What started as a far-fetched rumor back in August has only gained more traction in the past months and now it looks just about certain that Samsung will in fact discontinues its Galaxy Note line. The latest confirmation comes from Reuters and is based on three sources with close knowledge on the matter.
The rumored move is expected to reflect the lowered demand for flagship smartphones in relation to the ongoing pandemic. Samsung is allegedly planning to relocate its development resources to its foldable phone range. One of the sources also mentioned Samsung is planning to bring S Pen support to its Galaxy S21 Ultra and next foldable phone with the smart stylus being sold separately in either case.
We’ll just have to wait a bit longer to see if these rumors are true as Samsung is expected to debut the S21 line in early January.
