The primary selling point of the lineup is the high-capacity battery and multi-lens camera setup, following the common trend within budget smartphones in 2019. It is positioned below the more streamlined, mid-range Galaxy A series, although the newer, higher-end models were derived from the A series with several alterations.

DescriptionEdit

Being positioned at the mid-range and low-end segments, all models in the series have the all essential features of an entry-level smartphone, besides some other advanced features, thus differentiating them from other series and also differ in size and design. Samsung targets Asian developing markets or the European entry-level market with the lineup as a response to the growing popularity of budget smartphones offered by Chinese manufacturers such as Xiaomi, Huawei and BBK Electronics.
