The Samsung Galaxy Tab line is expected to expand. The Korean tech company has already applied the trademarking for the Galaxy Tab A, Galaxy Tab E and Galaxy Tab J devices. According to these trademark applications, Samsung wants to simplify its tablet line, when it comes to naming. However, it may still be confusing for users when it comes to differentiating the Galaxy Tab line.
Samsung wants to flood the tablet market in 2015 with a various range of models, sizes, strengths and price ranges. The company also wants to include names that make it easier for users to remember and distinguish. The new names do not hint anything about the Galaxy Tab hardware, but it has been rumored that Samsung will create a new 64-bit Galaxy Tab units, according to IT ProPortal.
According to Phonearena, these new names may be a new naming scheme concocted by Samsung. The company wants to create new names for the Galaxy Tab, Galaxy Tab S or the Galaxy Note/Note Pro lineups. Another report on Sammobile says that users should expect three different size Galaxy Tab devices this year.
The new Galaxy Tabs are trademarked as Galaxy Tab A, Galaxy Tab E and Galaxy Tab J. Samsung is also expected to release a line of Galaxy Tab 4 devices with 64-bit Snapdragon processors. These tablets could fall into one or at least three of the new lineups. In addition, Samsung already has its AS Plus and AL Plus models in the work, and they’re reported to be seven-inch or eight-inch that include Google’s Android Lollipop 5.0.
Samsung is trying hard to cut down on the number of devices it releases each year. But it just seems like the company is just trying to make it easier to differentiate one Galaxy Tab from another. Some believe that this is a smart idea on Samsung’s part, after it had several Galaxy Tab 4 models with very little differentiating features between them that it was not easy to choose. Samsung’s new line of tablets will have more to offer users since the tablet market is reportedly not doing well.
Last year, the Samsung Galaxy Tab didn’t want to infringe on any of the design patents held by the Apple iPad, according to a report on the Inquisitr. The lawsuit focused on the Galaxy Tab’s rounded edges, especially those found on the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 7.7. Apple claimed that the rounded edges were a rip off the company’s trademark iPad design.
It looks like Samsung is trying very hard to dominate the tablet market by differentiating itself from not only the Apple iPad, but also its own Galaxy Tab devices. Since these devices are being developed, users can expect them to hit stores in the second half of 2015. Do you think Samsung can offer some exciting Galaxy Tab options at a decent price point?
