Samsung files an application to trademark the S6 Note name; could this be the Galaxy S6 Plus?

Samsung files an application to trademark the S6 Note name; could this be the Galaxy S6 Plus?
Remember the video we showed you earlier this month of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Plus? This unannounced device is expected to be similar to the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, but with a larger screen. The figure bandied about was 5.5-inches which compares to the 5.1-inch glass on the current model.

But as it turns out, this device might answer to a different name. Samsung has filed an application in South Korea to trademark the S6 Note name. That means that the phone expected to be called the Galaxy S6 Plus could come to market as the Samsung Galaxy S6 Note.

As a full card carrying member of the Note family, this also could mean that the Galaxy S6 Note could come with S Pen functionality. While most of the specs would remain the same as those employed on the Galaxy S6 edge, there could be one major change. Instead of the 64-bit Exynos 7420 SoC powering the phone, the Galaxy S6 Note would be driven by the 64-bit Snapdragon 808 chipset, featuring a hexa-core CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU.

More proof that even with the words wriiten in BLACK AND WHITE, your reading and comprehension skills are nowhere to be seen.

You should never talk about anyones opinion when you can't even read.

The article plainly states: Samsung has filed an application in South Korea to trademark the S6 Note name

The Galaxy S6 Plus name was not coined by Samsung. It was coined by another person who was trying to guess what the larger device could be.

dropping this model out of production would be much better. S Series and Note series should be apart.

So this is interesting. In fact I am curios as to why the Note, never had the S in its name.

For those of us who understand Samsung Galaxy line, the Note is nothing more than a larger Galaxy S with beefier specs and the S-Pen.

The first 3 models of the Note, were always based on the S release earlier in the same year. Samsung changed this with the Note 4, which didn't borrow any cosmetic cues from the Galaxy S5 which I think was a welcomed change by many including me. The Note 4 was the only Note, that actually looked like it was its own standalone device.

But since it is technically an S classed device, Galaxy S6 Note seems just right. Problem is it shouldn't be called a Note unless Samsung plans to provide a pen with it to give the S some extra shared capabilities which would be nice.

Why would they call it the GS6 Note? I prefer the idea that the Note and S series are separate lines rather than just blown up version of the other like the 6 and 6plus.

If Samsung was going for this naming scheme, they should have released them all at the same time or close to each other.

Where do they find these trademark applications? And the patent design submissions too?

Any intelligent person knows that the "Plus" moniker was first introduced by Samsung. In fact, Samsung has released over twenty "Plus" phones. Of course, only the foolish iFans believe that Apple came up with that name.
