Yes, Samsung does have their own proprietary connector for their data cables/power cords. They do have several types (at least 3 that I know of from my previous/current Samsungs), but they are now suppose to start coming out with phones using Micro USB connectors. On the Samsung Mythic and Flight from AT&T, they do come with a standard Micro USB connector instead of their proprietary ones.
As for the name, they have 2 USB ones with the SAMSUNG S20-Pin connector, a M20-Pin connector and an older 18-pin one which had a USB or a 9-pin serial COM port connector.
Samsung S20-Pin USB (APCBS10UBE)
Samsung M20-Pin USB (PCB200UBE)
Samsung 18-Pin w/USB (PCB115UBEB)
Samsung 18-Pin w/9-Pin Serial COM Port connector (PCB093LBE/PCB113LBE)
Samsung Micro USB (APCBU10BBEB) [for newer phones such as the Mythic/Flight]
If you feel that you have to correct some of my posts for my capitalization of some of my words, then just bear with it. It's just a discussion forum where some may be limited by time to answer in well-versed and eloquent sentences.

When asked if I see the glass half empty or half full, I responded I see just a glass of water.
Now you know how I think.
