Consumers may see a new series of devices from Samsung Electronics soon, after it applied for the trademark of "Galaxy H" in South Korea.

The world's largest handset maker by revenue filed on March 13 for the new trademarks of Galaxy H1 and Galaxy H7 to the Korea Intellectual Property Office (KIPO).

Samsung, besides its flagship Galaxy S for smartphones, previously launched the Galaxy A, E, and J for low- to mid-tier phones.

The Galaxy A series, comprising the Galaxy A3, A5, and A7, gained notice for using metal cases and having above-average specifications.

Nothing is yet known about the Galaxy H series, or whether it will be launched at all. However, if it does materialise, it will likely be another low- to mid-tier product line.

Samsung has vowed to reduce the number of models launched this year. It has been reorganising previously derivative products with a string of new names into unified alphabet brands, and will likely continue to do so.

Earlier, it applied for the trademarks of Galaxy A6, A8, and A9. A Samsung spokesman declined to comment.
