Samsung is the leading smartphone vendor in the world partly because of the sheer number of devices the company pumps into the mobile phone industry every year. The Korean company has representation in every category, including the entry-level Android Go, something that often leaves many confused about which model to pick.
Well, if the latest reports are to be believed, the year 2019 might bid goodbye to Samsung Galaxy J, Galaxy C and Galaxy On phones. It’s surprising to see such a development pop up at a time when the company is pushing even more devices into the market. It’s only a few weeks ago that the Galaxy J series got new members in the shape of Galaxy J4, Galaxy J6, and Galaxy J8. So, for such reports to show up with claims of plans to do away with what has been the best performing family of phones for Samsung sounds like, well, a big rumor.
And yes it is because it comes from a Chinese tipster who doesn’t have a solid track record in this business, but often gets some things right. Apparently, Samsung has new plans for the budget segment that’s largely dominated by Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, and most recently Nokia, but this plan is still unknown to us.
Samsung will cancel GALAXY J On C Series.

While it’s true Samsung is no longer reaping huge profits from selling budget phones due to stiffer competition in markets that the Galaxy J and On series used to excel, you might want to take this rumor with a big pinch of salt. As for the Galaxy C series, the market might never feel the difference of doing away with it because it’s like the devices never even existed for the most of us.
