A good product should speak for itself, but the name also plays an important role. Ilon Mask will confirm. That LG after the failures of smartphones G-series decided to rebrand the flagship line.
According to the company's representatives, various options are being considered now. In the commercial name of the conditional LG G7 , a two-digit index can be used, or the company will choose a completely different designation - the final decision has not yet been taken. As experts note, one of the reasons for rebranding is the lower order number of LG smartphones compared to the flagships of the main competitors. To some, the LG G6 might seem outdated against the backdrop of the Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 7, although this is not at all the case.
Manufacturers of smartphones often change the system names of their devices. At one time, Samsung equalized the top line of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note, so that the models of the same season had the same indices. In addition, in the fall after the iPhone 8, the "tenth" iPhone X, named in honor of the anniversary of the release of the first smartphone Apple, went on sale right away.
When the announcement?
Two previous flagship LG were presented at the exhibition Mobile World Congress, and smartphone sales started in March. Most likely, the manufacturer will not change the traditions. At the MWC 2018 is also expected to premiere Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 +.
Leave in the comments of their ideas the names of new items. We will help LG with everything we can.
