The Samsung Galaxy S25 sequence remains to be at the very least half a yr away, with the telephones anticipated to launch someday early subsequent yr, possible someday between January and February primarily based on precedent. However, a latest exclusive from Android Headlines suggests there could also be a radical change within the pipeline for the S25 sequence — it might not include a Galaxy S25 Plus mannequin, leaving only a common S25 and S25 Ultra as a part of the lineup.

The rumor relies on Android Headline’s examinations of the IMEI database. The Galaxy S25 is out there with mannequin quantity SMS931B/DS, the S25 Ultra seems as SM-S938B, SM-S938U, SM-S938N, and SM-S9380. For reference, the B within the IMEI quantity stands for the Global mannequin, the U for the USA, and the N for South Korea.

Android Headline believes that the omission of the S25 Plus from the database means that Samsung is making a serious change to the lineup and launching solely two units within the S25 sequence. It additionally factors out that the Plus variant hasn’t at all times met gross sales expectations.

In 2020, Samsung truly had 4 variants: the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, Note 20, and Note 20 Ultra. This was streamlined in 2021 to simply the S21, S21 Plus, and S21 Ultra, and Samsung has stored this launch schedule ever since.

The reasoning right here strikes us as somewhat skinny. There are many explanation why a telephone mannequin could not have been entered into the IMEI database but. As SamMobile points out, simply because there isn’t an early signal of an S25 Plus mannequin doesn’t imply that it doesn’t exist or isn’t in improvement. According to a number of sources, together with Galaxy Club, the Galaxy S25 Plus remains to be in improvement. Samsung refers back to the base, Plus, and Ultra fashions utilizing code names F1, F2, and F3 with accompanying mannequin numbers SM-S931, SM-S936, and SM-S938. As far as we all know up to now, all three fashions are nonetheless on the desk.

In different rumors, we’ve gotten some doable perception into the prospective camera sensors of the S25, plus some discuss that Samsung could move away from Qualcomm to a MediaTek chip or some mixture of MediaTek, Exynos, and Qualcomm chips. The latter rumor was lately contradicted by reliable tipster Ming-Chi Kuo, who stated Samsung shall be sticking with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 for the S25 and that Qualcomm will truly be the only provider.

At this level, we’re nonetheless very early within the rumor cycle for the Galaxy S25. Things often don’t agency up till later within the yr, so count on to get extra dependable and fewer contradictory info within the coming months.
