According to the report issued by The Elec Korea, the successor to the Galaxy S20 referred to as Galaxy S21 will come with the S Pen, but this feature will be limited only to the Galaxy S21 Ultra. The Galaxy S21 Series lineup is expected to debut in the first half of next year. The Galaxy S21 is said to have the codename “Unbound” and will arrive in three models named M1, N2 and O3. And it looks like the S Pen will arrive with the O3.
Samsung has reportedly not confirmed the launch of the Galaxy Note 21 next year yet, but speculation has surfaced that Samsung will discontinue the Galaxy Note Series lineup and instead launch the Galaxy Z Fold 3 with the S Pen. This may mean that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S Series in the first half, and the Galaxy Z Fold / Z Flip phones in the second half of the year.
With the start of mass production of Ultra Thin Glass, Samsung has the capacity to produce 600,000 foldable screens per month with the ultimate goal of creating one million foldable screens per month by the end of the year. Samsung might not sell as many foldable devices as with the Galaxy Note Series, but the high profit margin for foldable devices could offset the lower sales. The Galaxy S21 Series lineup could also garner more sales.
Samsung already has several high-end smartphones, and downsizing is not a bad idea. How do you feel about the lack of the Galaxy Note Series lineup, and what do you think about getting the extravagant Galaxy Z Fold 3 with the S Pen?
