LG’s cell trade has been doing a little questionable issues in recent years. All of it started to move downhill when it launched a V30 with rather higher specifications because the “V30S ThinQ” for a whopping $929.99 (which it has since diminished through $200). It then up to date the prevailing V30 with “ThinQ” branding as neatly. The corporate now appears to be doing the similar factor with the G6 for some reason why, regardless of the telephone being over a 12 months previous.
As though including a meaningless moniker to an previous telephone wasn’t sufficient, LG is stylizing the ThinQ portion as superscript, so the authentic identify of the telephone is now “LG G6ThinQ.” On best of that, the Platinum-colored model, regardless of no longer being a different version, by hook or by crook will get its personal identify: “”LG G6ThinQ Platinum.” LG is making issues needlessly sophisticated for itself.
Please by no means put superscript to your product identify. We are taking a look at you too, Motorola.
The rebranding is these days handiest in impact on LG’s Canadian website online in English; French nonetheless displays it with the previous, ThinQ-less identify. We have now reached out to LG to explain whether or not it was once intentional, and if that is so, if it’s going to unfold to different areas as neatly.
