What happened? There are many indications that Samsung intends to destroy the Galaxy Note series, and we may have just received the strongest sign. It was recently revealed that the Korean giant has yet to renew the Galaxy Note brand and it shows what the end of this long streak could be.
We already know there won't be a new Galaxy Note this year, which may have been the Galaxy Note 21. Samsung CEO Koh Dong-jin told shareholders in March that there could be a "burden" from launching two flagships in year, and that the chip crisis may have played a role in the decision.
The Note brand doesn't endorse this line, but it's definitely a bad omen for a device that helped promote the word "phablet." This was written on the wall when reports last year claimed that Samsung was bringing compatibility with the S-Pen, the Note's most distinctive feature, to other devices. This was confirmed with the release of the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold3, although there is no dedicated slot for the S-Pen. In the future, maybe after 2022, but with the company focusing on clamshell devices, it will be more like the Galaxy Note 20 / Note 20 Ultra as the latest known series.
