Samsung Galaxy Note 21 release not in doubt, tipster claims
A few days ago, word on the grapevine claimed that the Galaxy Note 20 could be the final Samsung Galaxy Note device, with the Galaxy S21 touted to feature an S-pen. Apparently, that isn't the case.
According to tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy Note 20 will not be the last Galaxy Note phone. Ergo, the Galaxy Note 21 will be released when its due next year. It's important to note that the tweet does imply the possibility of the Galaxy S21 Ultra getting an S-pen, but without spelling doom for the Galaxy Note 21.
Samsung killing off the Galaxy Note series was always improbable in any case. While the Galaxy S20 Ultra bridged the gap between the S and Note series more than ever before, the Galaxy Note line allows Samsung to refine new hardware and features from the Galaxy S series. That aside, Samsung sells millions of Galaxy Note series phones every year, and killing off the line in favor of a significantly more expensive Galaxy Fold offering as touted, would be too risky a move.
The output and price of Z Fold 3 are not enough to replace the Note as Samsung's main flagship in the second half of the year, and Note is still a guarantee of shipment.— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) August 24, 2020
