    Samsung may reduce the Galaxy A series to fewer models in 2024

    It looks like the (misleading) rumors about the Galaxy S24 series dropping one of the three models didn't come alone. More reports are coming in regarding Samsung's alleged smartphone strategy for 2024, and one such report suggests that the company will want to trim down its Galaxy A series.

    Assuming that this rumor turns out to be correct, the Galaxy A24 won't have a successor next year. Samsung will supposedly release the Galaxy A15, Galaxy A35, and Galaxy A55 in 2024, but the company will discontinue the Galaxy A2x series. (via The Elec)

    Fewer but better mid-range phones? Or simply cost-cutting?

    By reducing the number of Galaxy A devices developed in a single year, Samsung reportedly wants to reduce development costs while improving profitability. In other words, if prospective Galaxy A2x buyers won't have a sequel to buy next year, Samsung hopes that they'll choose the Galaxy A15 or the Galaxy A35 instead. And maybe even the Galaxy A55.

    Whether or not this strategy of shrinking the lineup would lead to better mid-range phones in the Galaxy A series is up for debate. In theory, focusing on fewer models could allow Samsung to develop better phones and offer better support and (even) faster firmware updates.

    Then again, leaning too much towards improving the remaining Galaxy A models would cut into profitability, so Samsung may want to strike a balance between fewer Galaxy A phones, lower development costs, more profitability, and hopefully better mid-range phones.

    At the end of the day, we can't be too certain that the Galaxy A series will be trimmed down next year. After all, we've just entered 2023, and most of this year's Galaxy A models haven't even been released yet. Furthermore, the rumors about the Galaxy S lineup losing one-third of itself next year have already been greatly exaggerated. With that in mind, you should probably take these other Galaxy A-related rumors for 2024 with a pinch of salt. We'll update you on the matter if more details emerge.
