The head of the mobile division of Samsung Electronics TM Ro (TM Roh) said that this year the company will abandon the release of one of the traditional smartphones. “Rather than introducing a new Galaxy Note, we will expand our favorite Note features to more Samsung Galaxy devices,” Ro said.
A top Samsung executive also said that durability will be a key feature of the brand’s planned flagships. “Our third generation of foldable devices will open up exciting new multitasking capabilities and increased reliability,” explained the entrepreneur.
The announcement of new Samsung smartphones is scheduled for August 11th. According to insiders, the corporation will show folding smartphones Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3, as well as smartwatches Galaxy Watch 4 and wireless headphones Galaxy Buds 2.
In March, the corporation’s top manager Koh Dong-Jin announced at the AGM that Samsung would not be announcing the Galaxy Note series smartphones in 2021. The representative of the corporation explained this step by the deficit in the semiconductor market. Rumors that the Korean manufacturer would postpone the release of flagships surfaced in late 2020.
