Samsung may rebrand its flagship smartphones starting next year

Samsung may soon put an end to the existing Galaxy S flagship branding. The company is reportedly mulling new naming schemes for its future flagship phones. The recently launched Galaxy S10 could be the last device to embrace the Galaxy S branding scheme. This alphanumeric naming system has been around since the first Galaxy S in 2009.

Galaxy Note series may get rebranded too

This is not the first time we’re hearing about Samsung mulling a new naming scheme for the Galaxy S series. Shortly after unveiling the Galaxy S9 at the Mobile World Congress 2018, DJ Koh, head of Samsung’s mobile division, had said that the company is open to switching to a new naming scheme. The Galaxy S10 did keep the existing naming system, but it could be the last device to do so.

Samsung believes that people may have a harder time pronouncing phones that end with 11, 12 and 13. “Samsung is aware that after the S10, people may not like the longer names that will come with two-digit numbers, if we stick to the current system,” Yonhap News Agency quoted a Samsung executive as saying. So, chances are that Samsung may rebrand the Galaxy Note series as well. The company is looking at options that can appeal to consumers. However, nothing has been decided yet.

Yeah I see no reason to rebrand. Don’t see how the names could be confusing to people. It’s totally stupid…

Why not just change from S to X on the regular modell and give note an N.
Next modell will be Galaxy X1, for note it will be Galaxy N1

Let them start again. Like galaxy s and note. Then s2 and note 2. And make the note foldable with s pen.

How about just naming them Galaxy and Note (or whatever else name the marketing department comes up with)? Why do we need a number after the brand? Compare it with the car industry. It’s not like BMW change the name of their 3-series just because it’s a new model year. It’s still a 3-series. You don’t say you own a BMW G20 3-series 2018 model. You say you own a 3-series. Period. Instead of saying you own the Note 11, you can just say you own a Note. If _anyone_ cares more about that phone and it’s specifications, you can… Read more »

they did that with the a series and it was confusing especially trying to search for related accessories on likes of amazon. A7 2017 or 2018 etc…???

I think the s10 is a good name and i would presume they may just merge the s & note series together. Given the note series over the last couple of years are pretty much the plus model with the spen functionality and maybe a slight upgrade in a small area.

Why they always produce 2 size of a phone?. I really hated more than 5.8″.

So they can appeal to the people who want a larger phone like me.

If you dont like anything above 5’8 then dont buy a phone bigger then that. Simple. Why complain about it?

S11 is ok.

I think they will not come with Galaxy A, Galaxy B or Note A, Note B.

“people may not like the longer names that will come with two-digit numbers, if we stick to the current system” For over a decade no one was bothered by Nokia’s 4 digit number schemes. And it’s not like anyone calls the phones by their entire name. No one says “I have a Samsung Galaxy S10”. They say “I have a Galaxy S10”. Or they say “I have am S10” and everyone already knows it’s a Galaxy. Just like when you said “I have a 3310”, everyone knows it’s a Nokia. There’s already brand awareness to the line. Ditching it will… Read more »

They can drop the “S” name for a start. I don’t have problems with numbers beyond 10. Just a simple Samsung Galaxy 11 is fine with me.
