The names of top Samsung smartphones can be very confusing
The South Korean firm released its first 5G phone, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, at the beginning of this year, and many others are on the way.
“Samsung Galaxy S10 5G”, I think we can all agree, not the best of product names. But this is clear and does an excellent job of differentiating the 5G version of the S10 from the non-5G versions of the phone.
Nevertheless, it seems that Samsung is not convinced that the “fifth-generation” label at the end of the phone name is enough.
The South Korean giant started asking SmartLab Plus customer research users to select a “most memorable” name from the following list (via SamMobile):
- Samsung Galaxy S10 Pro
- Samsung Galaxy S10 Performance Edition
- Samsung Galaxy S10
- Samsung Galaxy S10 Pro Edition
- Samsung Galaxy S10 Speed Edition
- Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
Yes, there are some serious abominations.
- 50x zoom was impressive? 2020 could blow up …
- Will the iPhone 11 copy the Samsung Galaxy Note feature?
- Top 14 Best Highest Megapixel Camera Phones in 2019
Version 5G of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will probably be presented on August 7, and if Samsung decides that the second option from this list is the best, we could soon talk about … a deep breath – Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Performance Edition.
For all Twitter users, “Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Performance Edition” will use up to 17% of your 280 character limit.
No matter how ridiculous, let us all pray that this does not happen.
5G phones are currently rare, but once they enter the mass market, technical companies will no longer have to break the “5G” in product names. This, however, may take a couple of years. And until that happens, we can count on a stream of very attractive, very expensive products, cursed by some terribly cumbersome names.
