Samsung Smartphones with Sly Names

August 25, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Nomenclature is a significant scientific branch which is embraced by scientists all over the world for naming various flora and fauna. No…We are not trying to teach you science here, but rather the naming strategy of a major electronics company.

Samsung Electronics has adopted a unique (which most of the mobile names are) way of naming their phones, especially the Galaxy brand. The Korean company has decided to categorize their phones into 5 groups: S stands for Super Smart, R for Royal/Refined, W for Wonder, M for Magical and Y for Young.

They have also announced four new smartphones in the above range. There are also three tag names: Pro, Plus and LTE.

‘Pro’ phones will have physical QWERTY keyboards, ‘Plus’ devices will be upgraded versions and LTE will be 4G devices. Samsung said that they are taking steps to ensure that users can simply identify the device designed to deliver the perfect experience to them.

The newly announced phones, W, M Pro, Y and Y Pro under the Galaxy brand, will be running Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. Galaxy W will be in the middle of the range with 1.4 GHz processor, sporting a 3.7 inch super LCD touchscreen, whereas, the Galaxy Y Pro will come with Think Free mobile office along with a QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen.

The 9.97mm thick Galaxy M Pro will be more like Samsung’s version of a BlackBerry designed for professionals and will be sporting a 2.6-inch touchscreen, full QWERTY keyboard and an optical trackpad. Galaxy Y, which might be slotted down as a budget Android Smartphone, will be similar to the Galaxy Ace and will be having an 832MHz processor and will feature Swype keyboard.

The company will be unveiling these four phones at the IFA 2011 taking place in Germany. Sure seems to be a whole package of goodies to look forward to.
