Samsung S Pen & Note Series Here To Stay, More Pen Models Tipped
Samsung has categorically denied rumors that they will discontinue the Galaxy Note series next year to the extent that more devices may get an S pen in the future.
Earlier this month several publications including ChannelNews reported that Samsung was set to stop production of their flagship phablet line.
The speculation that Samsung is set to reconfigure its premium smartphone lineup with Galaxy Z foldables and Galaxy S devices after ditching the Galaxy Note family that is highlighted by S-Pen stylus features has now been dismissed.
Samsung’s mobile business chief Roh Tae-moon hinted in one interview that the world’s largest smartphone maker intends to support S-Pen stylus in more Galaxy devices in addition to the Galaxy Note phablets.
Industry officials predict that Samsung may make the stylus available for the high-end model of the Galaxy S21 smartphone that is expected to be unveiled in January
“We are preparing to release the Galaxy Note series next year,” a Samsung official said last night in South Korea.
The Korean Herald claimed that while some people claimed that Roh’s latest message points to Samsung’s discontinuation of the Galaxy Note series, the official denied such speculation.
“Roh’s message does not mean that the Galaxy Note series will be discontinued,” the official said.
Samsung first introduced the Galaxy Note series in 2011. The South Korean tech giant has been launching new Galaxy Note models in the second half of the year.
