Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra as its last Galaxy Note series smartphone in 2020.


Samsung recently launched the Galaxy S22 series worldwide. The new Samsung flagships will go on sale very soon in India. Samsung launched three flagship smartphones under the S22 series. While the S22 and S22+ share the same design as their predecessors, the S22 Ultra got a major makeover. Samsung launched the Galaxy S22 Ultra with a boxy design and an S Pen slot that reminds you of the Galaxy Note series.

There were rumours of Samsung discontinuing the Note series and today, Samsung has officially confirmed the death of the Note lineup. However, one of the key characteristics of the Note series will remain. 

Samsung Galaxy Note Series Discontinued 

Samsung has discontinued the Galaxy Note series officially. The company’s smartphone chief Roh Tae-moon confirmed the death of the Galaxy Note series. The top chief told reporters (via The Verge) at MWC 2022 that the “Galaxy Note will come out as Ultra.” In case you haven’t realised this yet, Tae-moon was referring to the Galaxy S22 Ultra as the new Note.  With the inclusion of an S Pen slot, the Galaxy S22 Ultra has all the features that Samsung’s Galaxy Note series offers in a smartphone. These include a big display, powerful performance, software tweaks for the S Pen that enhance productivity and creativity, flagship camera sensors, etc.

Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra as its last Galaxy Note series smartphone in 2020. The Note series was then replaced with Samsung’s futuristic foldable line of smartphones. The latest set of foldable smartphones from the brand is the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. The company is rumoured to include an S Pen slot in the Z Fold 4 this year. Therefore, although Samsung has killed the iconic Galaxy Note series, the impact is not as hard considering the fact that the Galaxy S22 Ultra offers everything that you need from a Galaxy Note.
