Last year the Samsung Note 20 got more attention than the S20 variants which was not the intentions of the Seoul based tech giants. According to Ice Universe, Samsung might be discontinuing its legendary not series.
The company has planned to focus on the Galaxy S series and their foldable phone range. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are expected to launch with a price tag less than $1000. The Galaxy S series is now compatible with S stylus pen so there isn’t really a reason Samsung would be launching three flagships (Note, Fold and S series).
On Twitter Ice Universe posted an image of a The End card that you’d typically see in a very early black and white movie alongside the simple message: “Galaxy Note”. And Ice Universe isn’t the only one predicting the demise of the Galaxy Note range. Another leakster MauriQHD also tweeted: “Note 21 series is not happening”
In November 2020, Ice Universe tweeted that there has been no news on the Note 21 which is quite unusual as the news about such flagship products are already surfacing on the internet six to eight months prior to its official announcement. But there was no news about the Note 21 after the release of Note 20. Moreover, a high profile and reliable leaker, Max Weinbach, listed the Samsung top end phones that will be releasing in the year 2021 and Note 21 wasn’t a part of it. The list included S21 FE, S21, S21+, S21 Ultra, Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3 and Z Fold FE. He also rumored that Samsung has planned to introduce cheaper foldable phones.
Samsung first launched its Galaxy Note range back in October 2011, one year after the Galaxy S line debuted. Speaking recently about what the future holds for Samsung’s smartphone range, one Samsung bigwig said the S Pen would be coming to other devices following its recent S21 Ultra debut which would be eliminating the reason of continuing Note series.
But Samsung won’t be planning to axe its iconic Note line in a lowkey. There is much to expect from Samsung about the discontinuation of Note series.
