Not too long ago it was reported that Samsung is going to introduce a new lineup of smartphones that will retain the single alphabet naming convention that Samsung has set in with the Galaxy A series. The company didn’t confirm anything but rumors came online revealing that the Korean giant was working on a new lineup that would have been called the U series. Word on the street is that Samsung has stopped development of U series smartphones.

The report from Sammobile doesn’t mention why Samsung has decided to stop the development of the U series, presumably this step has been taken to ensure that the Galaxy S6 gets every possible inch of the limelight when it comes out next year.

The possibility exists that this series might be resurrected once Galaxy S6 has been launched, this is expected to happen after the Mobile World Congress 2015 takes place in March.

SM-U500F was one of the devices that Samsung was reportedly working on. It is said to have an octacore Exynos 5433 processor with 2GB RAM, 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, 8 megapixel front and 16 megapixel rear camera, 16GB onboard storage, LTE, 2,360mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop. The device is supposedly just 6.15mm thin.

Samsung hasn’t commented on this report so there’s no official response from the company regarding development of a new series of smartphone behind halted, and now it seems unlikely that Samsung will publicly address this.
