We have already seen Samsung apply for a few Gear related trademarks, like the Samsung Gear VR mark and another for the Samsung Gear Store. Samsung is clearly interested in building out a complete ecosystem based on Gear devices. The latest trademark to be added to the mix is the “Samsung Gear S”. Like the previous applications, the description regarding application of the mark is very general and casts a wide net over most any wearable device or related accessory.
Although the description may not be much help in figuring out what device this latest trademark may be meant for there could be a clue in the name. There are some who think the S is a reference to “Solo” which would be a variant of the Samsung Gear 2 that has an onboard SIM card and cellular connectivity instead of relying on a connection to a user’s smartphone.
