The LG Q Note phablet with stylus support might be in the works
LG Mobile might be sailing rough waters lately, but a high-end phablet with stylus support might push back up the troubled smartphone division of the South Korean multinational conglomerate which has been known as Lucky-Gold Star for almost four decades (between 1958 and 1995). Sadly, most of the rumors concerning such a device that surfaced in the last few years turned out to be inaccurate.
Dutch website LetsGoDigital reports (thank you for the heads-up, Mark Peters) that LG registered the Q Note trademark with the Korean Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS) earlier this month. According to the same source, the Q Note trademark has been classified as "Cat 9," which includes smartphones and mobile apps, phone displays, batteries for handsets, TV receivers, and wireless headsets.
For now, there is no information about the features and specs of this device — or at least a launch date. On the other hand, LG might aim for a release date before August in the worst case scenario, since the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is expected to arrive then. If the upcoming Q-series phablet turns out to be a high-end device, it is rather safe to assume that it will come with the ThinQ set of AI features and about the same set of technical specs as the upcoming LG G7 ThinQ flagship.
Back in 2015, The Korea Herald reported that the G4 Note trademark was registered. The LG G4 Stylus and the cheaper LG G Stylo arrived a few months later, but there was no G4 Note launch. Now, we need to wait for the LG G7 to finally launch and maybe we will find out more about a possible LG Q Note. As far as we know, the LG G7 should arrive by the end of May, so stay tuned.
