While Samsung's latest foldables have been the hot talks in the town for some time, many are wondering about the Note series as the company is skipping the series this year but claimed that new additions will come to the family next year. However, the latest reports suggest otherwise.
According to ET News via 9to5Google, Samsung has "pretty much confirmed" that it's ending the Galaxy Note series as the company has no plans for a new Note device in 2022 and the production of the Galaxy Note 20 series will end by this year.
Looking at the stats, the Note 10 and Note 20 series sold about 12.7 and 9.7 million units in 2019 and 2020 respectively. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Z Fold alone hit 13 million. Also, the reason why the Note series is selling well is because of its big screen and S Pen support. But now that the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold3 also have big displays and S Pen support, so it would make sense that the company is ending its production. Samsung could also be seeing the uptrend of foldable devices so we might expect new foldables to replace the Note series.
