I know the Galaxy SIII is much liked but Samsung, you're taking things with the same design too far. Sometimes, some people want something fresh and different.

I have to agree, this is greed at best. What Samsung is doing is milking the success of the S3 with 25 different variants selling with mediocre specs at best.

S3 Mini, should have had at least an Exynos 5 Dual or Exynos 4412 Quad at best with at the very least, a qHD or 720P display. The S2 Plus, pointless when an update for the original makes more sense, coming to think of it, JUST STICK WITH THE S2.
The Galaxy Grand I understand is a Note junior, but with such a poor screen res, low amount of RAM and inevitably just another GS3 clone this really makes no sense unless the screen is 720p AMOLED, the battery is 2500 MAH and the processor is an Exynos Quad or Dual at the very least. The Galaxy Premier/Pop, why? Grand DUOS/Pocket Plus don't even deserve a mention.

This is what should be proposed for the 2013 lineup:
A True IPhone 5 competitor in the form of a Galaxy S4 Mini with a 5440 Quad core processor, screen size from 4-4.3 inch 720p LCD 3 or AMOLED display and market it as the start up model as opposed to the Galaxy Y DUOS. I can see why Samsung wouldn't want to do this seeing as this would steal the sales off their flagship S4.

The Galaxy Grand should be marketed as a mid range device with specs to match, 5 Inch
720p with expandable storage, Exynos Quad Core clocked at 1.4 ghz with two different variants, 5 inch and 4.7 inch models thrown in with the S-Pen.

The high end will be the GS4/Note 3 and Galaxy Camera 2 and the tablet range varying from 8/10/12 inch models, the 8 inch being the budget range model with respectable specs and and the 12 inch being the premium end.
