CES 2018 is getting ready to start in just a few days, and this is signifying the start of the 2018 smartphone craze. LG reportedly has some big plans in store as it will be one of the first companies to release a flagship device in 2018.

According to a report from The Investor, LG will be rebranding its “G” lineup of devices, beginning with the LG G7. Instead of opting for the single letter and number, LG will be moving to either a “two-digit number or rebranding the phone with a new name”.

It’s highly unlikely that we’ll see something like the “V” lineup of devices, but LG could end up moving to something as basic as the “LG 7” or something along those lines. As for when we are expecting to learn more about this move, LG is expected to unveil its first flagship in 2018 at Mobile World Congress in February.

Unlike other devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S9, there really hasn’t been much leaked or shared about the next LG flagship. So we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground to see what LG has up its sleeve for the first half of 2018.

Let us know what you think about this potential move and if you think it’s a good thing for LG, or if the company should just stick with the naming monikers for its flagship devices.
