Samsung might not launch the Note series this year

After months of rumors and reports that Samsung will stop launching new phones from the Galaxy Note series to devote itself to developing its foldable devices, the company has finally confirmed that it may not release any new Galaxy Note phones this year.

This confirmation came from the chief of Samsung's phones division, Mr. Koh Dong Jin, who confirmed that the company may not be able to launch new Note phones this year due to what he called a "serious defect" in the supply and demand for semiconductors, but it will resume launching phones in this series next year.

This shortage makes the release of two flagship smartphones series in one year a difficult matter for Samsung this year, given that the Note series is one of the best-selling series for the company, which means producing large quantities of these phones that require a large number of processors which is something that even Samsung cannot guarantee it, so it would be safe to skip releasing the Note series this year.

Certainly, Samsung will not be the only company that will suffer from this shortage, but other companies will follow it, although its harms will be uneven, and the flagship smartphones will not be the only victim of this shortage, but even the mid-range and budget phones may be subject to supply disruption in the future as well.  And for those who were hoping the release of the Note 21 series to buy or upgrade to them, Samsung had launched last January the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which is an excellent phone with strong specifications despite its rather high price, and it also supports the S pen, so it may be the best option for them now, or they can wait with their current phones until next year when Samsung releases the next Note phones.
