Samsung's A-series are possibly going double-digits

Georgi Vasilev, 21 July 2018

Samsung's smartphone lineup is an ever-growing mess of alphanumeric strings of model names. With some J-series hardware now passing as the Galaxy A6 (2018) and A6+ (2018), a reimagining of the A-series was in order, and it appears that could be happening.

Samsung's filed for trademarks in Europe for devices named A10, A30, A50, A70, and A90 - doesn't the double-digit designation really open up possibilities for further growth?

What's a bit disconcerting, however, is that the Galaxy moniker is missing in the EU filings - only the Tizen-powered Z-series Samsung phones have been released without the Galaxy branding. All is well in the Korean trademark regulatory authority, however - Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 trademark applications have been filed there.

We can go ahead and speculate that the naming change could spread to other model lineups, though somehow a Galaxy S20 a year and a half from now doesn't really seem right.

For some reason, the Galaxy A8 series are popular on teenagers here in my province.

How do you know? Google is much better as an ecosystem. It has millions of apps in the store, Smartwatch OS, Android TV, Android Auto, Home integration... And what Samsung has? limping not developed OS with a limited TV and Watches integration...

No need to. Google will suffer the same fate Microsoft went thru with Windows. Samsung already has redundant apps err I mean they have their own Galaxy App store and built in applications that sometimes are even better than Googles.
