If the (usually overpriced) Galaxy J series had any fans, they will definitely love the Galaxy A lineup because Samsung has just confirmed that "Galaxy J is now Galaxy A" in a YouTube video. The existing Samsung Galaxy A10, A20, A30, A50 and A70 will be joined by a few new models on April 10.
Codrut Nistor,

The Galaxy J lineup is dead, long live the Galaxy A series! Samsung seems to be on the right path with the latest Galaxy A handsets, which come with attractive features for a good price. A promotional video that was recently published on YouTube by Samsung Malaysia confirms that the Galaxy J has been replaced/integrated by the Galaxy A family.

The description of the aforementioned video reads the following: "Galaxy J that you loved is now the new Galaxy A. See the change and experience it with the new Galaxy A30 & Galaxy A50." Obviously, the title — "Galaxy J is now Galaxy A" — leaves no room for misunderstandings.

For now, the Galaxy A family consists of the following models: Galaxy A10, A20, A30, A50 and A70. The April 10 launch event is expected to bring some more, the most important being the Galaxy A90, which is rumored to introduce a whole new form factor with a pop-up rotating camera. Next to it, we should also see the Galaxy A20e that surfaced a few times online so far. 

Can Samsung finally delivery worthy competitors to the mid-range and low-end handsets from the likes of Xiaomi that have been cannibalizing its market share in India and other emerging markets? Feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments section.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
