All new Samsung flagship phones i.e., Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus phone launch are around the corner. Both phones are expected to be launched on February 25 at Mobile World Congress (MWC 2018) event in Barcelona, Spain. These could be the final Samsung flagship phones in the ‘Galaxy S series’ as the South Korean electronics giant is planning to scrap ‘Galaxy S Series’ in favor of ‘Galaxy X Series‘ from 2019. It’s just the naming convention that is expected to change from next year.
Talks of upcoming Samsung Galaxy S series phone never ends. As a known naming convention, the 2019 Galaxy S flagship phones might be called as Galaxy S10 and S10+. According to latest reports from a South Korean source, the ‘Galaxy S series’ will be renamed as ‘Galaxy X Series’. This is to get rid of unconventional device naming such as S11, S12, or Galaxy S15.
Similarly, there is ‘Galaxy Note Series’ which right now has the flagship Note 8 and Note 9 is expected to launch later this year. By 2019, Samsung has to launch the Galaxy Note 10.
Apple has already done it by naming their flagship smartphone of 2017 as iPhone X and in 2018, the Cupertino tech giant has planned to launch iPhone X Plus and iPhone XE phones at fall 2018 event.
Samsung is planning to launch a foldable phone this year and it’s a known fact that it will be called as ‘Galaxy X’. That again brings us to contradiction whether the upcoming Samsung Galaxy flagship phones will have a foldable display or not. Again, considering the sources, take this information as a pinch of salt as nothing is official from the house of Samsung. Stay tuned for more information.
The following phones are scheduled to release:
- Galaxy X
- Galaxy X Plus
- Galaxy X1
- Galaxy X1 Plus
- Galaxy X Note
