Just last week, Huawei filed applications to trademark some names which we believe are for future Honor smartphones. It has again applied for new trademarks but this time in Argentina, and they too are likely for future Honor devices.
The new trademarks can be grouped into three:
- 20A, 30A, 40A, and 50A which we believe are future models of the Honor A series whose latest member is the Honor 7A.
- 20X, 30X, 40X and 50X most definitely future models of the Honor X series which has the Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max as members.
- 20C, 30C, 40C, and 50C which should be successors of the Honor 8C.
Based on these trademarks, one can deduce that Huawei’s plan is to “unify” the naming scheme of its smartphones irrespective of whether they are released under the Honor or Huawei brands.
We don’t know if Huawei (read Honor) will start with these naming scheme next year but even if they do they won’t sync with next year’s Huawei P-series and Mate-series since they will be named P30 and Mate 30 while these new models will be starting with 20.
