Samsung is introducing seven new monikers to their smartphone branding so people can “simply identify the device designed to deliver the perfect experience for them”
The Inquirer reports that Samsung confirmed they will be adding four new smartphone sub-categories to the venerable Galaxy family of smartphones and tablets at the IFA 2011 show in Germany, nine days from today. Expanding on the successful Galaxy S series, the company will roll out new models that will be distinguished with the following suffixes: “R” for Royal/Refined, “W” for Wonder, “M” for Magical and “Y” for Young. As for the Galaxy S, the “S” stands for Super Smart, the South Korean company explained.
In addition, each model may be offered in three flavors, which will be denoted by adding “Pro”, “Plus” and “LTE” to their brand names. What are those about? Well, “Pro” means a physical QWERTY keyboard, “Plus” is for upgraded devices and “LTE”, as the name tells, means the device supports the fourth-generation Long-Term Evolution radio technology. Go past the fold for a quick list of the upcoming new phones.
All four smartphones will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, the company confirmed. The Samsung Galaxy R and W are coming soon with a 1.4GHz CPU and a 3.7-inch Super LCD touchscreen. The 9.7mm thick Galaxy M Pro (as in, a magical device with a physical keyboard) will sport a 2.6-inch display, the optical track pad and QWERTY keyboard. Ace-like Galaxy Y will be for the masses, featuring an 832MHz CPU and the Swype keyboard.
