Samsung recently launched the Galaxy S21 series in the global markets with the Galaxy S21 starting in India at Rs 69,999.
Amid an extravagant global launch, it seems that the South Korean tech giant seems to have discontinued the Galaxy S20 series in a hush-hush manner.
As per a GizmoChina report, the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and the S20 Ultra are out of stock on Samsung’s India website and the case is the same in the UK and China.
Missed out on a good deal
This seems to be bad news for customers who were vying for a good deal on the older generation of Galaxy S series models, however, they can still try to get a bargain from third-party sellers who might still be selling the Galaxy S20 smartphones.
It has been only a few days that the Galaxy S21 series has been launched and in a matter of days, the Galaxy S20 series is out of stock! Call it coincidence but many would pivot towards the possibilities that Samsung has discontinued the Galaxy S20 smartphones.
There is also a possibility that these sellers might have refurbished units of the Galaxy S20 series.
Only S20 FE available
If you go to Samsung’s official website you will see that only the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is available as opposed to the other three S20 phones in the lineup. This is not surprising considering that the FE was announced only a couple of months ago.
With this move, Samsung may be looking to push its recently launched S21 series in the global markets considering that the device has been launched at a competitive starting price of Rs 69,999. In this price range, it competes directly with the likes of the Apple iPhone 12 Mini and the LG‘s swivelling smartphone, the LG Wing.
