With the release of its Galaxy S22, Samsung was able to confirm the bad news: no Note series smartphone is planned for the next few years. The Galaxy S22 Ultra’s adoption of the S Pen stylus would allow it to replace Note smartphones.
Samsung launched its new high-end Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra smartphones earlier this week. Without being revolutionary, they bring some improvements compared to the previous generation, but above all the Ultra model has the particularity of inheriting the design and functionalities of the smartphones of the Galaxy Note series.
Indeed, the smartphone resumes a design very similar to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra of 2020and even offers a built-in stylus. With the arrival of key Note features on the mainline, it’s no surprise to see this iconic series bowing out. While waiting for the detailed tests of the Galaxy S22, you can already go and discover our handling of all the models.
Samsung definitively bury its Galaxy Note series in favor of foldable smartphones
It has now been several months since the end of the Galaxy Note series loomed on the horizon. Samsung, for example, had stopped production of all its Galaxy Note smartphones, indicating that the series would soon leave the market. Now, with the release of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, Samsung has finally been able to confirm strategy change.
” In the short term, our business will focus on a two-series strategy: the flagship S-series in the first half and the innovative foldable range in the second half. Roh said. ” We will keep this strategy until there is another major breakthrough and we are working hard to make it happen. “.
Over the next few years, Samsung will therefore bet everything in the second half on its high-end foldable smartphones. Our colleagues from The Elec had also revealed that Samsung planned to significantly increase production of its future Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, which will be launched this summer. Indeed, the Korean giant is planning to produce nearly 2.9 million Galaxy Z Fold 4 in 2022, and 6.9 million Galaxy Z Flip 4, much more than in previous years.
