When Samsung launched the Galaxy S22 Ultra as a part of the Galaxy S22 series earlier this year, everyone assumed that the company's Galaxy Note series was dead. With flat-screen design, squared edges and support for SPen stylus, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is the much-awaited successor to the Galaxy Note 20 that Samsung never launched. However, at the time, Samsung didn't share details about the fate of its Galaxy Note series. Now, almost a month later, the company has confirmed that the Galaxy Note series is officially dead.
Speaking to the reporters on the sidelines of its event at the ongoing MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2022, Samsung's smartphone chief Roh Tae-moon said that the "Galaxy Note will come out as Ultra." In other words, the Galaxy Note series is dead and it will be survived by the top model in the company's premium Galaxy S-series smartphones. The move also marks a change in the company's flagship lineup, which now includes the Galaxy S-series and the foldable display smartphones consisting of the Galaxy Z Flip series and the Galaxy Z Fold series.
Or in other words, customers who still want to use the stylus with their Samsung smartphones will have to splurge at least Rs 109,999 in India.
