Rumours surfacing around that Samsung could discontinue the Galaxy J series and launch a new Galaxy R and Galaxy P series. The Galaxy On and Galaxy C series would also be discontinued.
According to rumours coming from China, Samsung is planning to end the Galaxy J series of mid-range devices, responsible for much of the company’s sales. In addition, the Galaxy On and Galaxy C series would also come to an end.
According to the rumour, which was published on Twitter by a leaker and spotted by SamMobile, mentioned that Samsung could launch a new series in China: Galaxy R and Galaxy P.
It has also been said that Galaxy P will be Samsung’s first ODM smartphone. An ODM (Original Design Manufacturer) is when a company manufactures a device that will receive the brand of another company, which will sell the product.
That is, the model will not be designed and produced on Samsung’s own facility, but will be marketed by it. South Korean giant does not usually do this, so this would be a big change. There are rumours that this series is scheduled for Q3/Q4.
As for the closure of the Galaxy J series, it is still unclear whether this will occur only in China or in all markets where these devices are available. Samsung has already shown that it is willing to tinker with its strategy in China, where its market share has been reduced to alarming levels.
