The folks over at Fusible have discovered that Samsung has filed a trademark with the US PTO for three new names: Galaxy Sire, Galaxy Perx, and Galaxy Lift. While we don't have any details yet, we do know that we're looking at phones and not tablets - the trademarks were filed under the "Mobile phones; Smartphones" category.

Given the names, I'd guess we're looking at carrier-branded versions of the same device. I'm really hoping these are budget phones and not the SGSIII, as "Sire," "Perx," and "Lift," certainly don't strike me as flagship names. What do you think?

    Samsung Lift. That just sounds odd.

    What a shame we can't just have things like "Samsung galaxy sII *insert carrier*". Nope have to have some random word at the end.

      Quite indeed. This naming policy of Samsung's is the weirdest. What's the point of naming the same device thousands of different ways? Buttons in the front are maybe in a different order, but that's it.

      From European point of view, that is.

    They really should stick to conventional names are Galaxy 1, Galaxy 2, Galaxy 3, etc

    Why can't you just finish pushing out ICS for all the Samsung phones and calm down with the new phones! my GS2 needs some android love!

    Galaxy lift...hmmm.......i think it must have some type of "lifting" technology

    Just because Samsung trademarks these names doesn't mean that the carriers will not re-brand them. I couldn't care less how the phone is called as long as it does what I need it to do.

    Perx I'm about to take some perx rite now what a quawinkieedink. Need anything

    So it is true that android phones are named after types of condoms.

    I think Verizon's gonna pull a 2011 and not release the SIII on their carrier. With all of these rumors it seems like AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are the 3.
