Alongside the announcement of Samsung’s upgraded version of its Galaxy Ace smartphone comes news of another new handset which launched in South Korea yesterday.

The Samsung Galaxy M Style is a mid-range smartphone sporting a four inch Super AMOLED display and a slim form factor of 9.9mm. It comes packed with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, rather than the new Ice Cream Sandwich, and is powered by a 1GHz single-core processor.

It’s equipped with 4GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB) and sports dual cameras, with a VGA front-facing camera and a three megapixel snapper on the back. It also supports HD (720p) video recording.



Currently, the Galaxy M Style is only slated for release in South Korea where it launches in three colours: Platinum Silver, Blue Black, and Lavender Pink. Samsung also hasn’t confirmed whether it will receive an upgrade to the current operating system.

Touted as an “affordable” handset, the Galaxy M Style is available for approximately $500, substantially cheaper than the Galaxy Nexus. Though the specs aren’t particularly impressive, the big screen, small form factor and funky range of colours will undoubtedly help these to fly off the shelves.

Is it me or are Samsung try to confuse everybody by releasing as many designs as possible at the moment? I've got to be honest I've no idea what their current models are any more apart from the S2 and Galaxy Nexus. While its nice to have choice I'd rather they concentrate on the software of the existing models more? i.e. ICS on a few more models.

I agree but I also have the same issue with HTC and most of the others.
Too many models with no clear price, feature or name differentiation.

Not only do the names not reflect the features, they also vary across regions. Add to this that the features can vary across phones with the same model name in the same region (e.g The HTC Desire can have an OLED or S-LCD without any name change).

They have some new ranges now , M for Magic, U for ... etc. It's like GT GTS GTO GTX : )
Agree .... Joe Public does not have the time or indeed the inclination of picking up catalogues from orange,phones 4 u, t mobile, virgin,vodaphone, all containing glossy pictures and confusing "SOON AVAILABLE" sending the person into a mind boggling frenzy of which one to get or wait - or upgrade,,,,
HTC, and arguably Android as an OS, is successful because they flooded the market with handsets to the point where it was almost impossible not to buy a HTC phone. Samsung is clearly following suit. Sadly it's a case of quantity, not quality, with one or two exceptions.
