Samsung - staying true to form - went on a trademark-filing rampage recently, snatching up trademarks for six new devices, described in the documents only as "Mobile telephones; Smartphones."

The newly-trademarked device names include Lunge (SN 85621870), Galaxy Forge (SN 8561866), Galaxy Wield (SN 85621864), Galaxy Mission (SN 85621859), Galaxy Rivet (SN 85621854), and the Galaxy Victory (SN 85621853).

Considering these are just trademark filings, there's no way of knowing when (if ever) we may see smartphones with these names, or what the devices will be like.

Of course, the question of just what Sammy is planning to do with these names would be slightly more compelling if the manufacturer's penchant for wild-hare trademark grabbing weren't so established.

    Galaxy Forge sounds kind of bad ass. Like something from a Marvel Comic.

      It sounds like a machine made by an ancient race of aliens that they use to build a new galaxy from scratch

    Carrier names for the SGS III? Verizon, ATT, TMobile, Sprint, US Cellular and Metro PSC could be the 6. Much like Fascinate, Captivate, Vibrant, Epic, Memorize etc

      Except its incredibly stupid to give essentially the same device 6 different names, that's what model numbers are for. They really need to stop stamping Galaxy on everything and reserve it only for their highest-end devices.
