As it turns out, the rumors surrounding the upcoming plethora of foldable smartphones are not going to stop popping out anytime soon. Not too long ago, we got to know Huawei’s upcoming foldable smartphones and now, LG is also reportedly joining in.
As per the recent report by Letsgodigital, the company has filed the patents for the following smartphones:
LG Bendi, Solid, Solides, XF, and XB
On 21 November 2018, the same day that the other three trademark applications were submitted, LG Electronics also registered five brand names. These were published a day later. The names are LG Bendi, Solid, Solidis, XB and XF.
All applications have been submitted to the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Organization), by the same contact person from Munich, Germany. The trademarks are categorized under Cat 9, including smartphones.
The name LG Bendi seems to belong in the list of foldable smartphones at home. Bendi probably refers to ‘bendable’, or bendable. LG has already shown a prototype with a bendable display in the past.
The names LG Solid and LG Solidis seem to refer to a solid, or robust, smartphone. Whether this device will also have a flexible display is unknown. In any case, the names do not seem to belong to an existing series.
Then, we have two names LG XB and LG XF. LG already has an X-series smartphone line-up. Possibly these two model names will belong to the existing series.
