Samsung is just a few weeks away from unleashing the new Galaxy S23 series to the world. Still, a new report suggests that the company has already started making plans for next year’s Galaxy S24 lineup, which is likely to see some changes.
The report of The Electric says Samsung could drop one model from the 2024 series, and we’re talking specifically about the Galaxy S24 Plus, meaning Samsung could launch the vanilla Galaxy S24 and the S24 Ultra.
While the report doesn’t mention the reason for this supposed change, it’s possible that the Plus variant appears to eat up Samsung’s overcrowded production line and also increase the production cost of an additional model.
The report does mention that Samsung could decide to replace the Plus variant with some Galaxy A-series models, and in some ways the decision could make sense. With three models, the company can have products in different price ranges, but it stands to reason that Samsung would study the demand for products and deem them vital to bring upgrades to market.
And it’s not just Samsung that could doubt its Plus variant for years to come.
Apple has also witnessed low demand for the iPhone 14 Plus model launched with the other three models. Both companies have not spoken publicly about the performance of these models, but multiple reports suggest that buyers may soon consider two models from these brands.
That said, we expect business to continue as usual this year, with three models from Samsung and four from Apple coming later this year, which will likely also be the first set of iPhones to come with USB-C charging as standard.
