With the differences between the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy S lines diminishing, Samsung might be doing more harm to its flagship smartphone segment. A new rumour from tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) suggests that Samsung might be thinking about this problem and the company might unite the two under the Galaxy One brand. And the one reportedly getting axed is the more innovative Note brand. Instead of releasing two flagships at the start and latter part of the year, the company might focus on the S series. This flagship will launch at the beginning of the year with phones that also carry the S Pen.

As for the gap in the fall, Samsung is said to be considering filling this in with the Galaxy Fold. As MSPowerUser points out, the Note line did start as Samsung's more experimental line. It makes sense that Samsung's most out-there product right now takes its place. But according to this is still reliant on a few factors. He tweets, "Assuming that Fold performs according to expectations—both functionally and in the market—the hope is to deploy its successors as a second-half flagship, in the spot that would be vacated by Note. This was described as still being very fluid and tentative at this stage." For now, these are all rumours, and we still have the Note line. But we're keeping our eyes out for any changes to suggest otherwise.
