The LG V series isn’t going anywhere anytime soon

The LG V series isn’t going anywhere anytime soon as LG has reserved the rights to the ninth – or eleventh, if you factor in the V30S ThinQ and V35 ThinQ – instalment in the range.

LetsGoDigital reports that LG has trademarked the LG V90 with the Instituto Mexicano de la Propiedad Industrial in Mexico, confirming it no intention of scrapping the once-second-screen-clad V series in the near future.

Based on the firm’s current release schedule (below), the LG V90 will hit the shelves sometime in 2023, after the V40, V50, V60, V70 and V80 all run their course – with the former tipped to launch this year.

  • LG V10 – September 2015
  • LG V20 – September 2016
  • LG V30 – August 2017
  • LG V30S ThinQ – February 2018
  • LG V35 ThinQ – June 2018

The LG V40, according to recent rumours, will come with a total of five cameras – three on the back and two on the front –, a Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 845 CPU and at least 6GB of RAM.

Competitor Huawei made a similar move earlier this month, trademarking the next eight iterations of its high-end, feature-packed Mate range, ranging from the Mate 20 right up to the Mate 90.
