Samsung has confirmed that no new Galaxy Note models will be unveiled at the August 11 event. Does this mean the death of the family?
What has been one of the most iconic mobile families in recent years, Samsung’s Galaxy Note will be without a model in 2021, as confirmed by the company. Many rumors indicated that the company was considering not launching any model with this brand this year and has finally confirmed that this will be the case.
On August 11, the company’s new foldable phones, this year’s Galaxy Fold and Flip will be unveiled. In this month in other years, the Galaxy Note was announced, models that have had less and less relevance since the only feature that differentiated them from other models was the S-Pen.
As stated by the company, “instead of introducing a new Galaxy Note this time, we will further expand Note features to more Samsung Galaxy devices. In the meantime, stay tuned for our Unpacked event on August 11 to see what happens.”
Is this the end of the Galaxy Note?
It is unclear if there will be a future for these handsets, or if no model in 2021 spells the end of the family.
There was speculation, although this has not been confirmed, that Samsung would have been affected by the lack of chips and has prioritized foldable over the Note.
Perhaps next year we will see a launch within this family, although it may also depend on consumer response to the Fold 3, which will have compatibility with the S-Pen, and a special case to store it, something similar to what they did with the S21 Ultra.
