Samsung has applied for six more Galaxy smartphone trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
On May 10, Samsung hit up the Patent and Trademark office with six names for as of yet unannounced Galaxy phones. The names included:
- Galaxy Forge (Serial No. 8561866)
- Galaxy Lunge (Serial No. 85621870)
- Galaxy Mission (Serial No. 85621859)
- Galaxy Rivet (Serial No. 85621854)
- Galaxy Victory (Serial No. 85621853)
- Galaxy Wield (Serial No. 85621864)
While names don’t tell us a whole lot about a phone, the Galaxy Mission is the only one that has a potentially “high-end” feel to me. Four of the remaining five strike me as mid-range phones, and the Galaxy Rivet sounds potentially like a rugged phone. Taking a cue from Rosie the Riveter up above, it’s a name that definitely implies “strength.”
As Fusible pointed out in its discovery of these names, “Lunge” and “Victory” sound vaguely sports like, and with the Galaxy S III being named as the official phone of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, perhaps these could be carrier specific names for the new top line phone. We’ll just have to wait and see.
No release dates or announcements have been mentioned yet for any of these devices, so, for now, just keep them in the back of your mind for phones we could be seeing from Samsung in the near future.
