Another report claims that the Galaxy Note lineup will be discontinued in 2021.

Three sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters that Samsung may kill the Galaxy Note lineup next year. The South Korean company reportedly has no plans to develop a 2021 Galaxy Note model. Resources that are typically directed to the Galaxy Note lineup have been redirected to the foldable phones according to a second source.

Korean publication TheElec reported in August that the Galaxy Note series will be discontinued next year as the upcoming Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold3 will support the S Pen. ETNews reported a few days ago that Samsung plans to release only one Galaxy Note model in the second half of 2021 as it shifts the focus into foldable phones.

Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note series in 2011, which created a new category of devices. These devices, also known as phablets, come with bigger-than-usual display sizes. The Galaxy Note series is also known for the S Pen, which is a stylus that can used for taking notes and doodling.
