The Samsung Galaxy Note series is the Korean smartphone maker’s successful flagship series that stood out for having a large screen and an S Pen. After 10 years since its introduction in 2011, ETNews has reported that Samsung will stop production of the Galaxy Note series at the end of this year.
The Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra introduced last year are the latest Galaxy Note devices that you can buy at the moment with about 3.2 million units that have been produced so far. It was recently reported that Samsung has completely dropped the Galaxy Note series from its 2022 smartphone production plan which is seen as the final nail in the coffin.
As hinted late last year by the head of Samsung Mobile, Dr TM Roh, they are bringing the S Pen experience to more Galaxy devices. In 2021, we saw the support for the S Pen for the Galaxy S21 Ultra as well as the latest Galaxy Z Fold 3. The S Pen is also available on a number of Samsung tablets including the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, Galaxy Tab S7, and the Galaxy Tab S7 FE.
S Pen with built-in silo to live on with the Galaxy S series
While there’s no new Galaxy Note, die-hard fans would be happy to know that the same S Pen stylus with an integrated silo is expected to be offered in the Galaxy S22 Ultra as confirmed via several leaked photos. The upcoming device is speculated to feature a 6.8″ Quad HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and it will come with a 5,000mAh battery. The new device is expected to be announced sometime in mid-February 2022. The inclusion of the silo is much more elegant than the current Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 3 which require a special case to hold the stylus.
Previously, Samsung has the tradition of launching the Galaxy S series in the first quarter of the year, followed by the Galaxy Note series in Q3. With its new focus on foldable devices such as the Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip series, it probably makes more sense for Samsung to release one non-foldable flagship series each year.
