Samsung trademarks Galaxy A6, A8, and A9, we all know what this means
posted by Peter K. / Mar 09, 2015, 5:05 AM
After the Samsung Galaxy Alpha arrived in late-to-mid 2014, the company quickly figured out that there might actually be a neat niche for a mid-range devices that pack a better design than its usual plasticky offerings. This is the reason for the inception of the Galaxy A lineup of phones, which consists of the Galaxy A3, A5, and the A7 at the moment.
This might change, as Samsung has just filed trademarks for the "Galaxy A6, "Galaxy A8", and "Galaxy A9" with the USPTO. Just as you might imagine, this is indicative that Sammy is at least considering to expand this relatively-new device family with three new devices.
Judging from the trademarked names, the Galaxy A8 and A9 could end up being slightly more powerful versions of the Galaxy A7, whereas the Galaxy A6 might be positioned between the A5 and A7, respectively.
Then again, we should not entirely rule out the possibility that Samsung is making sure no other manufacturer releases a device bearing one of the three trademarked names. While this is possible, we are still more inclined to believe that we've just caught a glimpse of a future Samsung portfolio expansion.

From the look of it, that's their new strategy. Giving the costumers less option, with better quality and less confusing names. I am glad Samsung has suffered badly last year, because it seems that they had to push the panic button and listen to what the costumers want.

More overpriced phones with weak specs.

In my country, Galaxy A7 is equivalent $470 officially and $430 in store, and we get a beautiful phone with very thin (more than 6+) alluminum unibody and 1080p Amoled screen, Snapdragon 615, good rear and front cameras and a good brand. What do you want more? Dont forget there is an Exynos 5430 version too.

I already own an A6... it's got 7 inch screen, navigation, voice control for multi-media infotainment (MMI), panoramic views, battery recharges when you use it, made out of glass, metal/alumenum and plastic, with leather. Pretty heavy though.. Xenon light in the front, but LED in the back. Every option included. But instead of 8 cores, it's got 8 cylinders.

Um, what's the point? The Galaxy A series is just fine at the moment. Samsung should know by now that market flooding is no longer a very profitable solution! In fact, they should leave their lineup alone for a few months.

Why do Samsung still use the 'Galaxy' branding. Why not simply use 'Alpha' for their newer devices. I mean 'Samsung Galaxy Alpha' just seems silly to me?

Samsung uses Galaxy for the devices that are running on Android.

A8 has now already made its presence as it was launched recently and A9 had leaked once or twice in the past but there is no news about the A4 and A6 smartphones. But as far the rumors to be believed the A4 and A6 will make the route for themselves with A9 at CES 2016.
