In fact, as early as January 2021, the well-known digital blogger @ice universe already broke the news that the Samsung Note series has been confirmed to end. The absence of the Note series at the end of 2021 also confirms that @ice universe’s revelations at the beginning of the year were correct.

As a flagship series model released in 2011, the first-generation Galaxy Note can be said to be representative of large-screen mobile phones at that time. The series is equipped with a 5.3-inch screen and a unique stylus, many consumers feel novel, and with the stylus design, the machine also brings different gameplay from other Android phones. Since then, Samsung has started to focus on the dual flagship strategy, which is to release the Galaxy S series in the first half of the year and the Galaxy Note series in the second half.

Eventually, Samsung stopped updating the Galaxy Note series in 2021, exactly 10 years. The Galaxy S21 Ultra in 2021 uses the iconic S Pen stylus design of the Galaxy Note series for the first time. The Galaxy S Ultra has since started to overlap in design with the Galaxy Note series, which was a hint at the time, and now Galaxy S Ultra to carry on the Galaxy Note series legacy.
