As reported, Samsung does not have plans to develop a new version of the Galaxy Note for 2021, three sources said. Instead, the Galaxy S21 will have a stylus and the next foldable phone will be compatible with a stylus, which will be sold separately.
Samsung first launched the Galaxy Note in 2011, helping Samsung overtake Apple to become the world’s largest smartphone maker for the first time that year.
Instead, the Galaxy S series’ top model, the S21, will have a stylus and the next version of Samsung’s foldable phone will be compatible with a stylus, which will be sold separately, one of the sources said.
A second source said company development efforts that normally would have been directed to the Note would now be channelled into its foldable phone range.
