Huawei has trademarked names of several upcoming smartphones with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
The names of the devices that have been registered with the European authority are 20C, 30C, 40C, 50C, 10N, 20N, 30N, 40N and 50N.
The aforementioned phones are forthcoming Huawei C series and N series smartphones. Huawei’s sub-brand has released Honor 6C, Honor 7C, Honor 8C and Honor 9N smartphones. This suggests that the above phones may end up as Honor branded phones. However, this is just a calculated assumption.
In July last year, after releasing launch the P10 smartphone, Huawei registered P20 moniker which was released earlier this year. The predecessors of P10 were named as P9 and P8. It used the same naming strategy for its Mate lineup. After releasing Mate 8, Mate 9 and Mate 10 phones, the Chinese manufacturer announced the Mate 20 smartphone in October.
The P-series and Mate series phones arriving in 2019 are expected to carry P30 and Mate 30 monikers. Also, the successor of the Honor V10 phone from last year is expected to debut as Honor V20 in December.
If the newly spotted C series and N series Huawei trademarks will end up being Honor phones, probably would they end up as Honor 20C, Honor 30C, Honor 40C, Honor 50C, Honor 10N, Honor 20N, Honor 30N, Honor 40N and Honor 50N. There is no mentioning of 10C name among the newly trademarked Huawei devices.
There is no information available on the specifications on the above phones. It remains to be seen whether the newly trademarked will end up Honor phones or new C series and N series smartphones with Huawei branding. The registrations of these names with EUIPO is an indication that Huawei may release these phones in the European markets in the coming years.
