Both in Europe and around the world, the pandemic has wreaked havoc on the electronics market. Spending more time at home triggered demand for all kinds of components and devices, and production capacity, far from improving, was reduced for the same reasons and more.
Where we have noticed it the most is in the market for PCs with graphics cards (where in addition to limited production, cryptocurrency mining prevents us from getting a new one) or consoles from new generation such as the PlayStation 5. And although it may not seem like that, also affects the production of smartphones.
Samsung to ignore Galaxy Note due to chip shortage
In the past few months, there has been a controversy surrounding the demise of the Galaxy Note. The main reason cited by several analysts was the absence of leaks
It was Koh Dong-jin himself, CEO of Samsung Electronics, who formalized it. The Samsung boss made a few statements regarding the chip shortage, among which he ended up pointing out a hiatus from the Note range.
“The Note series is positioned as a top-of-the-range model in our portfolio. It would be a heavy burden to unveil two flagship models in a year, so it would be difficult to launch a Note model in the second half of the year. Notes posting times may change, but we plan to release a new rating next year. “
The S21 Ultra is Samsung’s most advanced mobile with SPen, and it falls short of what the Note line offers.
Bad year for Galaxy Note enthusiasts. On the one hand, the Note 20 Ultra was a less convincing mobile than its predecessor due to the reduced autonomy, while the bet to include an SPen in the Galaxy S21 Ultra although it has its appeal and is an alternative for those who They use the SPen, the compromises that it raises make that the user experience is not at the level of a note.
Galaxy S21 Ultra review with SPen: more different from the Galaxy Note than you might think
We tested the Galaxy S21 Ultra with SPen to see if the experience is really capable of replacing the Galaxy Note.
On a personal level and as the owner of a Note 10+ and with the desire that I had to find a worthy successor, this discourages me. Luckily for hardware support and updates, there’s still a long way to go.
