OnePlus registers a mysterious new trademark with the USPTO
OnePlus is a company that can be said to have finally realized its patent ambition to become a household name in the area of mobile and smart devices. Now, there is evidence that the company is planning to extend its reach further still.
This may be done through as-yet unknown product or service under a new sub-brand called Nord by OnePlus. This name has been claimed as a trademark in the form of an application with the USPTO. It falls into the international primary class of 042.
This category encompasses a range of technology- or science-related services, research or development, including that on hardware, software and storage solutions. However, there is a chance it may not be the latter, as OnePlus has also just announced a new initiative by which its smartphone customers get up to 3 months' worth of access to Google One for free.
The OEM's new trademark application has only just been accepted by the USPTO, having originally been submitted on March 26, 2020. Therefore, it may still be some time before OnePlus releases any further details on this possible new "Nord"-themed venture.
