Earlier this week, Korean publication The Elec published a report suggesting that Samsung, the world’s largest Android phone manufacturer, might have a rather monumental shift in strategy in place for its 2024 lineup. Shortly after incorporating the Note series into the primary Galaxy S lineup, the company is now ready to drop its long-standing three-device strategy in the series.

While the upcoming Galaxy S23 lineup is expected to include three devices, just like last year, the 2024 flagship portfolio could get a significant shake-up. If rumors are to be believed, the series will ship with just the budget flagship Samsung Galaxy S24, and a top-end Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra marking the upper end of Samsung’s non-foldable offerings.
