It had to be translated from two different languages, but a road map from Lithuanian retailer Mobili linija has surfaced that appears to outline some big new devices that Samsung has waiting in the wings.

Well, some of them are big, anyway. The report reveals a number of entry-level devices that will pad Samsung’s portfolio, but at the top of the heap is the GT-I9250. Running on Ice Cream Sandwich, it sports an impressive 4.65-inch Super AMOLED display running at 1280 x 720 and a pixel density that rivals even the iPhone 4. No word yet on what kind of horsepower it’s got under that hood, but considering the phone’s other specs, it won’t leave users wanting for much more.

The GT-I9220 retains its brother’s high resolution Super AMOLED display, and crams all those pixels into a pocket-busting 5.29-inch screen. The I9220 also sports an 8-megapixel camera and a 1.4 GHz processor, but is left to make do with Android 2.3.3. Rounding out Samsung’s 9200 series is the I9210, another Gingerbread phone with a 4.5-inch, 800 x 480 display and support for 4G — a solid device by any measure, but it’s made to look shrimpy compared to its brethren.

Not ones to give up easily, Samsung engineers also seem to be working on two new Bada devices: the entry level S5380, and the flagship S8600 (codenamed “Wave III”). Bada device sales have been surprisingly brisk, but unlike their Android offerings, Samsung’s Bada seems unlikely to pick up much traction in the U.S.

Samsung’s plan of saturating each mobile market segment seems to be continuing unabated. The original road map has been pulled from Mobili linija’s site, but the cached version still works for all of you that want to dig further into Samsung’s plans.
