Samsung skipped the Galaxy Note series this year, announcing that new smartphones will be released in 2022. It appears the company is not living true to its word. Samsung has permanently terminated the Galaxy Note Series in order to enhance the sale of foldable devices, according to the latest report from South Korea. In the second half of the year, the decision was made to stabilize the yield of foldable production and cut costs by improving process efficiency, consequently replacing the flagship sales volume.
Discontinuing Samsung Galaxy Note Series to boost Foldables Sale
According to the research, Samsung supplied 12.7 million Note series handsets in 2019 and 9.7 million units in 2020. The Galaxy Z series is expected to ship 13 million handsets annually by 2022, according to Samsung. As a result, the Samsung Note series’ fundamental capabilities are expected to be integrated into the future S22 Ultra. The S-Pen (optional) was integrated with the S21 Ultra and Z series phones this year.
“It was confirmed that the Galaxy Note series was excluded from the 2022 annual smartphone production plan,” report claims.
The company is working on the Galaxy S21 FE, which will be released early next year, ahead of the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The phone’s marketing brochures have just leaked, allegedly revealing the final features.
