Samsung's Galaxy Note series is one that we talk about a lot here on Android Central. With flagship specs, impressive displays, and the iconic S Pen, they're some of the most powerful flagships of any given year. For 2021, that looks to be changing.

We've seen a lot of rumors that Samsung will include S Pen support for the Galaxy S21 Ultra that's expected to launch in January, and now it's being said that Samsung isn't working on a Galaxy Note 21 at all.

The possibility of Samsung killing the Note series is huge, and as you might expect, it's gotten a lot of people in the AC forums sharing their thoughts on the subject.

With the rumor of the S21U supporting S-Pen... will the N20U be the last? :eek: I mean except for the built-in silo, why release a Note 8 months after the S21U only for an S22 to come out four months later in January? :confused: https://twitter.com/UniverseIce/status/1326802372920705024 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bS0241RXcLU


If it does I won't be upgrading. What is the point of pen support if you have nowhere to put the pen? Something else I have to carry with me and hope I don't lose it or break it.


unless it has a port for the s-pen, imo, it is useless. I do not want to keep track of the pen and most likely lose it. Fortunately the rumor also says no port, no pen included. I will stick with the note series at this time.

me just saying

I don't think they kill the Note yet. The Fold is still just a gimmick and they wouldn't give up that Fall launch window to the iPhone and Pixel. Samsung has a lot of phones and with the underlying tech very similar for the S series and Note it likely doesn't cost a lot more to produce the Note.


Now, we want to hear from you — What do you think about Samsung ending the Galaxy Note series?
