One of the reasons Samsung canceled its Note line was that it wanted to focus more on its foldable devices. But currently, the company is focusing more on flagship-tier foldable phones, which only a few people can afford.

However, going forward, Samsung may emphasize truly democratizing the product category by releasing foldable phones that belong to the mid-range price segment.

According to leaker @chunvn8888 on Twitter, Samsung is planning a foldable phone that will be part of the Galaxy A series, which includes both mid-range and more affordable devices.

Samsung's plan to release a foldable phone that's part of the Galaxy A series seems to be in very early stages. @chunvn8888 has told Neowin that the chief of Samsung's mobile division, Roh Tae-moon, doesn't know when the company will start working on the project. That said, the expectation is that Samsung will release it either in 2024 or a year after that.

Another important aspect that's currently missing from is what kind of foldable phone it will be. Will it be a clamshell foldable phone or a Z Fold-styled one? There is no clarity on that, but given that clamshell foldable are a bit less expensive to make, the rumored Galaxy A series foldable phone could draw similarities from the Galaxy Z Flip lineup. Again, it's just speculation, and we're hoping to get more clarity on a lot of things, including the form factor, in the future.

If things go as planned, there will be a couple of exciting pieces of tech coming from Samsung in 2025. Apart from the potential release of the Galaxy A series foldable phone, the South Korean tech giant is expected to release a new chipset different than Exynos dedicated to power the future Galaxy S series phones. The first Galaxy S series handset to be powered by the chipset will likely be the "Galaxy S25".
