The Galaxy Note 2021 death knell keeps getting louder

The Galaxy Note 2021 death knell keeps getting louder

Ask not for whom the bell tolls, Galaxy Note, it tolls for thee! Another set of sources delivered bad news for fans of the main Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone lineup this week. Earlier whispers of the demise of the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone appear to have been corroborated, with a "sharp drop in demand for high-end smartphones due to the coronavirus pandemic" as a main factor in the equation.

Galaxy Note 21 might still happen next year with a catch

Galaxy Note 21 might still happen next year with a catch

Reports of the Galaxy Note line's demise might be exaggerated or premature. Those reports were mostly based on rumors that the Galaxy S21, particularly the Galaxy S21 Ultra, would gain the one feature that sets the two products apart. A report from South Korean media does seem to confirm that Samsung has gotten the ball rolling to give the Galaxy S21 Ultra its own S Pen. At the same time, however, it also gives Galaxy Note fans one last hope, at least until next year.

Galaxy S21 S Pen rumors take one step forward, one step back

Galaxy S21 S Pen rumors take one step forward, one step back

While the Galaxy S21's expected very early debut suggests it might not have much in the way of new grand features, it seems there is one that may still make the cut after all. Long believed to herald the demise of the Galaxy Note line, the Galaxy S series has been rumored to support the S Pen stylus year after year. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is believed to finally be it, but it won't exactly replace the Galaxy Note in one important way.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 might come with a new but different S Pen

Galaxy Z Fold 3 might come with a new but different S Pen

A foldable phone is already an admittedly impressive milestone for Samsung and the mobile market in general but the actual vision for such devices doesn't stop there. Although not exactly essential to the concept of a foldable device, the use of a stylus on what looks like a digital book or notebook has almost become expected, especially if the Galaxy Z Fold is meant to replace the Galaxy Note line. That may finally happen next year but it will require a rather big change in Samsung's S Pen technology.

Galaxy Note 20 is a missed opportunity

Galaxy Note 20 is a missed opportunity

Samsung just dumped a number of new mobile products this week, all of them premium, which you can easily tell by their price tag. That Galaxy Note 20 Ultra alone carries some of the best specs you'll see in the smartphone market, along with one of the highest prices as well. There is probably no doubt that these features, on their own, will deliver as advertised, perhaps save for the still questionable performance of Samsung's camera systems, but smartphones and their specs cannot and do not exist in isolation. For all the high-end and exceptional features its boasts of, the Galaxy Note 20 and especially the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra might come off as a bit tone-deaf to the world they've been born into.

LG Velvet advertises active stylus support on Galaxy Note 20 debut

LG Velvet advertises active stylus support on Galaxy Note 20 debut

Samsung has traditionally had the monopoly of phones with active styluses, though Huawei at one point was able to launch one that was compatible with the other kind of battery-powered Wacom-enabled pens that Samsung's Galaxy Note phones didn't use. LG does have its only line of stylus-toting devices but those are pretty much just thin counterparts of regular passive styluses you can easily buy on the cheap. The mid-range LG Velvet, however, is different and LG is making sure the public knows about its less advertised powers and it's not really being subtle about pitting it against the more expensive Galaxy Note 20.

Apparently, that's not entirely the case and there's still enough room for some small details to complete the whole picture. Fortunately, one such leak is providing those pieces, revealing a partnership between Samsung and Microsoft that is growing beyond simple pre-installed apps.

iPad Mini and bigger iPad tipped with faster chargers

New versions of the longest lasting tablet brand in the world are rumored to appear in stores in the near future. As noted by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple's likely set to release a new 10.8-inch iPad in the second half of the year 2020. That'd be anywhere from June to December - and more likely earlier than later. It's not yet known if this will be an "iPad Air" model or not. It's possible this would be a replacement for the current 10.2-inch iPad (no Air, Mini, or Pro).

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 images tip giant screen, single speaker

Today a set of images leaked details for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, a device with a nearly full-frontal coverage display and a large camera array at the back. The back side of this device is quite simple - a rectangle in the uper left-hand corner with an array of high-powered lenses and a giant LED flash. The front appears to roll with a giant display and a single circular cut-out in the center of the device's forehead.
