A slew of leaks and rumors have purported to pronounce the Galaxy Note 21 series dead as of 2021. However, photos of what is claimed to be a piece of corporate art at a new physical Samsung store now dispute those claims. It incorporates the phablets' names alongside many of the OEM's pre-existing Android devices, suggesting they might be on the way after all

Update: @TEQHNIKACROSS has subsequently posted a "new" image of what appears to be the same installation, but without the Note21 product name, thereby effectively repudiating this new alleged leak. All in all, it still seems there will be no successors to the Galaxy Note 20 series in 2021 after all.

According to the latest leaks, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra are the last of their line. However, @TEQHNIKACROSS on Twitter now claims to be able to dispel this rumor. This leaker has posted photos allegedly sent from the opening of a new brick-and-mortar store.

The images reportedly show the product names Galaxy Note21 5G and Galaxy Note21 Ultra 5G - thus in the spacebar-saving nomenclature from their apparent predecessors, no less - alongside numerous others, all carved into "a sculpture of a large Samsung offline store".

The artwork ostensibly has the theme of "Powered by Android", underpinned by the fact it takes the form of a giant 3D Google logo on a white background, both of which are inscribed with a word-cloud-like collection of names for various, mostly newer, Samsung devices that run or sync with the OS in question.

Therefore, the Note 21 and its Ultra sibling might be back on after all. On the other hand, the installation as shown contains some slight detractors from this theory. While most of the names it sports do exist (ranging from the Galaxy S21 to the Galaxy Books Flex and Ion), some others are suspiciously absent. For example, the Z Fold2's full name is quite prominent, central and populous within the sculpture, yet its almost inevitable successor is nowhere to be seen.

In addition, the Galaxy Fit is in evidence, whereas its second generation is not. Therefore, it is possible that someone at this store has made a mistake in setting this perhaps obsolete piece, commissioned prior to a certain monumental decision, out during the opening. All in all, it is still too soon to say whether the Galaxy Note line is truly gone in 2021 or not.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
