Samsung’s Smartphone brandings
Samsung loves to make different brandings for different categories. Samsung made different categories for different types of users. The most famous and top-end Flagship series of Samsung is the S series, which provides the best possible specs. Similarly, Galaxy A is the budget series by Samsung. Samsung also suddenly ended the legendary Note series for productivity purposes. Samsung has now combined the Note and the S series in the all-new Samsung S22 Ultra.
But now Samsung is doing something that is not understandable. According to XDA (Ishan Agrawal), Samsung has removed ‘Z.’ from their currently selling foldable devices, Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip 3. Here is a tweet by Ishan Agrawal:
Ishan also said in his tweet that the removal of the ‘Z’ letter might be because the Z symbolized the Russian Army during the ongoing invasion. Samsung has also stopped its business in Russia because of the charge. The Removal of the Z is currently only in some countries of Europe. So it’s not a global change for now. Samsung is still selling these devices as Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 in western countries, including the USA. But it is not a big deal to change the branding of a smartphone. It can be curious for some people how silently Samsung has changed the branding of their foldable devices. There is no official statement by Samsung about this sudden change in the Galaxy Fold and Flip series branding. Let’s wait for the official announcement by Samsung.
