Samsung Galaxy Note line's coffin receives another nail
It’s widely expected that the Samsung Galaxy Note line is nearing the end of its product life cycle, with the last SKU in the series, the Galaxy Note 20, launching in August 2020. There has been no Samsung Galaxy Note 21 range and there have been many reports stating that the Galaxy Note 22 series is also off the cards. Now a report from Korean media ETNews has claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Note has been “completely withdrawn”.
The report continues that Samsung has laid more focus on the Galaxy S line and its growing range of foldable and flippable smartphones. The recent leak of Note-shaped accessories heading for the Galaxy S22 Ultra basically confirms that Samsung has integrated the best parts of the Galaxy Note series into the upcoming S22 series and likely into future foldable devices too. Hence the presence of S Pen support in products such as the S21 Ultra and the Z Fold 3.
ETNews reckons the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be the device to capture the hearts of Note fans by delivering the same sort of productivity and functionality as a Note phablet. In addition, the growing foldable market has pushed the requirement for Note production to the side, as the publication details how shipments of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold devices next year should exceed those of the Note at its 2019 height (12.7 million units). It seems that all that is left now is an official unambiguous statement from Samsung to say that the Galaxy Note is no more.
