LG Electronics looks to be working on yet another smartphone under the popular V-series as its Mexico division recently filed a trademark for the rights of the term “LG V90”. According to LetsGoDigital, the trademark was filed at the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) on July 13 and indicates terms related to smartphones and telecommunications, thus revealing that the V90 is indeed a handset.
Earlier the week, we came to witness reports of the upcoming V40 ThinQ device which is expected to come with five camera sensors in total for launch slated for September. What’s surprising is that while the LG V90 has been trademarked, the V40 ThinQ, which is about to arrive later this year, hasn’t secured any paperwork on its name.
If the V90 hadn’t popped up recently, it might have been a few years will the V-series would have welcomed the same since we’re only stuck with the V35 ThinQ for now. Alternatively, this could also mean that the trademark has been filed by some other company other than South Korea’s LG, which would explain why the trademark was initiated in Mexico.
There’s another possibility that that latest report could be totally unrelated to smartphones and maybe LG is working on a non-smartphone device with the name V90. Since this is a class 9 product as the trademark revealed, it means, the V90 could be anything from a Smart TV, headphone, or as simple as a smartphone battery.
What’s sooner to expect is the LG V40 ThinQ which could be unveiled at the IFA 2018 event in Berlin on August 31. To start with, LG V40 ThinQ will feature triple cameras on the rear panel. The setup is expected to include 20-megapixel, 16-megapixel and 13-megapixel sensors. Further, the phone is expected to feature an OLED screen with a notched display, however, the screen-to-body ratio will be more than 90 per cent.
