Samsung has revealed that it is scrapping its Galaxy J Series lineup, effectively making the Galaxy A series the new front-runner for its mid-range market segment. The confirmation comes from Samsung Malaysia’s official YouTube channel; it was through a promotional video for the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 that launched recently.
The Samsung Galaxy J series was originally introduced for the budget segment in the smartphone market. As time went by, Samsung needed to create something new and innovative to overcome stiff competition from the likes of Xiaomi and Huawei. To that end, Samsung created the Galaxy A series and began phasing out the Galaxy J series.
As a comparison, the Galaxy A series devices are priced more competitively. Further, the devices also possess flagship features such as a triple camera setup, in-display fingerprint sensor, and Super AMOLED Infinity display.
At this current moment, the Galaxy A series comprises the Galaxy A10, A20, A30, A50, and A70. Samsung is expected to launch more devices during the “A Galaxy Event” on 10 April. That includes the rumoured Galaxy A90. We’ll keep you updated on the product when it launches, so stay tuned.
