Samsung Galaxy is a series of mobile computing devices designed, manufactured and marketed by Samsung Electronics. The product line includes the Galaxy S series of high-end smartphones, the Galaxy Tab series of tablets, the Galaxy Note series of tablets and phablets with the added functionality of a stylus, and the first version of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, with later versions dropping the Galaxy branding.

Samsung Galaxy devices use the Android operating system produced by Google usually with a custom user interface called TouchWiz/Samsung Experience. This tradition was broken at CES 2016 with the announcement of the first Galaxy-branded Windows 10 device: the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S.[1]

The S7, S8, Note FE and Note8 Galaxy devices come with a file transfer app (Smart Switch) pre-loaded, with no app icon. Smart Switch works with all recent Galaxy devices, from the S2 through to current models.

Samsung Galaxy Gear[edit]

Samsung announced the Samsung Galaxy Gear, a smartwatch running Android 4.3, on September 4, 2013. The Galaxy Gear was Samsung's only smartwatch to feature "Galaxy" branding; later Samsung smartwatches use the Samsung Gear branding.

In a software update, Samsung replaced the operating system of the Galaxy Gear from Android to Tizen.


"Over the Horizon"[edit]

"Over the Horizon", Samsung's signature sound for its smartphone devices, is initially the only music stored in the music library of any new Samsung smartphone. Initially developed in 2011, by a team headed by Joong-sam Yun, Senior Designer at IT & Mobile Communications, the highly recognizable, distinctive jingle can be used as a ringtone, as a sound when the phone turns on or off, as well as a basic notification alert for messages. According to the Samsung Newsroom, "this musical arrangement is not just an audio file stored in the phone. Rather, it is a brand sound of Samsung Galaxy devices." While the basic composition of the six-note tune has not changed since its inception, various versions have been introduced as the product line evolved. Moreover, the song has been covered by various popular artists who have released their own arrangements and remixes of the song, such as Quincy Jones, Icona Pop, and various K-Pop artists.[54] In Samsung's U.S. registration of the trademark for the sound, it is described as "the sound of a bell playing a B4 dotted eighth note, a B4 sixteenth note, an F#5 sixteenth note, a B5 sixteenth note, an A#5 eighth note, and an F#5 half note."[55]
