When it comes to Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy Note series has been one of the most popular series among them. Apart from the large screen size, the most unique feature for the smartphone was the stylus that provided a lot of functionality as well. Although the stylus has now also been offered in the Samsung Galaxy S21 series, it still remains the identity of the Note series. If you have been using the Galaxy Note series or have been waiting for a new offering from Samsung, then this might hit you as bad news. The tech giant has confirmed that they will not be making any new launches for the Note series this year.
In Samsung’s 52nd annual shareholder’s meeting, DJ Koh, co-CEO of Samsung’s IT and Mobile Communications division has confirmed that it will not be possible for the company to release the Note series this year under the Galaxy S21 series. The major reason behind this has been stated as the shortage of chips and clash with the existing product. Although, he also confirmed that this should not be taken as the discontinuation of the series as the company will be offering more products under it next year.
As per their official statement, “Galaxy Note is an important product category to us that has been continuously loved by consumers for the past 10 years in the global market. The S Pen user experience is an area that Samsung’s mobile business has worked harder on than anybody else. Their launch timing may be different, but we will make sure that we don’t let Galaxy Note consumers down.” In the meanwhile, Samsung will be launching two new smartphones in the series today in both 4G and 5G variants.
