Samsung Galaxy W, Y, M Pro and Y Pro in pipeline

One higher end, one mid-tier and two youth targeted handsets

Samsung has obviously been pretty chuffed with its success in the smartphone arena of late, driven by the Galaxy S and S II models.

And so it isn’t planning on stopping there. In fact, the company has four more Galaxy smartphones lined up to launch at this year’s IFA in the first week of September.

These are the Galaxy W, Y, M Pro and Y Pro, so reports Electronista, and if the single letter names are confusing you, the site also provides a handy chart to decipher them.

The S designates flagship, R (“royal”) premium phones, followed by W (“wonder”) for other high-end models, M for mid-tier and Y for youth oriented handsets.

So the Galaxy W will be the top tech model of this quartet for folks who can’t push the boat out to an S II or Galaxy R. It’ll come with a 3.7 inch display, a 1.4GHz processor, and the usual TouchWiz/Android Gingerbread combo.

The Galaxy Y is the youth phone with a smaller screen, cheap price tag and bright colour schemes, no doubt with an emphasis on social networking (the Y Pro adds a keyboard for swift status updates).

And the Galaxy M Pro will be a BlackBerry style handset, also with a keyboard. There’s pretty much something for everyone.

Indeed, Samsung may have another trick up its sleeve, with other rumours pointing to the fact that it may also be planning to unveil a new Galaxy S.

This could be a giant 5 inch mini-tablet affair, in the style of the Dell Streak, or it could be the 3D version of the handset which has been rumoured for a little while now. That would go up against the Evo 3D from HTC, which is about to launch in the UK, and LG’s Optimus 3D which is already available.
