A company insider has told a South Korean news outlet that Samsung plans on releasing one last Galaxy Note smartphone before retiring the series entirely in 2022. The Galaxy Note 21 will come in only one variant, presumably top-of-the-line hardware like the Exynos 2100/Snapdragon 875, an AMOLED panel that can push 120Hz at 1440p, and more.

The overwhelming sentiment among industry leakers and insiders has been that the Galaxy Note series ends with the Galaxy Note 20. We reported earlier that Samsung was planning on releasing the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in place of the Galaxy Note 21. A new report from a South Korean news outlet suggests that there may still be hope for the Galaxy Note 21.

ETNews reconfirms rumours from earlier which stated that Samsung would merge the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series of smartphones. However, there will be one last Samsung Galaxy Note 21 variant released later this year before the series is scrapped entirely in 2022.

A dedicated Galaxy Note 21 smartphone will give Galaxy Note aficionados one last chance to cherish the beloved phablet before its unconfirmed, yet eventual demise. It will also save Samsung the embarrassment of releasing a poorly-specced Galaxy Note 20 successor whose sole purpose is to make the 'Ultra' variant look like a better deal.

The move also takes the Galaxy Note series back to its roots, when Samsung released one top-of-the-line smartphone in H2 of every year. Die-hard fans and enthusiasts can rest easy knowing that the Galaxy Note 21 will get the best hardware Samsung has to offer in 2021. We can expect its specifications to be similar to that of the Galaxy S21 Ultra with an Exynos 2100/Snapdragon 875, five rear cameras, a 5,000mAh battery, a 1440p panel that can run at 120Hz, a high-capacity battery that supports fast charging at over 60W, and more.
