LG G7 might not be the G7 as LG rebrands flagship line

LG G7 might not be the G7 as LG rebrands flagship line

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, Shakespeare once wrote. Shakespeare, however, wasn’t a marketing expert. Usually, when companies stick to a successful brand to build identity and milk as much as they can from the brand. Imagine if Microsoft suddenly chose to name Windows into, say, Microsoft OS. And yet that might be what LG is doing with its flagship G series, at least according to an anonymous official.

LG 88-inch 8K OLED TV is ready for CES 2018

The TV-making industry is just as aggressive as smartphones these days. Especially after a long lull where there was barely any major innovation, trend, or hype pushing the market forward. Now we have curved screens, 4K resolutions, multiple HDR standards, and quantum or nano particles. If LG is to be asked, however, there is one more new territory to conquer: 8K.

But if you're not into always listening equipment, worry not. LG has a lot more in store.
