Samsung confirms the end of the Galaxy Note series at MWC 2022
Samsung had a busy start to MWC 2022, but not with smartphone releases. Instead, the company revealed the Galaxy Book2 Pro and Galaxy Book2 Pro 360, two laptops that will be available in 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch screen sizes. However, Roh Tae-moon, head of Samsung Electronics Mobile Experience, has commented on the future of the Galaxy Note series.
According to Dailian, Tae-moon, confirmed to reporters at MWC 2022 that:
[the] Galaxy Note will come out as an 'ultra' every year in the future
Unequivocally, Samsung has chosen to end the Galaxy Note series as we knew it. Still, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra successor in all but name, considering its design and S Pen. Regardless, both smartphones lack a 3.5 mm headphone jack and microSD card expansion like past Galaxy Note smartphones, unlike the ageing LG V60 ThinQ.
Rumour has it that the Galaxy Z Fold could gain a built-in S Pen this year, too. Ultimately, Samsung's broader Galaxy Z series has also replaced the Galaxy Note, which Samsung tended to refresh every autumn. The Galaxy Z Flip4 should join the Galaxy Z Fold4 later this year as well, albeit without S Pen support.
