Samsung launched the new Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) with triple rear cameras and will soon be launching the Galaxy A6s and Galaxy A9s phones. According to a new leak, Samsung may scrap its entry-level Galaxy J series entirely and will replace it with a new set of Galaxy M-branded smartphones.
Rumours suggest that Samsung may launch “several” new smartphone lines which will help it grab a bigger market share in emerging markets. The Samsung Galaxy A series will provide a quality experience across different price points however the company’s new line-ups are expected to cater towards more specific groups of consumers and markets.
Samsung’s new range of devices are expected to start launching over the next couple of months and will continue till early 2019. Samsung’s Galaxy J series is expected to end with its recent releases, the Galaxy J4+ and J6+. Reports about a new Galaxy P and Galaxy R series have also been making the rounds for a while now.
The Galaxy J series will disappear and several new alphabet series will be born. Starting in 2019, Samsung will adopt a new smartphone strategy.— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) October 2, 2018
“The J-series is being integrated into the A-series. We are rewriting mid-to-low-end brands and product strategies,” an industry official stated. “They will reportedly be priced very competitively so that Samsung can effectively compete against its Chinese rivals in key markets such as India, Latin America and in China itself where its market share has eroded to below one per cent”.
