Samsung trademarks Galaxy Fold moniker, possibly for its foldable phone

Samsung foldable phone

Information about a Samsung phone with a foldable display is as old as the hills. However, it wasn’t until recently that the Korean Chaebol demoed this technology giving us an idea of what the final device will look like at its annual Samsung Developer Conference.

Although Samsung hasn’t revealed what the foldable phone will be called, speculations have it that it could be called the Galaxy F, Galaxy x, and more recently the Galaxy Flex. We probably still have weeks or months to wait before we could finally behold the foldable device, but before then, a recent trademark application might have just revealed what the foldable Samsung phone could be called.

First sighted by Sammobile, the Korean giant has filed for the trademark protection of the Galaxy Fold moniker, fueling speculations that the upcoming device might be so named. The trademark detail indicates Samsung is protecting the moniker for use in a variety of products including smartphones, but as with any patent protection, this isn’t a confirmation that the first foldable phone from Samsung will be called the Galaxy Flex, so do not get your hopes high.
