So far we have heard a lot of news and rumors about the removal of the Samsung Galaxy Note series; But did that really happen or did Samsung have another goal?
As you probably know, Samsung is no longer going to unveil the Galaxy Note series phones. In fact, the production of these phones has stopped forever and we will no longer see products with this brand in the market. So far, there have been many rumors and rumors about the accuracy and inaccuracy of this issue, and after reviewing all of them, we came to the conclusion that Samsung really no longer wants to produce these phones and focus on phones such as the Galaxy S and Folding handsets will be flexible.
But the question that arises is why HP handsets? What was the purpose of removing this series and why did Samsung not remove the Galaxy S instead of this extremely popular and widely used series? Was there another goal in mind for the Korean company and did it really want to attract the attention of all users? Or was such an idea wrong from the beginning and Samsung should not have removed any families from its products? Should the Galaxy Note series really be canceled? Will the release be delayed (given that the release of the Galaxy Note 22 series will be postponed to 2022)? As it turns out, we were finally able to answer all of these questions. Because all the rumors and news point to the fact that the Galaxy Note series is no longer in use. But the truth of the matter shows something else; The Note series is back!
According to John Praser, one of the most credible and reliable technology revealers, the Samsung Unpacked event is scheduled to take place on February 8, 2022 (February 20, 1400), and of course you know Which will be unveiled from the Galaxy S22 series phones. The three flagships of the Korean company, as usual, include the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra, which will be officially available for purchase approximately 10 days after the unveiling, ie on February 18, and their pre-purchase is possible immediately after the unveiling.
According to the information we have, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus are supposed to be the same in all respects, except for the size and the items that change as a result of the resizing, such as the battery capacity. There is no difference between them. Among the appearance features of these two phones, we can mention the edges similar to iPhones and even better, ie less thickness. In terms of differences with the previous generation, we do not see any change other than getting wider.
There is no ultra-Galaxy S22; Hello Galaxy Note 20 Ultra!

But we come to the most powerful flagship Samsung expects, the Galaxy S22 Ultra. A product that everyone might refer to as the flagship of the S series, but the truth is something else. but why? Because the Galaxy S22 Ultra is known this time as a product with the capabilities of the Galaxy Note. Even in terms of design, there are many similarities between this phone and the design of the Note series phones, including support for the S-Pen and a place to embed it, as well as angular design.
Galaxy S22 Ultra As mentioned, it will be unveiled in early 2022, and this will make the processor that acts as the beating heart be Snapdragon 898 or Exynos 2200, depending on the market in which this phone and the other two models are offered. The type of this processor will also be different. In fact, this is how the Galaxy S22 Ultra should look; The Note series should have been unveiled in August 2021 with the overclocked version of the Snapdragon 888 Plus (in all respects), but for some reason it was postponed until February 2022.
If the camera sensors are used Note that on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, you will notice that if Samsung were to unveil the Galaxy Note 21 series, it would consider exactly the same sensors for the Note 21 Ultra. According to the many news and rumors that are available thanks to various news agencies and revelators, we know that the Galaxy S22 Ultra is going to use the same number of sensors this time compared to the previous generation, but with better quality. These sensors include the original 108-megapixel, 12-megapixel ultra-wide, 10-megapixel telephoto with 3x optical zoom (new sensor) and 10-megapixel telephoto with 10x optical zoom (new sensor). In terms of sensor size, we do not see any significant changes, but it seems that in terms of performance, thanks to the CPU boost and various software settings, we will see relatively better performance than before.
Why Samsung S and Merged the note?
Galaxy Note 20 Ultra alongside the Galaxy S21 Ultra
So far we have come to the conclusion that the Galaxy S22 Ultra is actually the same Galaxy Note 21 Ultra with the Snapdragon 898 chip. Although this is a very personal opinion, if we pay attention to its details, we will find that it is not irrational and can be really what Samsung had in mind; It means the merger of the Galaxy Note and S. series, a dream that many users had in mind, but for more sales, never came true, but finally with the arrival of the Galaxy series, that is, the same clamshell phones, we saw such a thing happen.
But why is Samsung doing this? Why did Samsung decide that the name to be removed would be one of the most popular, best, and most influential names in the history of smartphones, revolutionizing the design of these gadgets? Was it other than the fact that the smartphone industry owes its modern design to the innovations of the Galaxy Note series? So why did Samsung decide to keep the S series and remove the Note series? There are three reasons for this, which we will examine in the following.
The Galaxy Note series was designed for specific people but did not sell well
Sales! This could be one of the reasons why Samsung stopped production of this series. Almost all of us know that Android phones have not sold well in the last 5 years at all, and it has always been Apple that has been at the top in terms of flagship sales. We are not talking at all about the overall performance of the phones themselves. Rather, we mean the desire of users to buy these phones, which has not been satisfactory at all. They introduced and we see many of them in Apple phones. Of course, removing the charger and headphones from the box and removing the 3.5 mm jack from the phones were also features that went from Apple's flagships to Android dealers. However, Android phones always make a lot of noise in the Pro and Ultra models, but at the same time, mid-range and economical phones from the Android world are more noticeable to users.
Samsung's position as the largest company The manufacturer of Android phones and in general the largest phone manufacturer in the world is no exception to these companies. The company is not doing very well in the flagship sector, and the last time a flagship from Samsung was in the top 10 in terms of sales was the Galaxy S9 in 2018. While products like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, the Galaxy S21 series and even the S20 performed well, they were not even close to selling the top 10 phones. Of course, this includes the Galaxy S series and other flagship Android phones, but it seems that the situation of the Note series was not very good.
The Galaxy Z Fold is the future of the Note series phones
The second reason , Are clamshell phones. The products that Samsung unveiled and launched in the exact same month that it often unveiled the Galaxy Note series phones. On the other hand, the Galaxy ZFold 3 now also supports the S-Pen, and although there is no compartment for the stylus inside the phone, it still seems to be the future of the Galaxy Note series because of the lack of a stylus compartment. It could change and get better in the near future.
Currently clamshell phones do not have a stylus holder due to their special design, but the Galaxy Z Fold 4 may change that. If that doesn't happen, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will definitely do just that. This could allow Samsung to remove the S-Pen from the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S24 in the coming years and return to the current situation. In fact, it means that until those years, Samsung can consider the level of interest of users and see if they need the S-Pen in their phones or not. Then decide according to their needs and interests. So for now, clamshell phones seem to be one of the biggest reasons why the Galaxy Note series has been taken off the Korean company's line.
Apple and again Apple
third and last The reason why Samsung has underlined the name of the Galaxy Note is Apple iPhones. But you may be wondering what Apple and its iPhones have to do with Samsung and the Galaxy Note series? Apple phones will hit the market in September, and the Galaxy Note series will often launch in August, a few months ago, so that may have scared Samsung.
If Samsung fears the iPhone, Postponing the launch of the Galaxy Note series to February was a smart move. As you know, Apple phones have always been more powerful and better in terms of power and processing speed than the phones that Samsung unveiled earlier that year, and fans of the Korean company had to wait for the new year to unveil a worthy competitor for the iPhones. As Samsung unveiled two flagship generations each year, but used either a processor or a plus model for each processor, the difference in performance with Apple was huge, and users saw the specifications and ratings on paper. They showed no interest in buying Samsung dealers. As a result, Samsung should have thought about this.
The fact that the company decided to put a gap between the unveiling of its flagship phones and Apple is a smart move, especially since Samsung will unveil its galaxies a few months after Apple. That way, he will no longer have the fear of being chased by iPhones. Of course, it's not just Apple that Samsung should be afraid of. Companies such as Xiaomi and OnePlus have also made significant progress in recent years, and these days they have been able to attract a lot of positive feedback from users with their representatives. Samsung must be careful of these companies as well, as they also unveil their flagships in the first half of each year. Of course, there will be no news about OnePlus T this year, but maybe the Chinese company wants to unveil a series of other products instead.
Galaxy Note 20 Ultra alongside Galaxy S21 Ultra
Finally, but we think this is Galaxy S22 It is ultra that fans and enthusiasts of Samsung phones will never see its unveiling, nor the Galaxy Note 22 Ultra, because just naming a phone does not make us forget its lineage. The name changes but the body shows nothing but stability and reminds us of a product other than the Note.
Was it right to merge S? This move by Samsung seems to have been right and clever. In this way, both special users who are looking for specific phones can buy the Galaxy S22 series, as well as users with moderate needs. Professional users now focus only on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, while regular users focus on both the Standard and Plus models. In the meantime, it is only the Korean company's pricing policy that can be quite effective in determining the sales of the company's expected flagships.
If Samsung had eliminated the S series and replaced it with the Galaxy Note series. Every year, users were confronted with handsets they had seen similar to last year, and there was nothing more than a series of regular upgrades. But now the situation is different. Now users are looking at the Galaxy S22 Ultra as a product that has a new and great feature with the addition of a stylus and storage compartment. Few people have the patience to analyze the fact that there is no news of the addition of a new feature; Samsung has only played with the name, and if it succeeds in selling the flagship, its policy should be applauded.
However, we expect the Galaxy S22 Ultra to be priced at $ 1.199 instead of the base price. The $ 1,299 base will hit the market because the company has added a pen to the box and a storage compartment inside the phone. Are you willing to spend that much for a premium and extremely luxurious phone from the Samsung Galaxy S-Note series in the base model, or should Samsung prepare for another big failure in the sales of the flagship phone?
Keep in mind that if these rumors and rumors about the price of Samsung's expected flagships are true, then phones like the iPhone 13 Pro Max are $ 100 cheaper, the iPhone 13 Pro $ 200 cheaper, and most likely Likewise, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be cheaper than Samsung's powerful dealer. As for the iPhone 14 series, it can be said that in the worst case, their price will be the same as the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
On the other hand, the good representative of Google, the Pixel 6 Pro, is about $ 400 from the Galaxy S22. The Ultra will be cheaper with a base price of $ 1,300. Of course, with the difference that Google sells its phones in only 11 countries and Samsung in all parts of the world. That's why the Pixel 6 Pro may not be a serious threat to the company, but in the same 11 countries, users may not be able to justify the $ 400 price difference between the two phones, so go to a Google representative.
Wait and see what happens in February 2022. Can Samsung make a big change in the existing policy by adopting a new policy, which is in fact only a minor name change, or will it fail again and not be as effective as it should be? What do you think about this? Is Samsung's powerful and long-awaited flagship, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is actually a combination of the Note and S series, worth the $ 1,300 for the base model?
What do we know about the Galaxy S22 series? ?
This year, like every other year, the Galaxy S22 will be available in three models: Standard, Plus and Ultra. We have to see their official unveiling on February 8, 2022 (Tuesday, February 10, 1400). But the standard model, the Galaxy S22, according to many news agencies, has a display with FHD + resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and a size of 6.06 inches, Galaxy S22 Plus with a resolution of 120Hz, but a size of 6.55 inches, and finally the Galaxy S22 Ultra. QHD + resolution, adaptive 120Hz refresh rate with portability between 10 and 120Hz and 6.81-inch size will be on the market.
In terms of camera and appearance, the three phones are fundamentally different from each other. Of course, the difference between the standard and plus models is only in size, but both of these phones are different in terms of module design, overall body design, material used in the body and display design. For example, the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus will have the same design as the previous generation, but the Galaxy S22 Ultra does not have a special module on its back panel, because the cameras are individually located on the back panel and in the form of a P number.
In terms of sensor size, it is said that for both standard and plus models, the original 50-megapixel sensor will be used. they give. While in the Ultra model, the main camera is still the same 108-megapixel sensor, but this time from the third generation and naturally more advanced, 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, two 10-megapixel telephoto cameras with 3 and 10x optical zoom and 40-megapixel selfie. They play a role in photography and filming.
Finally, we come to the battery, which is said to be declining in capacity this time compared to the previous generation. According to the latest information available in this field, it seems that the batteries of these phones from the standard to Ultra models are 3500, 4500 and 5000 mAh, respectively. The main reason for the decrease in battery capacity is the reduction in screen size, but it seems unlikely that other than the Ultra model, the other two phones will perform well in charge storage; Unless the Exynos 2200 or Snapdragon 898 chip really does work well in terms of power consumption and help Samsung satisfy users. Otherwise, the Korean company may not be able to achieve the success it expects.
