Will the arrival of Samsung’s flip and foldable smartphone mean the end of the Galaxy Note series?

Tech giant Samsung had said that it would skip the One Note generation, but hinted at launching new smartphones from the family in 2022.

But if recent reports are to be believed, the South Korean tech company has decided to completely stop production of the Note series and remove the line-up from the 2022 product launch.

One of the main reasons behind this decision of Samsung is the new line of products in the foldable smartphone segment. Since the company is seeing high and growing demand for foldable phones and declining Note sales, it has decided to discontinue the latter and focus on flip and foldable.

By the end of 2021, the tech company will apparently end production of its Galaxy Note 20 series altogether. As of now, production of the Galaxy Note 20 continues as the device is still on sale.

According to reports, Samsung will bring the Note experience to the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which will be the spiritual successor to the Note 20 Ultra. The Galaxy S22 Ultra is the flagship model of the rumored upcoming flagship phone series and will sport a display that will be the brightest ever produced by Samsung.

The current Galaxy S21 Ultra smartphone clocks a peak brightness of 1500 nits, but in the upcoming line-up, one can expect the S22 Ultra to go beyond this mark.

As per reports, the much-awaited series will enter mass production in December this year. The smartphones in the line-up will be available for purchase from January 2022 and all models in the series are expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 chipset.

According to reports, Samsung plans to introduce a new 10PM telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom capabilities as opposed to the high-resolution sensor with poor optical zoom in the upcoming series. The Galaxy S22 series smartphone will feature a 10MP telephoto lens that supports 3x optical zoom instead of the hybrid zoom of the Galaxy S20/S21 era.

The tech giant also plans to take a different approach on the Galaxy S22/S22+ models that will arrive early next year.
