According to a Korean technology website DDaily, Samsung Electronics will not launch a new smartphone in the Galaxy Note series in the second half of this year. It doesn’t mean that the company is discontinuing the series, news products under the series will launch next year, but no fixed time is decided yet.
Samsung CEO Dong-jin Ko, head of the information technology and mobile communications (IM) division of Samsung Electronics at the company’s 52nd shareholders’ meeting said that the S Pen was implemented on the Galaxy S21 Ultra and it’s difficult for the company to launch the Note series in the second half of the year.
“The disparity between the supply of parts and demand in the information technology (IT) side is severe.” “We are checking the parts supply problem every morning. It is difficult to say that it is 100% resolved. It is a bit of a problem in the second quarter. We will report as a result so that there is no business disruption.” DDaily quoted CEO Ko as saying.
