Samsung may have just given us a little insight into what some of its upcoming Androids could be called, revealing three new names for its Galaxy series while filing for US trademark protection.
We similarly looked at a couple other names Samsung trademarked back in January, Joy and Fresh, but today’s find is a little more interesting, thanks to the presence of that Galaxy name. We’re not sure that necessarily all of these will end up used by Samsung for the names of commercially-released devices, but should Samsung choose to, it may release phones under the names Galaxy Thunder, Galaxy Express, and Galaxy Accelerate.
In addition to its trademark filing for these Galaxy models, Samsung also trademarked the Samsung Wallet. We’ve been hearing plenty about NFC-based payment systems from carriers, sure, but not really from manufacturers; could Samsung be planning a Google Wallet competitor of its own?
