Death to the flagships! Samsung has promised to release a budget smartphone with a camera from the Galaxy Note 20

Despite the fact that it is rather difficult to imagine a smartphone market, where each device would have equal opportunities, and there would be no flagship models, apparently, everything goes to this. Well, see for yourself. Now there is not a single manufacturer that would equip their smartphones with some kind of special processor – vendors are richer than top-end Snapdragons, vendors are more principled – Kirin and Exynos, and those who do not care about everything – MediaTek. Of course, with the reorientation of the flagships on the photo-capability, the situation has changed a bit, but probably not for long.

Samsung believes there may be no difference between flagships and low-cost smartphones at all

What annoys me the most about Samsung models

Samsung plans to start equipping Galaxy A line of smartphones with the Galaxy Note 20 camera. Despite the fact that it includes several rather expensive devices, most of them are either initially budget models, or those that are systematically cheaper, wandering from the middle price segment to the initial one, like e.g. Galaxy A51.

This is the Galaxy S20 Ultra camera. It will also receive the Galaxy Note 20 and some state employee from the Galaxy A line

The practice of introducing high-quality multi-camera modules for smartphones of the top price segment will also apply to mid-price devices. Right now, we are considering equipping one of the low-cost smartphones with the very first-class camera that the flagship has. We plan to expand our revenue by offering consumers advanced photography capabilities at a competitive price, ”said Bae Kwang-wook, head of Samsung Electro-Mechanics, which supplies camera modules for Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

The top manager did not say directly that the camera, which will be equipped with one of the inexpensive Samsung smartphones, belongs to the Galaxy Note 20. However, the journalists of The Elec, through their sources close to the company’s plans, found out that it would be it.

This is readily believed, given that the Galaxy A lineup already has the Galaxy A71 5G with a 64-megapixel camera. This means that the future smartphone will obviously not receive it, but something more abruptly, for example, the 108-megapixel sensor, which is equipped with the Galaxy S20 Ultra and will be equipped with the Galaxy Note 20.

The Galaxy Note 20’s camera features and capabilities are pretty close to the one that comes with the Galaxy S20 Ultra, but it has a few differences. For example, it will not support 100x digital zoom and a number of other features that Samsung wants to reserve for just one smartphone.

Inexpensive Samsung smartphone with the best camera

Samsung’s decision to install a flagship camera in a mid-range smartphone may seem strange, but from a business point of view, it is absolutely logical. The Koreans adopted it because of the high popularity of the Galaxy A line, because it is it, not the flagships, that brings them the most income. Therefore, it is logical that the company decided to start actively developing its “cash cow” in order to attract even more users who are somehow reluctant to take flagships.

Why exchange for flagships, if you can row money with a shovel on the sale of budget funds?

But which smartphone will receive a top-end camera is still a mystery. I think I won’t be mistaken if I assume that it will be equipped with one of the devices of the Galaxy A line of 2021. This is highly likely given that the entire 2020 Galaxy A lineup has already been unveiled. In principle, Samsung could dilute it with some kind of Galaxy A81 or release something in between, for example, Galaxy A71s, but it’s hard to believe in that. Firstly, the Koreans promise that the device will be inexpensive, and, secondly, such an upgrade clearly deserves a full-fledged novelty.

What does all this mean? And the fact that Samsung actually intends to gradually blur the line between flagship smartphones. After all, if she realized that top-end devices are not in proper demand, and inexpensive ones are, it is logical that it is more profitable for the company to support the latter. Yes, for this you will have to work on the cost price in order to reduce it to the maximum. But if it gives a good exhaust, then the flagships can be abandoned almost completely.
