While the Galaxy S24+ (review) has not been the best-selling model from Samsung's flagship smartphone lineup, it continues to be a solid option for those looking for a balance between the standard and Ultra models. Now, new findings claim the Galaxy S25+ won't be launching next year, although this was refuted by another source.

Missing Galaxy S25+ in Samsung's listing

Each July, Samsung will add devices slated to launch the following year to its IMEI database. This has been mostly the case for the Galaxy S lineup over the past years, with the trio Galaxy S24 models appearing in the repository in the middle of 2023.

However, the latest findings of Android Headlines, having access to the database, indicated that only two 2025 models of the Galaxy S25 have been listed. Namely, they are the SM-S931 and SM-S938, which are believed to be the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25 Ultra based on the models' naming convention.

That being said, speculation is rife that the Galaxy S25+ could be ditched from the lineup based on the database.

Why Samsung may not release the Galaxy S25+

While there are no other existing reports to support this claim, there might be a possibility for this to materialize. One of those is the Galaxy S25 was rumored earlier this year to feature a larger 6.4-inch display.

If this is an indication the Galaxy S25+ will not be released, a wider real screen estate could fill both the size of the standard and larger Galaxy S24 (review) models, which feature 6.2-inch and 6.7-inch displays, respectively.

Interestingly, the claim was quickly refuted by Galaxy Club. According to the Dutch publication, the Galaxy S25+ will make its way next year alongside the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25 Ultra. In fact, it will carry the SM-S936 model number.

What's left unanswered here, however, is how the Galaxy S25+ went missing in the database. Perhaps it could be due to an unspecific reason we have yet to learn of. Nonetheless, the Galaxy S25 won't be ready until January 2025, so there are plenty a lot of things that could happen along the way.

Do you think it makes sense if Samsung releases only the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25 Ultra next year? We want to hear your answers.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
