Recent reports have claimed that Samsung has killed off the Galaxy Note series, effectively nuking all hopes for a Galaxy Note 22 or Note 22 Ultra. Those reports, generally sourced to popular leaker Ice Universe, look to have been based on an illogical assumption and are misguided.

Over the past few days, multiple reports have surfaced claiming that Samsung has now killed off the Galaxy Note 22 series. The supposed justification? Samsung failing to renew the Galaxy Note trademark. As it turns out, those reports were baseless.

As clarified by tipster Front Tron, indeed the trademark for the Galaxy Note series wasn't renewed but there's a reason for that—said trademark never expired in the first place. Samsung's trademark for the Galaxy Note was filed in 2011 and registered in 2013. Trademarks are typically valid for ten years; why would a renewal be needed now?

It's important to mention that none of this is evidence of whether or not there will be a Galaxy Note 22 series next year. Current information leans towards the negative and it may very well turn out so, but the lack of a trademark renewal for the series right now has no bearing on the argument.
