Samsung May Shift to a New Design for the S25 Series, Rumors Suggest

For years, one of the biggest downsides to Samsung devices was undoubtedly the lack of identity for their smartphones. This drastically changed with the launch of the S22 series, where the design philosophy bled into the mid-range and entry-level devices.

The S23 series, its successor, was initially almost indistinguishable from its predecessor and now, credible sources report that the S24 is expected to follow the same design language with only minor changes (flat screen, titanium side rails).

Samsung’s current smartphone lineup, spanning from the budget-friendly A series to the premium Flip and Fold devices, has established somewhat of a distinct design identity and while this approach does strengthen the overall brand recognition, it also blurs the lines between high-end and affordable models. For instance, the upcoming S24 and S24+ are rumored to closely resemble the A55 and A35, blurring the line of distinction between flagship and budget offerings.

However, this is expected to change since sticking to the same design does little in terms of innovation. Early rumors for the S25 series have pointed out that Samsung may be looking to switch things up a bit on the design end and opt for a completely different design language. To add to this, there is more to be intrigued by this unconfirmed flagship phone.

Apparently, Samsung is working on a new set of camera sensors, comprising a 50MP GN6, 200MP HP7, and a whopping 440MP HU1 camera sensor. However, as surprising as it may sound, Samsung may not opt for this setup. The HP7 was actually slated to go with the S25U but was canceled due to its excessively high cost.

Interestingly, there’s another 320MP sensor in the mix that may find its way to the S25U or the S26 series. Till then, this is all we know, but rest assured that we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
