This year we saw Samsung revolution over its midrange series. The company completely revamped its lineup in terms of specs and naming. Gone are the A + one number designations, now we have A10, A20, A30, A40, A50, A60, A70, A80. There are some derivatives as well, such as Galaxy A10e or the upcoming S-upgrades.
We already started the second half of 2019 and makes sense to start wondering how the Korean firm will call their smartphones next year. Thankfully we already know what to expect in 2020. Samsung has recently trademarked 9 specific names for upcoming smartphones in the A-series. The document was filed at the European Union Intellectual Property Office.
The upcoming devices will be named Galaxy A11, A21, A31, A41, A51, A61, A71, A81 and A91. Apparently, Samsung will adopt the same path of HMD Global. Although the later seems to be rather geeky-inspired with dots and naming that resembles software versioning. Interesting enough, some users were waiting for Galaxy A100, A200 in the next year, but that won’t be the case after all.
We assume that the same treatment will be given to the Galaxy M-series. This way, in the next year we will also know the Galaxy M11, M12 and M31 and M41 smartphones. Both the M-series and the A-series definitively delivered refreshment to Samsung’s midrange portfolio. That category was plagued a few years ago with less capable and non-appealing smartphones.
