I sincerely hope Samsung doesn't rechristen its flagship S series. The "S" series of phones is a tried & true offering that has withstood the test of time and quite literally risen like a phoenix from relative obscurity in 2010 to the pinnacle of the smartphone world.
Samsung has already had one renaming or more appropriately renumbering disaster in the form of the Note 7. We really don't need a repeat of that debacle. Rechristening and skipping numbers altogether isn't Samsung's forte. Don't do it.
Sony's X line...iPhone X...now even Samsung will be X? copy again?
If we consider the rumor a sort of reality, Then:
Samsung will do what it did with feature phone S Series that produced S alongside of X series and continued to 2007 which they focused more on smartphones.
Now There are Three scenarios:
1- Swap the S and Note series completely in favor of X series (most likely bendable phablets to tablets)
2- Keep S and Swap Note with X in order to refresh the messed up Note naming (Note, Note II, Note 3, Note 4, Note5, "Hop", Note7, Note8 [Note 8 with space = Tablet])
3- Do Quarter Game:
1st belong to S.
2nd belong to X.
3rd belong to Note.
4th belong to A.
and each year put the Number next to it, in order not to be confused by letter ending.
Galaxy S 2019, 2020, etc.
Galaxy X 2019, 2020, etc.
Galaxy Note 2019, 2020, etc.
Galaxy A 2019, 2020, etc.
If they put A series for Flat Series of Top performers, then
In this case they can fill the whole year by their variants.
January = S
February = S+
March = S Active
April = A mid ranger
May = X
June = X+
July = A mid range Tablet
August = A watch
September = Note
October = A high end Tablet
November = A
December = A+
If they do so, Customers will finally get what to be expect from each month.
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2018Moto X 2013 Xperia x 2016 Iphone x 2017 Galaxy x 2019 Take years to copy Xahhhh you missed the first xperia, X1 in 2008 with sliding screen and physical keyboard good ole days when it was still sony ericsson xD and phones actually having distinct designs.
Do you realize that Samsung was talking about the galaxy X since last year? Way before apple announced iPhone X?
Its gonna be the same war like with windows 10...
Only because Germans came up and said: "NAIN NAIN NAAAIN!"
Samsung always takes years of delay even to name their phones.
Nghtmare, 06 Feb 2018Samsung would be so much more famous and succesful if they didnt try to copy Apple in everythi... moreLmao Samsung called it "Galaxy X" months before Apple unveiled iPhone X, read a book.
Samsung would be so much more famous and succesful if they didnt try to copy Apple in everything they freaking do I swear.
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2018Moto X 2013 Xperia x 2016 Iphone x 2017 Galaxy x 2019 Take years to copy XX periea lol so Sony was the first
What is it that makes X such a "cool" letter to some people?? They be like: "X is such a cool letter! you know because X-men and.. you know it kinda looks like... I dont know, its cool you know.."
I think it is true because, Samsung's galaxy S series next year will be 10th anniversary.
So they will bring the the foldable phone to their series and they weren't going to release a new series of foldable phone because it'd steal the spotlight from the S series and the note series.
So in the end they will change the form factor of the general form factor of the current smartphones to flexible and bendable hardware because in the current smartphones reached their highest peak and all the companies are doing the same thing which is either change the design or give higher specs and that's why Apple is looking to do it and Sony too with micro-LED being on the way.
Apple had their 10th last year and Sony will have their 10th this year, so, these 3 companies are going to compete against each other harder.
