A decade ago, Samsung released a phone called Galaxy with no S with Google’s brand new operating system Android. Today the design may not look so impressive but at that time, it was the only brand to compete the iPhone, making the glorious ten years of being unbeaten by so many other smartphone vendors. The small device, with the model number GT-I7500, sported a 3.2″ 320×480 AMOLED display, 528MHz single-core CPU, 128MB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, a 5MP camera, GSM/HSDPA support, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. In back 2009, its headphone jack was the Galaxy’s selling point. It came out with Android cupcake 1.5 but got an update to 1.6 only in few regions a year later.
In 2010 it becomes the Galaxy S, the bigger, faster, and better smartphone than its predecessor. It reached to more countries and consumers but it was 2009’s device which laid the foundation for the uprising future of the galaxy series. Since Galaxy S3, Samsung stuck with a more unified design across carries and brought more consistency and persistence in the consumer’s minds. Later on, the devices were equipped with IP-rating like water and dust resistance, which were actually initiated by the galaxy. The Galaxy Note series was an enormous success with its gigantic display – 5.3-inch. It may seem not big enough for Note right now but back in time, it was considered a milestone.
For years, Samsung has brought so many innovative ideas in the mobile industry to life. It truly deserves to hold the number one position in the Android devices.
