Samsung has been maintaining its Galaxy A-Series smartphones since the launch of the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 back in November 2014. However, it now appears that the South Korean behemoth is in plans to upgrade its nomenclature by start favouring double-digit monikers for the future Galaxy A-Series models instead of the previous single-digit names. The company has already filed for trademarks in Europe for devices, namely A10, A30, A50, A70, and A90 to hint at the ongoing development. Notably, the company earlier used titles as “Nxt”, “Pro”, and “Max” with its Galaxy J-Series to differentiate multiple models.
As per the trademark listings available on the European Trademark and Design Network (TMDN) website, Samsung is building five new A-Series devices with a double-digit moniker. The listings don’t reveal any details on the part of the launch date and specifications of the available models. Nevertheless, it is interesting that the trademark applications of all the five devices have been filed on July 20. The same application date suggests that all the five models are currently in the pipeline and may debut together in the coming future.
It is important to note that the listings on the TMDN site don’t carry the Galaxy brand that Samsung uses with its Android devices. This sounds similar to the Tizen-based models that have so far abandoned the Galaxy brand to distinguish their presence. However, as GalaxyClub.nl notes, the trademarks filed with the Korean Intellectual Property Office have confirmed the patent applications of the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50. This suggests that the other three models may also belong to the Galaxy family only.
There could be some changes in the names of the final devices. Also, Samsung could entirely discard the listed models and bring something new to the market. We, therefore, need to wait for some further developments to understand what’s cooking up behind the scenes.
