KEY POINTS

  • A leaker took to Twitter to suggest that Samsung might bring back Galaxy Note
  • Customers are still hoping for a new Galaxy Note to be released
  • Samsung focused on two foldable phone releases, Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3

Samsung Galaxy Note is reportedly returning to the market after the company halted production due to chip shortage, according to leaks.

Reports claimed that the next generation of Samsung Galaxy Note could be in the works, months after the Korean-based tech giant announced the halt of its production, BGR reported.

On Wednesday, known leaker Ice Universe posted a Twitter update that brought hope back in seeing the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 in the market.

He tweeted, "Note is over, but it’s not over. S becomes Note!”

 

In a previous tweet, the leaker posted another Twiter update telling how someone in the supply chain witnessed proof that the next-gen Galaxy Note is indeed on its way. He then added substance to his leak with information that someone saw the Note 22 Ultra chassis.

Ice Universe is known for posting early details on unreleased devices. He keeps followers updated on the Samsung flagship devices and is known for his rants on Samsung’s decision to cancel the Galaxy Note 21.

In March, Samsung announced that there will be no successor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 due to the ongoing chip shortage. This year Samsung instead focused on the release of the two foldable phones namely Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3. The two devices recorded well in terms of sales.

While users are aware that there will be no Samsung Galaxy Note 20 successor, many hoped that Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 will be the Note successors, XDA Developers reported.  However, the two foldable devices lacked a notable Galaxy Note feature. They both did not have built-in S Pen support.

Meanwhile, a lot of customers continue to hope that Samsung will bring the Galaxy Note back to the market. Peter Osvaldik, T-Mobile CFO called out Samsung for canceling the Galaxy Note 21 this year.

“Samsung has really fallen behind the eight ball relative to other OEMs on the global supply chain issue,” Osvaldik said, according to XDA Developers.
