Samsung Follows Nokia’s Lead, Creates Simple Way to Classify Phones

August 14, 2011 No Comments

About two weeks ago Nokia announced their new, simpler way of classifying their phones through model number. It seems that others have decided to adopt similar strategies. Samsung has gone back to the drawing board and come up with their own simple system for naming their devices.

The phones will be divided into 5 different categories based on the class of the devices; ‘S’, ‘R’, ‘W’, ‘M’, and ‘Y’. The ‘S’ class will be Samsung’s top or flagship devices. The ‘R’ will take the second spot, being called their Royal/ Refined devices and will be between 300 and 400 EUR. The ‘W’ or Wonder class device will be between 200 and 300 EUR. ‘M’ class or Magical will be between 130 and 200 EUR. Lastly the entry level devices will be dubbed ‘Y’ class or Young-minded.

Aside from these methods of classification, Samsung is also implementing the word ‘Plus’, ‘Pro’ and ‘LTE’.

Devices followed by the word ‘Plus’ will be similar to the non plus model baring the same name but have enhanced features. ‘Pro’ will be an indication that the phone will have a QWERTY keyboard and ‘LTE’ will be 4G enabled.

I think Samsung has done a good job with creating a simpler way to determine the type of device by classifying it. The issue is, with remembering all the different systems for every phone manufacturer.
