On March 12, 2013, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a three new Samsung trademarks. The one of interest is one titled "Chord." The new trademark is representing a new app with group sharing functionality for smartphones and tablets. A second function relates to the trademark relating to software development tools. The filing shows that the trademarks were actually filed last week. Considering that Samsung is holding a special event on Thursday night to launch their new Samsung Galaxy S4 (and maybe more), today's revelation may provide you with a sneak peek at one of the new apps for their smartphone upgrade.
One of Samsung's Latest Trademark Filings is for "Chord"
Samsung's trademark application 85870222 for the trademark "Chord" was filed on March 07, 2013. The trademark was filed under International Class 009. Samsung's legal team filed the trademark under this specific detailing: Application software for mobile phones, smartphones and tablet computers having a group sharing function; software development tools for building and developing application software having contents sharing function for phones, smartphones and tablet computers; computer software development tools.
Samsung had filed for a Chord trademark in 2011 that didn't pan out as it was non-specific. It would appear that their marketing and legal team got too far ahead of the curve. Now that the trademark is clearly defined, we could reasonably expect this to unfold in the not-too-distant future.
The other trademark filings discovered at the US Patent Office include "Samsung Joy" and "Samsung Fresh." Both were filed under International Class 009 with the same description as follows: "tablet computers, notebook computers and computers." At the moment, we have no idea as to what the trademarks will be associated with specifically. The trademarks were filed under numbers 85867969 and 85867964 respectively.
