When Samsung unveiled their foldable smartphone last month, not much was known about the handset save for the fact that it would have a foldable display. This lack of information included hardware specs, pricing, availability, and a name, although the latter seems to be slightly clearer thanks to a recent trademark filing.
According to the recently discovered trademark filing spotted by 91mobiles, the company has filed for a trademark for a device called the “Galaxy Fold”. Now there’s no way to indicate that this trademark could be used for their foldable smartphone, but at the same time unless Samsung is planning on launching a laptop under its Galaxy branding, it’s not hard to imagine that the “Galaxy Fold” could be a potential name for the phone.
Samsung’s previous experimental devices have had pretty straightforward names. For example when the company first launched its smartphone that had a display that could bend/flex, they named it the Galaxy Round, which admittedly wasn’t exactly the most clever but it did a good job of conveying what the company wanted consumers to know.
Like we said, so far not much is known about the foldable handset from Samsung, but last we heard in terms of pricing, it might not be cheap as it could cost $2,500. This could be most likely due to the fact that the phone is said to be a limited run device, and also because the technology involved is also new.
