Samsung reportedly readying a brand new series of smartphones

At the end of October, Samsung introduced the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 (pictured above), both part of a new series of handsets called Galaxy A. This joined Samsung’s existing series: Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Pocket, Galaxy Mega, and so on. Samsung certainly has the largest number of Android smartphone models in history, having launched more than 100 different models since 2009 (when the original Samsung Galaxy was released). Now, according to SamMobile, the South Korean giant is getting ready to introduce yet another new smartphone range - presumably based on Android, though we can’t be sure of that just yet.

While there aren’t too many details on this, it’s said that the new series will have a “single letter naming convention” - just like the Galaxy A - and should be revealed "soon." Well, we’re all for simplicity when it comes to smartphone names, especially since Samsung has had quite a few handsets with really long names like Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, or Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD.

Recently, we heard that Samsung’s next Galaxy S flagship - possibly called Galaxy S6, and expected to be released in early 2015 - would be designed from scratch, being codenamed Project Zero to signal a brand new beginning. Perhaps the new series that we’ve mentioned above will be introduced at about the same time? Let’s wait and see.

Wonder what Samsung is up to. If anything the chance of the Galaxy S6 coming sooner than we thought just shot up.

Though I really think Samsung and Android would benefit greatly from some freshness, I have not been impressed with the small changes that resulted in the Galaxy Alpha and A series. So, I guess I'll believe it when I see it. I'm skipping the Note 4 / Edge because they are not available on my carrier other than as locked down garbage. Not to mention that they are full of gimmicks (I don't consider the "edge" to be a gimmick, but the S-Pen is largely a gimmick as is the heart monitor, oxygen sensor, UV sensor, etc). So maybe Samsung will start unlocking phones and there will be an S6 in my future. With a camera button, if I had my druthers.

So I guess you consider the features you dont use as gimmicks?

Hardly. I have a Note 3 and a Note 8 with S-Pen. And having used it for a long time, I can safely say it is mostly a gimmick. And then we have things like the heart monitor, oxygen sensor, UV sensor which are widely regarded as gimmicks.

Yes, of course a pen is a gimmick for people who need to take notes a lot. Of course it is...

Because you don't have a Note, you don't understand that making a bunch of notes using S-Note/S-Pen and not being able to import these into a PC/Mac app in vector/editable form really really really sucks. I have made hundreds of documents (multiple page notebooks) using S-Note. And it's all dead content because it is basically locked into S-Note. So yes, I consider features that have a shallow implementation that don't truly solve the needs of customers such as myself to be gimmicks. If Apple came out with a high resolution pen-based pad/phablet, I would dump my Note 3 and Note 8 in the trash and never look back. I'm sick of Samsung's shallow features and emphasis on gimmicks. And I might note that of course features are subjective. There may be a hypochondriac that needs to take their pulse every minute. But should Samsung put a feature on every single mainstream phone they make to satisfy these people? Maybe not.

The problem is they already make to many phones. The Galaxy should be on 2 models, the S and Note. The other phones shouldn't be called Galaxy.

Galaxy S Pro Mega Tab 4G LTE Touch 600, Galaxy S Pro Mega Note 4G LTE Touch 400 (AT&T only), Galaxy S Pro Mega Tab Epic Nexus WiMAX Touch 600 (Sprint only), and of *course* the Galaxy S5 Mega Note 300, which actually turns out to be an IS-95-only flip phone.

Samsung coming up with new phones that have new names. This isn't news anymore: it's just the norm.

What they should do is stop releasing those phones with QHD displays. Their stance to price them the same as the Moto G is even more ridiculous.

What I don't understand is why isn't the Alpha apart of the Galaxy A lineup...

i thought they are thinking of cutting down their plethora of smartphone series? then now another new? If this means that 2016 will be something different, then please make it so

I just hope none of them are called "One". It was a stupid name to begin with and it's been used far more than it should've been in the last couple of years.

Two things Samsung can do improve phone sells. 1. Do like Motorola use stock instead of touch wiz. 2.stop using half baked ideas like that finger print scanner .

Did anyone see that guy behind those chicks? That's me, just looking what phones do they have.

I do that all the time. Glad my wife knows me. Plenty a quick look at an attractive female has been covered by the fact I know what phone she is using.....
