Samsung has just trademarked 4 new handsets, that we might see in action at MWC 2012 next week in Barcelona. The new models are Samsung Galaxy Axiom, Galaxy Awaken, Galaxy Heir and Galaxy Rite. These devices have a certain US sound to them, so I can’t guarantee these names will be kept on all continents.
You’re probably familiar with the fact that in the USA the Samsung Galaxy S II has no less than 4 different names, depending on the carriers it’s sold on. I expect the new models from MWC 2012 to also get the same treatment, with rebrandings and additions of the “4G” name when the device supports HSPA+. The trademark applications mention “mobile phones; smartphones” and considering the Galaxy branding, I’m expecting Android units here. The company from South Korea has filed these trademarks with the US Patents and Trademark Office less than a week ago.
If I were to speculate two of these models are Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Mini 2, one of them is the Galaxy S II Plus and the fourth is probably the new Galaxy Note, or maybe a brand new model with unique features. Maybe a rugged phone or maybe a new affordable phone? We’ll see at MWC!
