The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is among one of the most hyped smartphones for the Galaxy series. The original Nexus was to be a game changer in the phone industry, but it didn't exactly launch as well as some would have thought. The beauty in the Nexus lineup is that it is vanilla Android, no other bloatware running on top, which means the Nexus line up is among the first to have the latest and greatest version of Android.

The original Samsung Epic 4G was somewhat of a disappointment for customers, while others delighted in the changes it had from the original Galaxy S. The glaring difference was the inclusion of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, which is definitely a polarizing addition. The Epic 4G Touch is the follow up and the first U.S. release of the Galaxy S 2, and this time, it's not bringing a physical QWERTY keyboard with it.

It was reported before on the Samsung Galaxy News Blog that a hybrid phone / tablet would be on its way from Samsung. Originally, it was thought to be named the Samsung Galaxy Q, and now it seems like its actually been unveiled at the IFA. Named the Samsung Galaxy Note, the non-phone, non-tablet device is Samsung's latest invention for the Galaxy line up. It features a 5.3 inch screen and a stylus pen, merging the old school train of thought for smart devices while bringing in the newer designs of modern tablets. Some may consider this a really big smartphone or a really small tablet, so it will be interesting to see how well Samsung can market the device.

It looks like Wal-Mart and Tracfone will be offering the Samsung Galaxy Precedent, an entry level Android powered smartphone, with no contractual obligations attached. It's expected to be below $150, while still featuring Android 2.2, an 800 MHz processor and a 2 megapixel camera. It's not too bad for the price, and easily competes with the entry level LG Optimus line up that's offered on all major and regional carriers.

It looks like Samsung is changing up the ways they name and label their smartphones. They will be keeping the main names, Galaxy, Wave and Omnia, but will be adding letter designations based on the market they're going after. The Galaxy line will remains as the Android flagship, the Wave the Bada (Samsung's own OS) flagship and the Omnia will remain the Windows Phone 7 flagship names. The difference comes in the letters after the main name.
