Apparently the South Korean company, LG, trademarked a smartphone with the name G5 SE in its home country. As you guys already know, Apple had unveiled an iPhone SE last month which sported 4 inch Retina display and hosted Apple A9 chip with a dual core 1.85 GHz processor coupled with PowerVR GT7600 six-core graphics under its hood. This goes without saying that if LG actually goes ahead and launches a smartphone with a suffix ‘SE’, they might end up getting sued by the Cupertino company.

Unfortunately we have not further details except for the trademark filing. Thus, LG might decide to drop the SE suffix and choose one of its own, or it might just chooses to release a smaller G5 with the very suffix used by Apple. The logo you see on the top has been designed by LG itself, which suggests that the South Korean giant is actually serious about the release. However, nothing can be said with utter surety until the company officially announces the smartphone.
For those who don’t know, LG G5 was unveiled on MWC 2016. It features none other than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4 GB RAM, a metal design with a removable battery. Furthermore, it comes with an Always on Display which will allow its users to check the current date/time and various notifications like unread messages, missed calls and unread emails without actually unlocking the phone first. Moreover, G5 will be running on the Android Marshmallow 6.0. Marshmallow was released last year with numerous new goodies including a completely new app drawer, redesigned app permissions, Doze, and Google Now on Tap.
We’ll update you as soon as there is any new development in the LG G5 SE, so stay tuned.
