Sometimes ago, rumor surfaced that Samsung will discontinue its Galaxy Note series of smartphones. However, Samsung officially debunked the news of end its Note series device since the launch of the Galaxy S21 lineup. Now, the reason why the Korean tech giant wants to continue making one of its most popular Android handset lineup.
According to a new tweet from tipster @FrontTron, Samsung will bring back its Note models due to the non-encouraging market response to its high end flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra with the S Pen. The sales of this model were lower than what the company had expected. Thus, the brand is reportedly “discussing” launching the Galaxy Note series again next year. Although, this isn’t exactly news as Samsung had already announced its plans to launch new Galaxy Note devices in 2022.
For those unaware, the Galaxy S21 Ultra did not meet the expectations of the company’s Note series userbase. While the Galaxy Note devices offer a port to house the S Pen, this basic feature is missing on the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Furthermore, the high end model even lacks Bluetooth support for the S Pen as well. In other words, it doesn’t offer the same gesture based feature that the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra offers.
It will come back. Yes. You heard it right.
They are discussing about it since the S21 Ultra with S-Pen's market response and sales record hasn't met their expectations. https://t.co/ZfgILVfg9I

Unfortunately, if this reasoning is true, Samsung is even rumored to follow a similar design philosophy for its upcoming Galaxy Z Fold3. This upcoming foldable model may not include a built in port for the S Pen either. However, this is still an unconfirmed report so take it with a pinch of salt, and stay tuned for more updates as we will be covering the Unpacked event that is expected to reveal additional details regarding this device.
