Samsung is filing trademarks left, right and centre. Over the past couple months we’ve seen them register the Samsung Joy, Samsung Fresh, Galaxy Axiom, Awaken, Heir, Rite, Emerge, Stellar and Halo. No word on when or where these device names will end up, but proves that Samsung is serious about their device lineup this year (they are estimating to ship 374 million devices in 2012).
Three new trademarks have been registered with the US Patent and Trademark Office: Galaxy Grand, Galaxy Premier, and Galaxy Next. The Galaxy Next (S5570) is already in the market, known as the Samsung Galaxy Mini, but the Galaxy Grand and Galaxy Premier are new. Both these names sound like they could be variants of a flagship device, possibly the upcoming Galaxy S III, but that’s speculation.
