Sources continue to confirm that the South Korean tech giant will relaunch the Galaxy Note series of smartphones next year, as we first announced yesterday.
In March, Samsung Electronics CEO Dong-jin Koh announced that the company had changed the release schedule for new models in the line, but did not abandon it. Now, one of the reasons why Samsung will return the Galaxy Note series to the market next year has become known.
According to insider information, the market reaction to the flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra with support for the S Pen stylus was not what the company had hoped. Sales of the device turned out to be lower than expected, so Samsung was only convinced that the Galaxy Note needed to be returned.
Recall that the new Galaxy S21 Ultra does not have a slot for storing the stylus, while support for the S Pen stylus in the smartphone is limited (the gadget does not support communication with the smartphone via Bluetooth and the corresponding control functions).
In addition, S Pen support is expected to be added to the new Galaxy Z Fold 3, which features a foldable screen. However, this device should also not have a place to store the stylus.
