2021 will live on in the minds of Samsung fans forever, like the year the Galaxy Note line died. After the traditional launch event passed without news of the Galaxy Note earlier this year, a new report says the Note is practically dead.
That’s from the korean site ET News, which says there won’t be a new Note device in 2022 either. Instead, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is likely to get S Pen input support, including the ability to store the stylus in the body of the phone.
Currently, both the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 3 can use the S Pen, but neither device has onboard storage for the little stylus, so you need a thick case or you risk losing it.
The Galaxy Note 20 is apparently wrapping up production later this year as well, with Samsung focusing on its other flagship line, folding ones like the Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Fold.
They want to increase the production of folding devices, which are becoming more desirable as the first problems have largely been solved.
It looks like the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be the Galaxy Note 21 in all but name. Will reportedly having a 6.81-inch screen and a dock to place the S Pen when not in use. The only thing left is to see if it will have a more boxy design than the other two usual models in the Galaxy S range, which will make it look even more like the Note anyway.
Do you really care if your digital whiteboard bears the Note mark? if it can do all that the Note brought to the industry? Samsung is betting it won’t, not once the latest Galaxy S devices hit the market.
