a new Samsung trademark application in the UK suggests the company may be working on trendy skins for its phones, as reported by android headlines and let’s go digital. The UK Intellectual Property Office app describes “protective and decorative films adapted for smartphones”, using the name “Fashion Film”.
This does not confirm that it will follow a real product (you can see other trademarks of Samsung to know how many are never used). Still, any signs that the company is taking a step into the skin accessory market are noteworthy. Currently, the space is mainly occupied by smaller companies such as Dbrand, which has even presented its product in samsung stores. And while the trademark application doesn’t specify a particular phone that these skins would be compatible with; They can be great alternatives for anyone who wants to opt out of a phone case for an easily changeable look.
Samsung Bespoke Edition Announced smartphones for its Galaxy Z Flip 3 in October that will also allow owners to change the color of their phone using a small line of color options for $79. Dieter Bohn argued that Samsung’s promotion of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 as a stylish option, rather than emphasizing powerful specs, represented a change in what devices can communicate about their owners, and selling swappable skins would be another acknowledgment of that.
In response to a request for comment on this news, Dbrand CEO Adam Ijaz said the edge, “lmao ‘fashion movie’.”
