Samsung has announced that their Galaxy J series of smartphones is being replaced by the Galaxy A series.
This change effectively makes the Galaxy A series Samsung's main line of mid-range smartphones.
In the video, Samsung emphasised on the features being offered by the Galaxy A series, saying that the "Galaxy A puts cutting edge mobile technology within reach".
Comparing the highest end models of the A series and J series, the A50 and the J8, it can be said that while both of the devices occupy the same price range, the A50 does in fact come with a more attractive feature set.
Some of the features that the A50 is equipped with that the J8 lacks includes fast charging, a triple main camera setup with an ultrawide lens, and USB type-C.
The A50 is also the only Samsung smartphone besides the flagship S10 and S10+ that has an on-screen fingerprint sensor.
As of right now, all models from the Galaxy J series are no longer available through official Samsung channels, while the Galaxy A10, A20, A30, and A50 are available from the Samsung online store, Lazada, 11street, and Samsung Experience stores.Samsung will also be officially unveiling the Galaxy A80 at a Galaxy A Unpacked Event in Bangkok at 8pm today.
