Get ready for more V-series phones: LG trademarks names up to the V90

The LG V-series has long boasted top-tier phones with modern and classy designs and excellent specs, and it looks like that isn’t going to change any time soon. LetsGoDigital has spotted trademark filings in Canada for the LG V50, LG V60, LG V70, LG V80, and LG V90, suggesting we could get at least five more years of LG V-series phones.

Of course, it’s important to note that this doesn’t necessarily mean that LG will definitely release phones all the way up to the LG V90 — just that it’s trademarking names to have the option if it ultimately decides to. This does, however, all but confirm that the company is working on an LG V50.

Unfortunately, it may be some time before the LG V50 is actually released. The last V-series phone was the LG V45 ThinQ, and it’s expected that the next will be the LG V45 ThinQ. Alternatively, LG may simply jump ahead and release an LG V50 instead of V45. After all, the company didn’t seem to trademark any Vx5-type names, so maybe it’ll switch to only releasing models with names in increments of 10.

Before we get any new V-series phone, however, we’ll probably get a G-series device. LG releases two flagship phones per year, with the G-series device normally being released toward the beginning of the year, and V-series phones a little later, often around October.

So what will these new phones have to offer? Well, next year’s devices will likely feature a new Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, which has been released in December the past two years. They may also offer better displays; some rumors indicate that LG may step things up to a 4K display. Under that display, the company may feature tech like a fingerprint sensor and tech to use the display as a front-facing speaker.

We’ve already started hearing rumors about the LG G8, which suggest that the phone may do away with the notch thanks to new display technology and that the phone will likely offer at least 6GB of RAM. We expect rumors to start popping up about the LG V50 in the next year or so.

It took me 8 months to try out this fantastic iOS 17 feature
The iPhone 15 Pro Max with Standby mode on the Anker MagGo Wireless Charging Station.

It has taken me quite a while, but I’ve recently had a chance to try out a feature in iOS 17 that, until now, I had forgotten even existed. I’m talking about StandBy mode, and I feel a bit silly for having passed it by for so long, as it’s really good.

Why haven’t I used it until now? It turns out I just needed the right piece of hardware to come along.
What is StandBy mode?

Wow! Walmart just dropped the price of this Apple Watch to $189
The front of the Apple Watch SE 2.

The Apple Watch is a fantastic piece of technology, but unfortunately its latest releases are pretty expensive. If you're fine with an older version of the wearable device, you may want to take advantage of Walmart's $60 discount for the GPS, 40mm model of the second-generation Apple Watch SE. From its original price of $249, it's down to a more affordable $189, and you won't be missing out on a lot of features. It's highly recommended that you make the purchase within the day, if possible, as tomorrow may already be too late to shop this offer.

Why you should buy the Apple Watch SE 2
The second-generation Apple Watch SE is featured in our list of the best smartwatches as the best budget smartwatch for the iPhone because you'll be able to access most of the features of Apple's wearable device at a fraction of the price of the flagship models. Its fitness-tracking features are comprehensive but simple to use, and it's comfortable to wear the whole day so you can maximize its battery life of up to two days on a single carge.

Save up to $1,150 on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra today
Recent apps view on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra.

Tablets are great if you're the sort of person who doesn't want to lug around a laptop all the time and finds having a tablet an excellent alternative. If that's the case and you want to use a tablet as a laptop replacement, then you'll want to go for one of the best tablets on the market, such as the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. Luckily, there's a pretty substantial Memorial Day offer from Samsung that gives you a straight discount from $950 to $1,200, as well as up to $800 worth of trade-in credit. That means you could potentially get the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra for as low as $150, assuming you trade in a high-end tablet, although you're more likely to get half of that if yours is a couple of years old. Still, the original $250 discount plus another $400-$800 can be pretty substantial.

Why you should buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra
When we originally reviewed the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9, our conclusion was that it was a hard tablet to recommend, primarily because it was outrageously expensive, especially since the iPad Pro is cheaper. That said, with the discount and potential trade-in credit, the price isn't so bad, and some of the other excellent features start to stand out, such as the truly massive 14.6-inch screen, which is bigger than the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Of course, that does come with its own problem, which is that it's pretty heavy to hold, especially for long periods, although if you use it with a case that has a stand, that issue can be substantially mitigated.
