It won’t Galaxy Note 21. Partly because Samsung is pushing foldables and partly because of the global shortage of chips. But a new rumor has it that the company is planning a spiritual successor.
The Galaxy S21 FE could be a Galaxy Note successor
Evan Blass reported that Samsung plans the coming Galaxy S21 FE as the successor to the Galaxy Note 20 series and not the Galaxy S20 FE, which seems to reflect the importance of the model for sales. A picture shared in response to the original post shows Samsung’s disappointment with the Previous performance of the Galaxy S21. The sales volume of the flagships in 2021 is only 70% of what the Galaxy S10 series saw a few years ago.
It is worth noting that these disappointing numbers were reached at a time when Samsung has much less competition than usual. Huawei is completely out of the picture outside of China and Xiaomi is still struggling in the premium market.
Samsung also relies on the Galaxy Z line
Marketing the Galaxy S21 FE as a replacement for the Galaxy Note may seem odd considering it doesn’t have a built-in S Pen or acts as a premium flagship, even if it still turns out to be one of the best android phones in 2021.
