Aiming to disrupt India’s mid-segment smartphone market, Samsung is set to launch four new smartphones — two each in Galaxy “A” and Galaxy “J” series — this month.
The upcoming Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ smartphones could be priced between Rs 20,000 and Rs 25,000 while the devices in Galaxy “J” series could cost customers Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000, industry sources told IANS on Friday.
Two of the four smartphones in the upcoming line-up would come with dual camera set-up, the sources added.
All of them will be made at the company’s Noida facility. The smartphones will feature Samsung’s super AMOLED “Infinity Display” — bezel-less screen that creates an immersive viewing experience.
Notably, Samsung’s flagship smartphones such as Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S9 series feature the “Infinity Display”. Now, with the upcoming devices, the display feature would be introduced at lower price points in the Indian market.

With Artificial Intelligence (AI) pushing the frontiers of communication technology, Samsung Electronics is planning to develop a multi-device platform — a variety of AI-enabled devices that communicate seamlessly with each other — to make experiences more personal and relevant.
The South Korean tech giant presented its future vision for AI while announcing this week a new AI centre in Montreal, Canada.
“By leveraging the power of AI in Samsung’s products and services, we must focus on creating new values, never seen nor experienced before,” said Seunghwan Cho, Executive Vice President of Samsung Research.
By providing multiple touchpoints where a user can interact with AI, Samsung said its multi-modal interaction platform (voice, vision, screen, touch) will make experiences more relevant and personal in the future.
“One key element that will move AI to being more widely adopted is multi-device systems — i.e., a variety of AI-enabled devices that communicate seamlessly with each other,” said Larry Heck, Head of AI Centres for Samsung Research America.
“Samsung is uniquely positioned to be a leader in this regard. It’s not just how each device uses AI, it’s how they use it together,” Heck said.
The newly opened AI centre in Montreal is Samsung’s seventh AI research facility to open this year making it the fourth in North America alone.
The global AI centres, which are also located in South Korea, Russia and Britain, support the company’s efforts in AI that include the development of Samsung’s virtual assistant, Bixby.
Gregory Dudek of the McGill University School of Computer Science and an expert in a wide range of AI technologies — from Machine Learning to human-robot interactions — will lead the Montreal AI Centre.
