It is looking increasingly likely that Samsung is not going to launch the Galaxy Note21 series next year. There have been rumors of Samsung ditching its Galaxy Note21 series for next year which has now been corroborated by two Samsung leakers.
As per Max Weinbach, Samsung intends to launch only the following flagship devices in 2021:
- Galaxy S21 FE
- Galaxy S21
- Galaxy S21 Plus
- Galaxy S21 Ultra
- Galaxy Z Fold3
- Galaxy Z Flip3
- Galaxy Z Fold FE
The Galaxy S21 series has already leaked in renders and rumors indicate the lineup will launch in mid-January, a month earlier than its usual timeframe. The successor to the Galaxy Z Flip and the Galaxy Z Fold is also planned by Samsung, with the Galaxy Z Fold FE being an interesting addition to the lineup. There's no mention of the Galaxy Note21 series by Max Weinbach, with leaker Ice Universe also claiming that there's currently no information on the development of the Galaxy Note21 series which is very unusual.
Samsung apparently intends to add S Pen support to at least three of its flagship smartphones launching next year. Rumors indicate the Galaxy S21 Ultra will support S Pen, though it might not have a slot to house one. This move further indicates that Samsung could be looking to kill its Galaxy Note lineup next year, with the Galaxy Note20 series being the last in the series.
What do you think about Samsung killing its Galaxy Note lineup?
