Recent reports have revealed that the rumored Samsung smartwatch may be called the Galaxy Gear, while the flip Android handset we first saw in schematics may be known as the Galaxy Golden – and there are clear pictures for the Golden in the wild.

This isn’t the first time we hear the “Gear” name for the rumored smartwatch, but this time we’re talking about a trademark filed by the company.

The trademark has been found by Galaxy Club at the U.S Patent and Trademark Office, with the documentation having a July 29 filing date.

We have seen various Samsung smartwatch reports in the past days, with some of them revealing a patent application for the device and even a model number for the product, SM-V700.

The Galaxy Gear is confirmed to be a wearable device by USPTO:

[quote qtext=”Wearable digital electronic devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle capable of providing access to the Internet and for sending and receiving phone calls, electronic mails and messages; wearable electronic handheld devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle for the wireless receipt, storage and/or transmission of data and messages and for keeping track of or managing personal information; smart phones; tablet computers; portable computers.” qperson=”” qsource=”” qposition=”center”]

Samsung Galaxy Golden flip phone

Remember the Galaxy Folder, a flip Android phone that we saw in various leaks in the previous days? It looks like that’s not the final name of the product, if certain South Korean publications are to be believed.

The phone may be sold as the Galaxy Golden, and we also happen to have some fresh high-quality images of the device.

The phone is rumored to be launched in South Korea in mid August, and it’s not clear yet whether the handset will be released in other countries.

The Galaxy Golden is rumored to pack 3.7-inch Super AMOLED displays, 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor, LTE, NFC, Bluetooth and Android 4.2.

That said, nothing is official, as Samsung is yet to unveil these two new devices.
