I guess you could split most galvanic cells into one of those two categories. But one must also consider how the electrolytes interact if they are not the same (ion exchange through a salt bridge, membrane, frit etc.)

It's also possible to have a solid electrolyte...

Yes, you can have a galvanic cell with only one electrolyte chamber that holds both electrodes.
