New Delhi: With no update to the Galaxy Note 20 series, the smartphone giant, Samsung, seems to drop its one of the most popular galaxy Note series phone in 2022. Samsung didn’t launch a new Galaxy Note smartphone this year and officially confirmed it had no plans to do so and now as reports are trending the production of older models has also being shelved.
Possibly Samsung’s folding ‘Z’ series could replace the Note series
The main reason behind doing away with the Note series for another year is reportedly the success of the company’s Z-series of folding and flipping phones. The Galaxy Note 10 and 20 series, as per a report, counted 12.7 million and 9.7 million orders in their years of launch which are 2019 and 2020. On the contrary, the Galaxy Z Fold alone reportedly counted 13 million orders.
The increasing interest in foldable phones could be the final nail in the coffin for Samsung’s ‘phablet’ which the company may now consider an unnecessary proposition between the S-series and the Z-series.
The Galaxy Note series always emphasised on three major features – powerful performance, big screens and support for stylus – S-Pen. Today, flagship performance can be found on both Samsung’s S-series as well as the Z-series, in both Snapdragon and Exynos variants.
If Samsung does ditch the Galaxy Note series, the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra may end up being the last of the Galaxy Note series, which began back in 2011 when the company launched the first Galaxy Note.
To note, the South Korean smartphone maker hasn’t officially confirmed the end of the Note series but the writing has been on the wall for quite a while now.
