The lifespan of a smartphone is getting increasingly shorter.
According to an internal document we received, in an effort to make room for new flagships, Bell is giving a number of popular devices the “End of Life” status.
The most notable is the Samsung Galaxy S6, both the 64GB and 128GB black models, and also the Galaxy S4 from 2013. Also making the list is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Strangely, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge isn’t included in this list. Furthermore, it looks like Bell still intends to sell the Galaxy S6 32GB.
In addition, it seems Bell is removing the 128GB iPad Air 2 from its lineup.
This adds to speculation Apple plans to launch the iPad Air 3, which has also been rumoured to be called the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
