The Samsung Galaxy J series will be replaced by "several" new lineups

The Samsung Galaxy J series will be replaced by

The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018), which will soon be followed by the Galaxy A6s and Galaxy A9s, marked the beginning of Samsung’s new smartphone strategy. But as confirmed by tipster Ice Universe earlier today, it seems the company's plans are much more complex than this.

Last month, a new report revealed that Samsung actually had plans to scrap its entry-level Galaxy J series entirely. Allegedly, the company would then replace it with a new set of Galaxy M-branded smartphones. But if the latest information is anything to go by, this series may not be alone. In fact, Samsung is said to have plans for “several” new smartphone lines, all of which will play a major role in Samsung's strategy in the smartphone market moving forward.

Reportedly, the Samsung Galaxy A series will continue to focus on providing a quality experience across different price points for a wide number of people. However, this will then be combined with the new lineups that are expected to cater towards more specific groups of consumers and markets. Also, as has been the case for a number of years now, these will then join the usual Galaxy S and Galaxy Note flagships, in addition to the foldable Galaxy F once it launches in early 2019.

Presently, Samsung’s new devices are expected to begin popping up towards the very end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019. In the meantime, if recent information is accurate, it’s worth noting that Samsung’s Galaxy J series is actually ending with the company’s most recent releases, the Galaxy J4+ and J6+.

Am I the only person sick and tired of a million different galaxy phones? No wonder we are being overcharged for phones nowadays. Too many darn phones with way too little differences if any at all.

I agree. I'm a Samsung fan, and even I get confused and overwhelmed with the amount of lines Samsung likes to make. It's really not necessary, it confuses the consumers, and it's like you said, most of the time there aren't any real differences between them. Sometimes they just change the name, but the hardware continues being the same as it was before.

I agree, the line up is getting convulted. Doesn't the J series sell very well?. They should just stick to the current line up J: budget A: mid range S and note:high end

Hopefully it won't be a regression to the s4 days where they had so many niche models like the zoom, mega, mini, core etcetc
