LG's strategy for its premium smartphones have so far been simple. The "G" launches in the first half of the year followed by the "V". While LG does sometimes launch phones reusing a popular "G" model, those are all mid-range or lower devices. You can kiss that simple system goodbye soon. Korean media reports that LG is planning to start a new trend of having "premium derivative" models, starting with an LG G6 Plus and LG G6 Pro, while, at the same time, consolidating its entry-level phones under a single X+number scheme.
