Samsung's plans to kill the Galaxy Note series have been rumored for a long time. A new leak has surfaced that suggests Galaxy Note's demise is closer than ever. Max Weinbach, a well-known tipster, has tweeted a list of all Galaxy flagship phones that will be released next year. It includes Galaxy S and Galaxy Z series phones but there is no mention of the Note lineup.
Weinbach has tweeted a total of seven smartphones that will be launched in 2021. These include Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus, Galaxy S21 Ultra, Galaxy S21 FE, Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Galaxy Z Fold FE. He has further revealed that three of these phones will come with S Pen stylus support but has not specified which ones.
Samsung flagships to expect this year:— Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) November 15, 2020
Z Fold 3
Z Flip 3
Z Fold FE
A previous leak claimed that Galaxy S21 Ultra will be the phone to get the S Pen stylus support. It seems it is confirmed to be one of three phones that Weinbach is referring to. The other two phones could be from the foldable range which could be the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. The Galaxy Z Fold FE is likely to be an affordable version of the foldable phone as we have seen with the likes of Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy Note 10 Lite.
This is not surprising considering Samsung would like to focus on its standard Galaxy S flagships and foldable phones The latter phones are likely to replace the Galaxy Note lineup. Lastly, we would say that Weinbach has not said anything Galaxy Note series' future yet. It is only a speculation based on the fact that the list does not include even a single Note model.
