Samsung has introduced to the world the Galaxy Hierarchy which makes perfect sense now what those "Y-M-W-R-S" stands for. Starting with the entry level Galaxy "Y", this segment is targeted for teenagers and youngsters who want to get their hands on their very first phone. Pretty much everything in this segment is in low resolution from the LCD screen to the camera.
Moving up one level, the Galaxy "M" is the "Magical" mid-tier level which is targeted at professionals in an attempt to lure Blackberry users to the Android platform. Specs include a larger LCD screen display, a more powerful 1 GHZ Processor, improved battery life and a higher quality camera.
Next up is the Galaxy "W" or "Wonder" tier which is to me the middle tier of the hierarchy which sports an 800x480 LCD display with a 1.4 GHZ Single Core Processor. Its specifications will be something that fits right in the middle and its not too cheap and not too flashy either.
One more rung up, the Galaxy "Royal" sports a powerful 1 Ghz Dual-Core Nvidia Tegra 2 Processor packed with a WVGA Super Clear LCD Touchscreen. Sounds fit for a royal king doesn't it?
At the top of the hierarchy is Samsung's Flagship Galaxy S series, with the latest Samsung Galaxy S II currently reigning as the supreme smartphone of the year. And there you have it. Samsung's hierarchy looks good and appears to cater for pretty much every market segment that you can imagine of. Well done Samsung. HTC has some serious competition in their hands!
