Thins being said, “Galaxy” didn’t become a well known brand until a year after its release, in 2010, with the release of the Galaxy S, the first of the most successful range of Samsung phones ever.

- The product’s description: when the product is original, the seller well usually include the word “original” or “100% original” in the product description.
