The Samsung Galaxy Z Slide could be the next smartphone to be added to the fancy Z line of the company. The South Korean company filed for the trademark of “Z Slide” in Europe on May 21.

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA – OCTOBER 25: The Samsung logo is displayed at the Samsung office on October 25, 2020 in Seoul, South Korea. Samsung Electronics chairman Lee Kun-hee,, who had transformed Samsung Group into one of the world’s major tech giants from a small trading firm, died at a hospital in Seoul on Sunday at age 78, leaving a thorny succession challenge for his children.

The description of the Z Slide, however, is similar to the other recently trademarked phone, the “Z Fold,” LetsGoDigital reported.  

Also part of the Z series are the Galaxy Fold 2, and the Galaxy Z Flip. The two foldable smartphones have been a massive success as it has positioned Samsung on top of the market of the said device type. 

The success of both devices is not stopping Samsung. It is now preparing for another product that will introduce a fancy feat to the market. At least, that is what the recent trademark suggests, LesGoDigital said in the same report.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – JANUARY 08: The Galaxy Fold 5G is displayed at the Samsung booth during CES 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center on January 8, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. CES, the world’s largest annual consumer technology trade show, runs through January 10 and features about 4,500 exhibitors showing off their latest products and services to more than 170,000 attendees.

Samsung Galaxy Z Slide: The Slidable Phone 

Samsung Electronics trademarked the “Z Slide” moniker in the European Union Intellectual Property Office or the EUIPO. 

Interestingly, the file mentioned an S Pen. The South Korean foldable phone maker has not yet included the said pen in any phones in the Z series. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to bear it.

It Could Be Another Name for the Rollable Phone 

Also, Samsung recently trademarked the “Z Roll” in Europe as well. Interestingly, the Z Slide carries the same description that the suspected rollable phone name has. So, the possibility of Z Slide being another name for the future rollable phone could also be a near possibility.

It could be that Samsung is preparing for both a rollable and a slidable smartphone. 

However, according to LetsGoDigital, Samsung — in its history — has sold almost all products that were trademarked commercially. 

On the other hand, GizmoChina noted that the Z Roll will have an extendable display that expands horizontally based on its trademark filing. The Z Slide will expand its screen vertically instead.

We could then be expecting two separate devices to launch in near future.
