A Samsung Galaxy Note 5 smartphone is a step closer to reality.

Samsung Electronics Co. on Monday said its latest Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy S6, will be sold as an Android phone rather than a Samsung smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy smartphones, the S5, S6 and S6 edge, were announced in October.

They have all received positive reviews, including a thumbs up from Consumer Reports.

The Galaxy S7 is expected to be released in November.
