD, G Watch, G Glass, G Link, G Band and the G Hub.
All the trademarks were filed on July 8th and is a good indication that LG is working on another tablet (GPAD), possibly a smartwatch (G Watch), a GoogleGlass competitor with G Glass, and the G Band could be the Smart Activity Tracker we saw at CES earlier this year.
Perhaps these may never see the light of day, but here’s hoping that one or all appear at the G2 unveiling in New York on August 7th.
