Samsung appears to be adding a new lineup of smartphones to its mobile offering, as evidenced by a trademark application that it filed with the UK's Intellectual Property Office and other jurisdictions in the European Union. The filing reveals little details about the trademarked products, but it confirms that they belong to a smartphone.
The trademarks filed are for the Rize10, Rize20, and Rize30. It is worth pointing out, however, that there is the notable lack of the Galaxy branding in the trademark application. But by looking at their naming pattern, it's hard to rule out that these are indeed part of a new lineup of Samsung smartphones.
If indeed the Rize series turns out to be another range of mobile devices, the new series is expected to be composed of handsets with modest specs. More details on that aspect are expected to pop up in the coming months.
This is not the first time that Samsung filed trademark applications for a new series of devices this year. In July, the South Korean tech giant reportedly trademarked yet another set of names possibly for new future devices under its Galaxy A lineup such as the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50. It remains unclear, though, how these devices will differ from its existing mid-range offerings.
