LG's Q-series consists of mid-range smartphones that offer decent specs at affordable prices. The company has launched so far launched two phones under this series; LG Q6 and LG Q8. Well, it seems like LG is planning to add a new member to its Q-lineup.
The South Korean tech firm has filed a trademark for a handset called LG Q7. Filed at KIPO (Korean Intellectual Property Office), the trademark doesn't reveal any detail of the smartphone. However, based on the past patterns, we can make an uneducated guess. The Q6 is the watered-down version of LG G6, whereas the Q8 is the cheaper version of LG V30.
So the LG Q7 will probably be the affordable version of the upcoming LG G7 flagship. We think the LG Q7 will get launched only after the LG G7.
