At Samsung’s 52nd Annual Shareholders Meeting, DJ Koh, co-CEO of Samsung’s IT and mobile communications division, confirmed that this year it will be difficult for the company to release the new Galaxy Note 21 series.
Koh added that the reason behind this was the chip shortage and the conflict with existing products. As a reminder earlier this year, Samsung launched this Galaxy S21 Ultra which comes with S Pen support.
Koh also mentioned that the company is not phasing out the Galaxy Note series and that Samsung will be offering the Galaxy Note 22 series.
DJ Koh said, “Galaxy Note is an important product category for us which has been continuously appreciated by consumers over the past 10 years in the global market. One area where Samsung’s mobile business has worked harder than anyone else is the S Pen user experience. Their launch time may be different, but we’ll be careful not to let Galaxy Note consumers down. ”
Meanwhile, Samsung is set to launch its new Galaxy A series of smartphones today. The company has scheduled the Galaxy Awesome Unpacked 2021 event at 7:30 p.m. The event will be broadcast live on the company’s official website and on the YouTube channel.
Although the company has yet to reveal the names of the devices it may launch at the event. But it is expected to unveil the 4G and 5G variants of the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 smartphones.
