Samsung Galaxy A series has been around for a while now, but beginning 2019, the Korean company made a small tweak to the naming scheme by introducing a second digit – a zero – to the initial naming style.
This is why we got the Galaxy A70 to succeed the Galaxy A7 2018, Galaxy A80 as a successor to the Galaxy A8 2018, and soon the Galaxy A90 will succeed the Galaxy A9 2018, and so on. Naturally, we would expect the Galaxy A70 to get Galaxy A70 (2020) as a successor, the Galaxy A80 to get Galaxy A80 (2020), Galaxy A50 to get a Galaxy A50 (2020), etc.
But based on trademarks filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), it seems Samsung has other ideas that seem pretty much realistic. Apparently, Samsung Galaxy A 2020 series will add a number and not a year after their identifier.
So, if these trademarks materialize, we are looking at names like Samsung Galaxy A11, Galaxy A21, Galaxy A31, all the way up to Galaxy A91. Granted, we’ll likely see a similar naming scheme for the Galaxy M series.
This is great, if you ask me, however, companies like Samsung are known to file numerous trademarks that they never get to use.
