The past 2020 was not as good and successful as Samsung would like. The company retained its leadership in the smartphone market, but its problems in this segment only worsened. After 10 years of releasing premium Galaxy Note series devices, the South Korean giant refused to develop the line further and one of the reasons is the increase in sales of the Galaxy S21 family. But in the end, the bet did not work.
Samsung Galaxy S21 series sales: pride or disappointment?
There was no failure, but there is no need to talk about success either. According to The Elec, the company sold as many devices as it sold the Galaxy S20 models in 2020. We are talking about 20 million mobile phones. Considering that the industry was hit by serious turbulence two years ago due to the coronavirus pandemic, which ebbed off last year, sales of the Galaxy S21 series fell short of the company’s expectations. It clearly counted on more in the conditions when the market returned to growth.
The source claims that Samsung blames manufacturing problems for its failures. Especially those that arose at the company’s factories in Vietnam. It seems that from a commercial standpoint, ditching the Galaxy Note series seems like the right thing to do. It is unlikely that sales of the Galaxy Note 21 would be at a high level.
