Samsung today unveiled its new naming scheme for its Galaxy range of smartphones. According to the new scheme, smartphones will be categorized under five alphabets – S (flagship, supersmart), R (royal, refined, premium), W (wonder,  high-end), M (magical, mid-end) and Y (young, entry-level). We are not entirely convinced this new naming scheme would make things any easier. For instance, it isn’t clear how R and W series are different from each other. And there’s more: device names can have a plus affixed to them to indicate it is a feature update of an existing model; pro to indicate a physical QWERTY keypad and LTE, well, to indicate LTE connectivity. Samsung today also introduced four Android 2.3 smartphones in the Galaxy Series – Galaxy W, Galaxy M Pro, Galaxy Y and Galaxy Y Pro smart – that will be unveiled during IFA next week.
