Exclusive: Samsung Galaxy O series of smartphones is coming

Last year, we exclusively reported about the existence of Galaxy A, Galaxy E, and Galaxy J series of smartphones from Samsung. Now, we have information regarding an new series of smartphones from the South Korean smartphone giant.

According to the exclusive information that we’ve received recently, the company is currently working on two new smartphones, the SM-G550 and the SM-G600, and they’ll be released under the Galaxy O series. The SM-G550 will most probably be named Galaxy O5, while the SM-G600 will be named Galaxy O7. Currently, we don’t have any further information about these devices, be it regarding their specifications  or the time frame of their possible announcement.

Starting late 2014, Samsung started improving their smartphone nomenclature by grouping all its new launches under new series named after alphabets. We hoped that Samsung would tidy up its smartphone lineup and control the number of smartphones that it releases each year, but it doesn’t appear to be so. After the announcement of the Galaxy O series, Samsung would have 6 series of smartphones, Galaxy J, Galaxy E, Galaxy A, Galaxy O, Galaxy S, and Galaxy Note, which is still too much for consumers to handle.

Let’s hope that the Galaxy O series comes with a new design as it would be easier for consumers to remember and differentiate them from other smartphones made by Samsung.

Update: Looks like the Galaxy Mega and the Galaxy Grand series of smartphones aren’t dead after all.

Today, we’ve came across two new smartphones from Samsung, the Galaxy Mega On and the Galaxy Grand On, and they have the same model numbers that we reported as Galaxy O series earlier this week. Looks like Samsung has decided to name the SM-G600 as Galaxy Mega On, while the SM-G550 has been named the Galaxy Grand On.

We know that we reported these smartphones as Galaxy O series, but this happens when come across devices that are at very early stages of development. Things change internally and brands decide to rename things, similar to what happened with Project Orbis. The smartwatch was renamed from Gear A to Gear S2, and was teased last week after the announcement of the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+.

Well, Nokia did the same in her prime and look what happened. With so much clutter in phones it is no wonder customers look elsewhere to find their phone. Within all those 50-odd models, they still don’t have a flagship with removable battery and SD…

Just look at the versions of the S-line.
Multiple colors (black/white/emerald/blue/gold at least)
32-64-128GB
S6
S6 Edge
S6 Edge+
S6 Active
S6 Note (FKA Note 5. Yes, pun intended)
S6 Mini (to be expected of course)
S6 Plus (to be expected of course)
And then we only have the current S-series with 100+ variations.

The S4 and S5 are still available in a plethora of configurations as well. Don’t forget not all those phones have the same processor and/or RAM, so when you think it is a S6, it could be something less high-end. The Mini-series are notable for just milking the S-line brand and not being anything special.

Like girlfriends, clothes, cars, wines and beer….. You Can Never Have Too Many!!! :D

Basically Samsung makes so many different model phones……. Simply Because They Can “Just Do It” like No Fruity iTrinket Maker Can!!! ;)

Here’s hoping this Galaxy ^o^ turns out to be Folding Wallet….. Galaxy Series!

lol….. I just love it when some fools get upset about SAMSUNG *** being able to literally and easily turn out so many models for Greatest Choice. Who needs or wants to buy, use and wear the same old CrApple Every Day? I say Chairman Mao would have been proud of Apple Design House, only capable of putting ONE and now barely two models. Just too afraid to disappoint greedy share holders, that are abandoning them for Greener Pastures! :D

Samsung is throwing Apple under the proverbial “School Bus” and reeducating them Gangnam Style and if you don’t know what that is? …..just think of Elitist Richy Rich’s being thumped to the curb by the most diverse assortment of Global Companies, that all together form Samsung Group Global Conglomerate. Like their name…… SAMSEONG…… literally meaning Three Stars. Lee Byung-chull at the inception of the company name it, with the idea of South Korea and SAMSUNG Family Chaebol of companies, one day becoming extremely powerful and ever-lasting as are stars in the skies!

They may not be just a bunch of Gypsy Barker Con Artists, out to make the greatest profits off their iSheeple iDiot Cult Followers, but they do bring the Greatest and Most Diverse Assortment of Products and Services on the Planet!!! ;)

Well, the code name for the Edge+ was O2, maybe the O5 is a 5 inch curved display and the O7 a tablet with a curved display.

Add to that all the variations of EACH model depending on the market. Up to a point makes sense, but Samsung takes it as far as switching CPU or RAM size on the SAME model. One of the (many) things I won’t miss leaving Samsung for a brand that actually listens to what people want.

Feek me how many phone does Samsung need it’s no wonder the software support for the note 4 was so absmal.

I think instead of GOOGLE, SAMSUNG should have opted the name of their company’s mobile division as “ALPHABET”. It would have justified their efforts of flooding the mobile market with so many variants.
