It looks like Samsung will be expanding its Galaxy lineup of phones come 2012 as a recent trademark filing for the ‘Samsung Galaxy Sleek’ brand was uncovered. It’s unclear if the product will be a tablet or phone as the broad trademark description covers “telephones, smart phones, mobile phones and tablet computers.”
With the company already championing the thin and light design philosophy where mobile products are involved, the ‘Sleek’ moniker may be an extension of that for the next calendar year.
At this point it’s still too early to tell if Galaxy Sleek will be its own product line and category within Samsung’s mobile lineup, or if it will be a descriptor for a Samsung Galaxy product. For example, today Samsung has a Galaxy S II line, but within that line, there are the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch and the Galaxy S II Skyrocket.
