Huawei has trademarked new ‘A’ series of smartphones for future Honor phones such as 20A, 30A, 40A and 50A with National Institute of Industry Property (NIIP) in Argentina.
The same authority has also approved 20X, 30X, 40X and 50X. This indicates that Huawei may soon introduced A and X series of smartphones under Honor since it has already released phones already with such suffixes – Honor 7A, Honor 8C and Honor 8X.
Last week, Nashville Chatter had reported that Huawei had trademarked new Huawei ‘N’ and ‘C’ series of smartphones with Europe’s EUIPO body which are likely to be used for Honor models.
Regarding the recent trademarks filed in Argentina, apart from trademarking 20A, 30A, 40A, 50A, 20X, 30X, 40X and 50X phone names, the Chinese manufacturer has also registered the ‘C’ series of smartphones as well. The C lineup includes 20C, 30C, 40C and 50C monikers. The very same C series phones were also approved by EUIPO. The N series of smartphones certified by EUIPO include 20N, 30N, 40N and 50N.
There is no confirmation on when Huawei will be introducing the new A, C, X and N series of smartphones. There is a possibility that these phones may also end up as Honor devices. Since the company has trademarked the above phone names in Europe and Argentina, it appears that the smartphones belonging to the newly spotted series will be available in markets across the globe.
Recent reports have revealed that Samsung is revamping its mid-range series of smartphones to regain lost grounds in key markets like China and Samsung. The South Korean company is said to be readying Galaxy M series to replace the existing Galaxy On, Galaxy J and Galaxy C lineups.
Even the Galaxy A phones are expected to carry cheaper price tags since they are rumored to arrive with LCD screens instead of AMOLED displays. The newly trademarked phones by Huawei suggests that it could be devising a plan to rival with Samsung’s upcoming mid-range phones.
