It is not new that Samsung has a really complicated lineup of devices for the mid and budget category. You have the Galaxy ON, J and C series among others each having numerous devices under their bunker. Even these names are followed by the confusing suffixes like a star, plus, pro etc. among others.
It seems that even Samsung has acknowledged this fact, and if the leaked details are to be believed, the company is planning to consolidate their entire mid and budget range of devices under a single brand lineup with the Galaxy M series tipped to be the possible name for the lineup.
The Galaxy M is expected to be the successor to the existing Galaxy On, Galaxy J and Galaxy C series of devices.
The report started circulating after the recent held Samsung Developer Conference where the company showcased their long-awaited foldable Galaxy Infinity Flex smartphone and their revamped UI, the One UI, which seems like a welcoming step from the company to declutter their long-in-use TouchWiz UI.
The Galaxy M series is expected to carry a two-digit number accompanying the letter M in their naming convention. With the initial devices expected to be named the Galaxy M30 and M60, which seems to be a rip-off of LG’s V series’ nomenclature.
The devices of the Galaxy M series are expected to carry Samsung’s award-winning IPS LCD displays, with the industry-leading AMOLED technology expected to make an appearance only in the highest model of the series. The devices are expected to carry up to 64GB of storage, with the device carrying AMOLED being the only exception, which may comes with 128GB of internal storage.
So far, the only devices that have been leaked from the series are the SM-M205F and the SM-M305F. It would be no surprise that the company may indeed be having several devices in the pipeline.
As of now, there is not much information available regarding these devices, as there are no leaked specs also. Even there is no expected launch window in sight. It would, however, make sense for Samsung to either release these devices by the end of this month to ensure their availability in time for the holiday season or showcase them early next year.
