This year, Samsung decided not to offer an update to the Galaxy Note 20. At the same time, the company said that this does not mean abandoning this line at all, it was only decided to pause the release of smartphones of this series. At the same time, we do not know when Samsung will return to the release of devices of this family.
New product within the Galaxy Note line may appear next year
Among the reasons for this step, the company named a shortage of components. Although it was obvious that Samsung did not breed internal competition. The bet was on the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which was the first in this series to offer stylus support. But unlike the Galaxy Note series devices, this smartphone does not offer a slot for an electronic pen with a Bluetooth module.
Today we received a message that the new product in the Galaxy Note series will appear next year. According to rumors, the experiment with stylus support in the bigger version of the Galaxy S series was unsuccessful. The company is unhappy with the sales statistics of the Galaxy S21 Ultra and therefore decided to return to the idea of releasing the device as part of the Galaxy Note line. Before the first half of 2022, the smartphone should not be expected.
Experts say that the most popular model was the Galaxy S21. So, in South Korea, it accounted for 52% of all sales of the Galaxy S21 family. While the Galaxy S21 Ultra accounted for 27% of the total volume of delivered devices in the series. Among the reasons for the low demand are the high price tag and support for a stylus without a Bluetooth adapter.
