Samsung Reveals New Android Smartphones and Naming Scheme

Recommended Posts


Samsung has revealed a slew of new Android Gingerbread smartphones, all named under the new naming scheme which should make it easier to discern which phone does what by looking at the name alone.

Now, when you hear about a Samsung Galaxy phone, this is what the letters in the name mean: S means “Super Smart” and denotes a flagship device, while R stands for “Royal” or “Refined”, and denotes a premium model, just below the S class. W stands for “Wonder”, which translates to a high quality, mid-level device; M means “Magical” and denotes a mid-to-low-level smartphone, while Y stands for “Young”, meaning an entry-level device.

Additionaly, Pro indicates the device includes a physical QWERTY keyboard, Plus means the device is an upgrade from an existing model, while LTE means that the device supports LTE (Long-Term Evolution) standard, which enables very fast data transfer.

This makes our job easier: if we tell you that Samsung has released four new Android smartphones: Galaxy W, Galaxy M Pro, Galaxy Y and Galaxy Y Pro, you already know what that means, right?

We’ll add some details, though: The Galaxy W sports a respectable 1.4 GHz Processor, HSDPA connectivity and a 3.7″ touch screen. Samsung hasn’t revealed the precise specs of the other three devices, except a couple of tidbits here and there: the Galaxy Y is powered by a 832MHz CPU, while the Galaxy M Pro is very thin at only 9.97 mm.

All the devices will be officially unveiled at the IFA trade show held in Berlin from 2 to 7 September 2011.
