South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung appears set to greatly expand its Galaxy lineup of devices, and is securing trademarks for various names these products could feature.
Recently, the company filed applications for the trademarking of names such as Galaxy Grand, Galaxy Premier, and Galaxy Next.
The trademarking of these three names follows a similar move from Samsung made for Galaxy Thunder, Galaxy Express, and Galaxy Accelerate.
One thing that should be noted here is that Samsung did use some of these names for its devices in other countries around the world, but not in the United States.
Clearly, the handset vendor plans on re-using these monikers, though it remains to be seen what products will be pushed to shelves with these attached to them. Hopefully, some of them will be US-specific flavors of the upcoming Galaxy S III flagship.
