Samsung is taking popular smartphones out of the game

Samsung will definitely draw a line. The South Korean company is saying goodbye to the hugely popular Note series. Not just for this year it seems.

Samsung does not extend trademark rights to the Note series

So far, Samsung has only confirmed that there will be no new Note smartphones this year. Accordingly, no Galaxy Note 21 was presented. Instead, Samsung relies fully on foldable devices and is also successful with it. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 are selling extremely well. That probably means the end of the Note series .

At least in South Korea, Samsung has not registered the trademark rights again (source: GalaxyClub). The Galaxy A, Galaxy M, Galaxy S and Galaxy Z series were backed up there, but not the Galaxy Note. So it should really be clear that Samsung is phasing out the Note series after so many years.

The Galaxy S and Galaxy Z smartphones try to appear as an alternative. An S Pen is available for the Galaxy S21 Ultra (for testing) and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 (for testing). Since this cannot be stowed in the housing , this solution is not really well received by users. They still want the Note series. But if the Note smartphones have not sold well, they will not be continued for a few interested parties.

Samsung gives up a unique selling proposition

In our opinion, Samsung is giving up a USP. No other manufacturer in the world has sold a smartphone like the Galaxy Note. The foldable cell phones also have a unique selling point, but this will be copied by many Chinese manufacturers in the coming months.

Of course, we don't have to do without the S Pen completely due to its compatibility with the other models. Perhaps Samsung will come up with a way of better integrating the pen into the cell phone. What we have to do without, however, is a high-end smartphone for the second half of the year in order to be able to compete against the respective iPhone. The folding cell phones can't keep up with that.
