Samsung is reportedly planning to launch as many as 10 Galaxy A Series smartphones in the first half of 2019. After the upcoming Galaxy M series, the South Korean company seems to have shifted strategy this year to compete with Chinese rivals like Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo and Honor. These largely operate in affordable and mid-range segment, and looking at tipped pricing for Galaxy M10, M20, it appears Samsung is looking to tap that segment in developing markets.
According to Sammnobile, Samsung is readying Galaxy A series smartphones with model numbers SM-A105, SM-A202, SM-A205, SM-A260, SM-A305, SM-A405, SM-A505, SM-A705 and SM-A905 to launch in the first six months of 2019. However, these devices reportedly won’t release in all markets globally. It is noted that Samsung would largely concentrate on Asian markets like India and China to counter competition with these new Galaxy A series smartphones.
Samsung, which has had huge success with J series in India, is all set to refresh its affordable and mid-range offerings with the new Galaxy M-series. The company is all set to launch the Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20 in the country on January 28. Last week, we were tipped off the pricing of two upcoming smartphones, and these clearly show company’s intent this year.
