Samsung announced today that it will be launching four new Galaxy smartphones together with a completely revamped naming strategy for these and future devices.

This "simplified" system of naming smartphones will group Samsung's upcoming devices into five distinct classes from entry-level phones ("Y") all the way to premium models ("S"). Each class will be represented by a different letter and additional indicators (such as "Pro", "Plus", and "LTE") will be used to identify the "specific functionality" of that device.
