The Galaxy Note branding could soon come to an end if reports are to be believed. Samsung is reported to abandon the naming scheme and instead merge the S and Note series.
After launching the Galaxy Note 9 in August of this year, the South Korean electronics company will switch to a new naming scheme for subsequent cell phones The Bell. In addition, Samsung has apparently been considering this change for over a year.
Is the Galaxy Note branding gone?
Changing an already established name is a pretty drastic move, but even more so in the very volatile smartphone market. After Apple, Samsung is perhaps the best-known mobile company in the United States, and both the S and the Note series are now basically the best-known names for most consumers. So, why will Samsung suddenly change that? The reason? Profitability deterioration
According to The Bell, smartphone saturation and delayed update cycles are the two key factors that are driving Samsung to radically change the names of its devices. The fact is, more people keep their devices for much longer, especially as the dividing line between midrange phones and flagship devices blurs increasingly.
Some midrange devices today are more than capable of mastering basic tasks. They get better processors, superior cameras and nicer screens ̵
How will Samsung merge the s and staves?
If Samsung breaks off the note series, it is not clear how it will merge it with the S-line. Will the S-naming scheme continue, or will Samsung introduce a new one? Would there still be a model with a S Pen? The biggest difference between the two series is the stylus, which has since been used exclusively for the Note line. Anyway, Samsung's alleged move could mean a drastic change for the smartphone landscape in general. Hopefully it will do it right, because any wrong move could give Apple the opportunity to conquer Samsung's core base.
