For the past few years, LG has been launching both G and V-series handsets, both of which represent flagship handsets that are launched at different times in the year, with the G-series typically seeing a release in the early part of the year, with the V-series launching in the later part of the year.

There has been speculation that LG could merge the G and V-series together, and recent trademark filings discovered by LetsGoDigital have indicated that might be the case. This is because LG has filed for five different LG V-series trademarks for models including the LG V50, V60, V70, V80, and V90. Unless LG is covering ground for the next five years, there is a good chance that perhaps some of these models could be replacements for the LG G-series.

The reason behind a potential merger of the G and V-series is apparently because LG executives have been disappointed by the sales of its G-series, and the V-series is said to evoke more positive reactions. We’re not sure if a simple rebranding is enough to turn things around for LG, but we suppose it couldn’t really hurt.

The company had previously stated that they are not giving up on their smartphones just yet and stated that their mid-rangers have been doing well, so alternatively it is possible that these V-series phones could be mid-range handsets, but we’ll have to wait and see.
