UPDATE (December 17th, 2020):

A new report from a South Korean publication Yonhap News has cited an unnamed Samsung official to claim that the Galaxy Note 21 is confirmed to arrive next year. He has been quoted as saying, “preparing to release the next Galaxy Note series next year.” In response to Roh's comments about Galaxy S21 Ultra getting S Pen support, he added: “Roh’s message does not mean that the Galaxy Note series will be discontinued.”

It seems like we are all set to get the Galaxy Note 21 series next year despite S Pen support expanding to the Galaxy S series. This is undoubtedly a good piece of news for all Galaxy Note series fans.


Original (November 30th, 2020)

The rumor mill is divided about Samsung's plans for the Galaxy Note series. There have been reports that the Galaxy Note series will be ditched next year but some leaks also claim the opposite. A fresh report from ETNews mentions that Samsung still has the Galaxy Note series in its future roadmap of new devices.

Samsung is widely rumored to release the Galaxy S21 Ultra with the S Pen support in early 2021. The company has placed orders for Digitizers, an essential component for enabling stylus support on display panels. The upcoming flagship is one of the models set to arrive with S Pen support. The second model is the Galaxy Z Fold 3 that is tipped to be stylus compatible.

The inclusion of S Pen to these two new phones is the reason for the belief that the Galaxy Note lineup is near the end of its lifecycle. But the new report and even a tweet from the tipster Cozyplanes make a claim otherwise. The user tipped that a new Galaxy Note phone will be launched in September 2021. The launch is expected to happen at the same event as the Galaxy Z Fold 3 but th

The tweet further mentions that Samsung does have plans to kill the Galaxy Note series but not next year. It is said the phablet series will actually be shut down in 2022. It seems like we will have to take all these leaks with a pinch of salt for the time being and until we get concrete proof about Samsung's plans.
