With the rise of the Chinese smartphone brands eating the lunch of the top contenders in the smartphone industry like Samsung and Apple with the ‘value for money’ proposition, Samsung has been under pressure especially in the last year. Now that Vice Chairman Lee is out of the prison (had to face arrest warrants earlier), it’s apparent that major decisions would be made in the Samsung’s boardroom. Previously news was coming forth that the company might be merging the two flagship lines i.e Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines.
This would help Samsung to curb the manufacturing cost and would focus on the marketing of a single lineup. Previously, ever since Samsung started to announce two flagship smartphones each year, one in the Galaxy S and one in Galaxy Note series, there was a clear overlap between S+ phones and Note phones though if new decisions are made a reality as per the rumors floating around regarding the merger, then we might experience three smartphones in 2019 with Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10+ with a stylus probably.
Nothing of such sort is confirmed by the company officially, though these are the rumors and speculations that are worth considering. It seems that the Korean smartphone manufacturer is looking forward to considering realistic goals in addition to the merger and would focus on not losing the ground instead of running few unrealistic sales goals.
Would you prefer a Galaxy S10+ with a stylus or you’d rather prefer a separate Note branded Samsung flagship? Share your views in the comment section below.
