Samsung seemingly confirms that its Note series is dead


Yesterday, Samsung officially announced its brand new series of Galaxy S22 smartphones. One of the models in the lineup is the Galaxy S22 Ultra. This is the top of the line model and comes with a dedicated slot for the S Pen, which many have taken to mean that Samsung has effectively replaced its Note series.

Now according to several statements by some Samsung executives, it appears that the Note series is essentially done. One of the statements was made by TM Roh, Samsung mobile’s new chief who took the position about two years ago. According to Roh:

“In the near term, our operation will focus on a two-track strategy: flagship S series in the first half of the year and innovative foldable lineup in the second half. We will keep this strategy until there’s another major breakthrough and we are working hard to make it happen.”

Then there was another statement made by Drew Blackard, Vice President of Mobile Product Management for Samsung America where he essentially said that the company already built the Note experience into various other devices.

“We see the Note as an experience these days. We’ve put the Note experience in our PCs, our tablets, our foldables … From a device perspective, we see the S22 Ultra as the natural next step for a Note owner.”

Keep in mind that none of these statements actually explicitly say that the Note series is done for, but it doesn’t seem particularly hopeful either. That being said, for those who are fans of the series, the Galaxy Note 20 is still being sold online so it’s still available if you want to get your hands on it.
