For the longest time ever, Samsung has released two flagship phones a year – the Galaxy S series and the Galaxy Note series, with the latter typically separating itself from the former with a larger screen and the inclusion of a built-in stylus.
These days, our phones are getting larger to the point where the distinction between the two is becoming smaller, so much so that a report out of Korea is claiming that Samsung is already taking steps to slowly phase out its Note series by introducing digitizers for the highest-end model of the Galaxy S21 which will come with support for the S Pen.
This is actually not the first time we’re hearing that Samsung could kill off the Galaxy Note series, but more recently we had heard that the Note series won’t actually be discontinued next year and that it will most likely be in 2022. If that is the case, then this report makes sense as Samsung will probably want to start getting customers used to the idea of using the S Pen with its Galaxy S series.
Of course, none of this can be confirmed right now so take it with a grain of salt, but Samsung is rumored to launch the Galaxy S21 at an event held in January next year, so we won’t have to wait too long to find out if these rumors are the real deal.
