Samsung will not launch new mobile phones from its Galaxy Note family of high-end terminals this year due to the shortage of semiconductors that affects the electronics industry, as indicated by the CEO of Samsung Electronics, DJ Koh, but the series is maintained and planned launch new devices next year.
Since the end of 2020, Samsung Electronics sources had advanced to the local South Korean press that Samsung planned to cancel the Galaxy Note family, since one of its distinct elements, the S Pen stylus, would make its arrival to the other family of the brand’s flagship, Galaxy S21, launched in January.
Koh, who participated in a shareholders event at the Suwon Convention Center, in South Korea, now confirmed that the tech giant will not launch new Galaxy Note this year 2021. Samsung used to launch this family in late summer.
However, the South Korean executive ruled out that this range be canceled, and expects new phones of this type to be launched next year 2022.
“It is not that we are not going to launch new products (Galaxy Note). The schedule may vary, but we are preparing to continue doing so next year”, Koh explained.
