The Samsung Galaxy Note series could make a comeback next year. As most of you know, Samsung decided not to release a Galaxy Note handset this year. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to come as a replacement, kind of.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will ship with an S Pen stylus. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra did not ship with one, but it does support it. Samsung is allegedly planning to announce several other devices with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in August, to fill the Galaxy Note series void.
The Galaxy Note series may make a comeback in 2022
That being said, the company didn’t give up on the Galaxy Note series entirely, it seems. We’ve seen reports before that the Galaxy Note series could make a comeback. Well, a tipster now says that it could happen in 2022.
According to Tron, Samsung is discussing the comeback of the Galaxy Note next year. Why? Well, because the Galaxy S21 Ultra sales allegedly did not meet Samsung’s sales expectations, despite the fact it supports a stylus.
Do take this information with a grain of salt. We’re not sure if there’s any truth to this. It’s a bit early for such discussions over at Samsung, as the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is supposed to be the main replacement for the Galaxy Note. The Galaxy S21 Ultra does support the S Pen, but it doesn’t ship with one.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 won’t include a slot to dock the S Pen like the Galaxy Note phones
What’s more, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 won’t exactly have a slot for docking the S Pen, like the Galaxy Note phones do. It will also ship with a specialized S Pen, as the company wants to avoid damaging the phone’s display.
It all points to the fact that Samsung may have scrapped the Galaxy Note series a bit early. Samsung may have opted to experiment this year, to see the reactions, and the demand. Depending on the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 3 sales, the Galaxy Note may make a comeback next year.
