Samsung trademarks what could be the product name for its first-gen rollable phone

Samsung has just applied to trademark the words "Z Slide" with the EU's intellectual property office (EUIPO). Given the category this new potential product name falls into, it gives the profound impression of belonging to a device with a rollable or slide-out display. It may thus fuel rumors that the OEM is indeed nearly ready to launch just such a cutting-edge phablet.

The rollable or slidable phone is a form-factor that may have the potential to take over from foldables once they hit the market. At least, this is what some OEMs seem to think, as they have one or two in development already. They include TCL, OPPO – and Samsung, a company that now seems to have settled on a product name for its inaugural next-gen flexible-display device.

The South Korean giant has just applied for a possibly relevant term as a trademark in Europe. Going by the OEM’s normal pattern for product monikers, the name “Galaxy Z Slide” could be seen swirling around the rumor mill in the next few years. The pending trademark falls into category 9 of the EUIPO’s trademarking regime, which encompasses a wide range of electronics from USB drives to smartphones.

Therefore, it is indeed possible that the Galaxy Z Slide is an emerging in-house competitor for the Z Fold and Flip lines. Samsung has indicated that it has displays that could go with the name in the works at present, and could be ready to launch its first rollable device as early as 2022. On the other hand, nothing concerning rollable tech is certain at this point.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
