Samsung Galaxy Note trademark dropped, killing off hopes of a Galaxy Note 22 series
Samsung has updated its trademarks for numerous product names, including the Galaxy S and Galaxy Z series. The trademarks were renewed in August, presumably for next year's set of Galaxy smartphones. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S series will return next year, with the S22 series tipped to debut RDNA 2 GPUs in a smartphone form factor.
Samsung continues to push the Galaxy Z series hard too. For example, the company received over 900,000 Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 pre-orders in South Korea during the device's first week alone. In short, it appears that the Galaxy Z series has replaced the Galaxy Note series, at least from Samsung's point of view.
The omission of the Galaxy Note series from these new trademarks underlines this, in our opinion. Arguably, Samsung has not managed to replace the Galaxy Note series entirely yet though, even after bringing S Pen support to the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the Galaxy Z Fold3.
Neither are able to carry an S Pen in their chassis though, unlike the Galaxy Note series. Evidently, the Galaxy Note series is not currently in Samsung's plans for 2022. Hence, we doubt that there will be any replacement for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra any time soon.
