While Samsung’s mobile boss TM Roh has broadcast intends to bring stylus support to more phones across its lineup, there may still be a new Galaxy Note in 2021. An anonymous Samsung official discloses to Yonhap that the organization is “preparing to release the Galaxy Note series next year” and that “Roh’s message does not mean that the Galaxy Note series will be discontinued.”
Samsung declined to comment on the particulars of Yonhap’s report when reached by The Verge, however gave the following statement:
Samsung confirms plans to bring some of the most beloved features of the Galaxy Note to more device categories in 2021. We remain committed to providing the best mobile experience to our consumers and will continue to actively listen and consider consumer feedback in all our product innovations. We cannot share any further details at this time.
The obvious question, if Yonhap’s report is exact, is the manner by which Samsung will separate the Note series. The current year’s model previously felt like you were paying for the S Pen support alone, taking into account how the Galaxy S20 FE dominated it on specs and undercut it on cost.
The Note 20 Ultra was an all the more compelling — yet costly – recommendation, however it’s difficult to perceive how it’d fit close by a likely full complement of stylus-compatible Galaxy S21 gadgets with practically identical screen sizes. What’s more, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 shows that foldable phones may before long be an all the more comprehensively reasonable alternative at the top finish of Samsung’s reach.
Samsung is required to uncover its widely-leaked next lead Galaxy S phones in January, somewhat sooner than expected. We’ll need to keep a watch out if that series leaves any holes for a potential Note 21 to fill.
