Is Samsung Galaxy S25+ dead? Maybe not.


With Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event around the corner (on July 10, to be exact), we’re expecting to see a bunch of phones unveiled, including the new Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6.

Samsung is also expected to launch the Samsung Galaxy S25, Galaxy S25+, and Galaxy S25 Ultra early next year, but a recent rumor from Android Headlines said there would be no “plus” model this time. The report cited filings in an IMEI database that don’t mention the S25+ variant, only the S25 and S25 Ultra.

That would be a pretty big departure from the norm, given that it’s been Samsung’s practice to launch three variants of its Galaxy S flagship device for years (the division between the “regular” S, the S Plus, and the S Ultra started in 2020, with the launch of Samsung Galaxy S20).

The report may have been premature, though. According to SamMobile, which cites “multiple sources,” the Galaxy S25+ is still very much in development.

With no other details in either report, it’s tough to figure out who to trust, though we’re leaning towards Samsung staying the course it set years ago; in any case, we’ll know for sure when Samsung makes it official.

Notably, little has leaked about the Galaxy S25 series of devices so far, though we did hear they’re getting pricier compared to the last generation, due to the addition of the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip. On the other side, leaker Evan Blass recently shared images of both the upcoming Z Fold 6 and the Z Flip 6, so we can be fairly certain that those phones are, indeed, coming.

UPDATE: Jul. 3, 2024, 4:16 p.m. CEST The article has been updated to clarify that Samsung’s Galaxy S devices are likely coming early next year instead of this year.
