Galaxy AI Watch trademark filed, but not by Samsung


Samsung has renamed their smartwatch series in 2018, the Gear S3 was replaced by the Galaxy Watch in August 2018. A logical name change, as all current Samsung smartphones are being put to market under the series name Galaxy. The company took the necessary preparations by filling a trademark for ‘Galaxy Watch’ on May 4, 2018. One month later they also filed a trademark for the name ‘Samsung Galaxy Watch’. However, earlier this week PhoneArena reported that the South Korean watchmaker Orient has filed an application at the Seoul Central District Court for the suspension of sales of the Samsung Galaxy Watch on the grounds of trademark infringement. Samsung stated they have not yet received any information regarding the lawsuit, as reported by Korea IT Times. However, Samsung does very well know that ‘someone’ objected to both trademarks (‘Galaxy Watch’ and ‘Samsung Galaxy Watch’) on October 12, 2018. As a results, the trademarks are still pending.
