Samsung may soon launch three new Android devices (maybe be part of a single series) whose model no. is SM-G400, SM-G403 and SM-G405. Well, their more variants part of the whole program, as we also spotted a model dubbed G406, etc., but that doesn’t matter much.
Today, various models of the SM-G40 series for certified at Bluetooth SIG. Naturally, we looked up these models on the web and found that these models, as well as more variants of the lineup, were certified by Wi-Fi Alliance too, wait for it, back in November 2018.
The exact models that cleared Bluetooth SIG today are:
While at Wi-Fi Alliance, numerous other variants have already passed through. These are:
Which devices are they
Well, it’s hard to say. There have few SM-G models from Samsung thus far. Here is a gist of them all:
|SM-G3||Galaxy core phones|
|SM-G5||Galaxy Grand phones|
|SM-G6||Galaxy On phones|
|SM-G7||Galaxy Grand 2 phones|
|SM-G8||Galaxy S5 Mini and Galaxy Alpha phones|
|SM-G9||Galaxy S series|
Given the above, we think the SM-G4 models will be budget handsets. It could be similar to what the Galaxy M series is, but we have to have some patience right now and see what Samsung throws at us.
Well, certification of these models at both Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG leads us to believe us these models are close to the release. We could be looking at March-April 2019 release.
The devices should be released both in the U.S. and globally because we are seeing both the U model we well as F model get certified.
What are your thoughts on these models?
