Last week, we heard of LG’s intentions to introduce a new high end smartphone lineup, positioned even higher than the G series. A new report from today seems to suggest that this handset will be known as the ‘LG G Note‘. This is no surprise given the liberal use of the Note moniker by OEMs all over the globe. It was Samsung who originally sparked off this trend with the Galaxy Note back in 2011 and the company hasn’t looked back since then.
Giving credence to this new report is the fact that the company recently filed a trademark for the name. Industry sources have mentioned that the smartphone will have a price tag of 1,000,000 Korean Won which is about $890 in American currency. As we all know, LG isn’t new to the phablet segment as the company has unveiled two high end phablets in the form of the G Pro and the G Pro 2 in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
It’s still not known if the G Note will be sold simultaneously along with the LG G4 or if it will replace the G series altogether. Given the popularity of the G2 and the G3 over the past two years, it seems unlikely that the company would ditch the lineup.
