Samsung Registers Trademarks for Three Galaxy Devices


Samsung may have come up with three great news for three great smartphones, or they’re just covering their bases on some names they’ve thought up and aren’t keen on using them just yet. Whatever the case is, they’ve registered three new trademarks for names: Galaxy Grand, Galaxy Next, and Galaxy Premier. The Galaxy Next already exists and it’s a low-end Android phone from last year.

While the trademark filing descriptions are calling these phones everything since sliced bread, Samsung reserves the GALAXY name exclusively for phones and tablets.

It’s safe to say, then, that none of these are Android-powered microwaves. However, we’re still curious. It’s impossible to know what exactly these registered names are for but I can’t imagine Samsung won’t use at least one of them. [USPTO via PocketNow]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I can’t wait until Sammy finally let the SGS III lose. It’s the only phone besides the Nexus line that matters to me the most.

  2. I hate those low-end Samsung phones so much. Like the ones for Virgin Mobile and stuff. They just piss me off and I don’t know why. The small screens and everything. Just ugh. Alright bye.

  3. galaxy nex-t (see what i did there) ;)

  4. It’d be cool if Galaxy Grand is dual screen 10″ tablet. 14″ goodness if used as one screen XD.

  5. Too many models.  I’d rather have the same phone with an incremental update like the iPhone has, less confusion to what exactly is being sold.  There’s what, four or five different Galaxy phones (more?), not counting carrier modifications of the same base unit.

    1.  Androcentral? WTF screw you bastard!
