Earlier this year, there were reports that Samsung would be killing off its Galaxy Note series. There was a bit of back and forth about whether it was truly killed off, but then it was later revealed that Samsung would be skipping the Note series for 2021 and that they were looking to launch a new model in 2022.
It turns out that may no longer be the case. According to the latest report out of South Korea from ET News, they claim that Samsung has reportedly no plans to launch a new Note model in 2022. The report also claims that Samsung is winding down production of the Galaxy Note 20, which means that soon users won’t be able to get their hands on the device once retailers run out of inventory.
Now, is this really that surprising? Not really. This is because according to the rumors and leaked renders, Samsung could actually integrate some of the Note’s features and designs into its Galaxy S22 series, or specifically, the Galaxy S22 Ultra where based on the renders, it could feature a dedicated S Pen slot like the Note series.
Not to mention, it was discovered a few months ago that Samsung had actually not renewed the trademarks for the Galaxy Note, suggesting that they could be done with the lineup for good. Plus, Samsung’s foldables like the Galaxy Z Flip have been selling like hotcakes, so it would make sense that they would want to focus on that instead.
Either way, we won’t know until 2022 but until then, maybe temper your expectations at seeing a new Note phone next year.
