To Note or not to Note, that is the question. The future of our beloved Galaxy Note series is in peril, and rumors fly in every direction, killing the Note or letting it live for one final moment before the final curtain. Samsung has been seriously entertaining the idea of scrapping the Galaxy Note lineup in 2021 in order to “unify the brand,” potentially merging the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines.
The next turn of the rumor mill brought us a quote from a Samsung official, saying: “We are preparing to release the Galaxy Note series next year.” So, what’s going to happen with the Galaxy Note series in 2021? A new rumor from Ross Young sheds light on the matter and offers one potential development, without contradicting the aforementioned statements.
The famous analyst – and CEO of DSCC – has published a batch of predictions on Twitter regarding the Note lineup. As it turns out, Samsung might release one final Galaxy Note model this year, but it won’t be the Galaxy Note 21. Instead, the Korean company may be planning to subject the Note series to the Fan Edition treatment – launching a Galaxy Note20 FE.
1) We now see Oppo and Xiaomi each launching a flagship using a Samsung LTPO panel in 1H’21.
2) Although now there is no Note 21 coming, we may see a Note 20 FE…
3) The lack of a Note 21 series means the S21 series will sell at higher volumes for longer and could outsell S10..
