Galaxy S10 rumors about a name change confirmed by Samsung

Early Galaxy S10 rumors have suggested that Samsung might switch to a different name for its next flagship smartphone. Since it launched the Galaxy S9 this year, one would expect next year’s model to be called the Galaxy S10. However, rumors claim that this may not be the case, and now Samsung itself has confirmed those rumors.

Galaxy S10 rumors

Speaking to reporters at the Mobile World Congress 2018, the head of Samsung’s mobile division DJ Koh said that it’s a possibility that Samsung might not use the existing naming scheme for its next Galaxy S flagship device which is currently being referred to as the Galaxy S10 in the press.

This isn’t the first time we’re hearing this possibility but Samsung had never commented on it previously or any other Galaxy S10 rumors for that matter. This is the first acknowledgment, albeit a brief one, that Samsung is open to switching the naming convention for its Galaxy S flagship handsets next year.

When asked if the company has any plans to change the naming of the Galaxy Galaxy S model, Koh said that while Samsung will stick to the Galaxy brand, it has been thinking about “whether we need to maintain the S moniker or the numbering system.”

A recent rumor from an unverified source claimed that Samsung’s flagship S series could be called Galaxy X from next year. Koh’s comments echo this possibility as Samsung seems to be mulling either keeping the “S” moniker or the number. Whatever it ends up deciding, Samsung will stick with the Galaxy branding for next year’s flagship smartphone.

It goes without saying that we’ll hear countless Galaxy S10 rumors in the coming months. The next flagship smartphone from Samsung isn’t due for another year at least so it’s very soon to be sure about what it’s going to be called and what it’s going to offer.

What do you think should be the name of Samsung’s next flagship smartphone? Let us know your suggestions in the comments below.

before you update the guy like this, the models that you are going to rip out will explode in your hand because you are losing customers because of late update

Much better than Galaxy Milk or Milky Güey! 😂

Did anyone notice that they removed the Galaxy S9 script from the back of the phone? I’m not sure if that’ll change when it goes to carriers.

it will be called Galaxy S (2019), just like A8 (2018)

By the way, Mr. Koh did NOT confirm a name change. They are only thinking about it. This is far from being a confirmation. I might go to Greece on holiday next year. It doesn’t mean I will. The headline is very misleading once you read the content of the article itself.

I don’t think they’ll use X. It’s the Cupertino Copying Company that follows Samsungs lead. Plus the iPhone X is a commercial failure for Apple with only 50% sales targets reached and it’s being discontinued. Samsung wouldn’t want to be associated with a failure, so X will not be used, except for possibly a niche product like the foldable phone. Even then, I don’t think so.

Copying Apple? An x series Samsung phone has been rumoured far before Apple named their iPhone 10 the iPhone X.

Very true, but after the total mess the iPhone X has been commercially, they’ll probably not use it. Apple stole it, messed it up, so it’s probably not usable now.

Iphone x is the fastest , secure and apps are like 100% better than my note 8’s any app made by Samsung.

One thing I noticed – this forum people are ignorant , blind – likes every thing made by Samsung. Even when people comment when they will get Oreo for phone [x] – all of other downvote .. Off course Samsung need such followers .

This is a forum for Samsung users, not for people who are iFans pretending to own a Samsung. Don’t come here to complain. Stick with your Apple fan sites.

You mean, fast and secure like, if I send a basic text to any iOS 10/11 phone it will completely break it?
Or how about the hit and miss Face ID that just isn’t as good/fast and secure as a FPS…
I agree you need to get back to your Apple fan sites. Because you just look like an idiot here. Lol

Please don’t call Apple “secure” anymore after that text massage bug that breakes the phone in seconds…
And yes you have no other choice than reset it…
And if you don’t know, samsung is working on Galaxy X brand since years… (foldable smartphone)

Have you seen Samsung makes iPhone like wallpaper animation & gives extra layer in icon to make it like iOS icons?? Probably not. Because you are used to the lags in Samsung phones?

I think X is perfect because it actually rhyme with S… In terms of the naming it would be totally badass if Samsung named the next flagship the Galaxy X1….As in the regeneration and begining of a new decade for the great and constantly marvelling Samsung flagship devices… It will be more like the future ( X ) meets nostalgia ( 1 )… So that it will be like S1,S2,S3… for previous decade line and X1,X2,X3… for new decade line.. Now that will sound cool…;-)

No the S10 should be just purely Galaxy X. Roman numeral for 10.

Then S11 the XI the Roman numeral for 11.

LOL, literally just said this on the previous post. that’s a negative for S10 – SX is the best bet. S10 is just awful.

The second most popular motor vehicle in the United States, North America, and the entire world is the Chevrolet (Chevy) S10. The S10 name isn’t that bad.
