  1. Thanks for sharing this with us. I didn’t know that and I’m the designer of that S. It was a worldwide all agency call from Samsung HQ in Korea to design the S and mine design was picked. I used the curves from the existing Samsung elipse logo to create the curves and connected them forming the S. It’s no longer in use though. But here is more behind the meaning/reason for Galaxy and the S.

    Super Smart may have been what Samsung said it stood for but it was really a marketing tactic to separate Samsung’s top tier premium device from their lower tier devices. The use of Galaxy was by design as well because it started with a G. It was a plan to turn the conversation from Apple Vs. Android to Apple Vs. Samsung. Apple later had the 3G and then the 3GS which referred to faster networks. Samsung then had the Galaxy S III which was often referred to as the GS3 for short and so on down the line. Apple 3GS Vs. Samsung GS3. Apple 4GS Vs. Samsung GS4 etc. This tactic was really what set the Galaxy S devices apart from other Android devices and had everyone asking Apple or Samsung.
