LG is engaged on a smartphone with a rollable OLED display screen, and that is now anticipated to launch in March. What it would find yourself being known as, although, appears much less clear. Yesterday we informed you a couple of trademark utility the Korean firm filed for the identify LG Rollable, and that appeared to settle this dialogue.
Nevertheless, this is a plot twist. LG has additionally filed an analogous trademark utility with the identical European Union Mental Property Workplace for the identify LG Slide. You could possibly make an argument that one must ‘slide’ the rollable display screen out and in when utilizing the cellphone, so with that stretch (pardon the pun) this makes some sense.
Not as a lot, nevertheless, as LG Rollable. It is easy, it is descriptive, it is literal – what extra do you want? Let’s additionally point out, as soon as once more, that LG has prior to now additionally requested to trademark names similar to The Roll, Double Roll, Twin Roll, Bi-Roll, Roll Canvas, Bendi, Flex, Foldi, and Duplex. If you happen to ask as, all of those are foolish, and Rollable is the one one that matches completely. Which is your favourite, although?
Earlier than we go, let’s simply acknowledge that Slide may very well be a completely completely different LG cellphone, one which… slides out to disclose a second display screen? Form of just like the Wing, however with the previous ‘slider’ kind issue. Perhaps we’re simply studying means an excessive amount of into these names, then again. You be the decide.
