0 0

Samsung has confirmed that there will be no Galaxy Note phone this year and it looks like the series has been killed. The company will apparently redirect Note users to new foldable Galaxy Z smartphones, which may follow the same launch framework as the Note 20.

According to Yonhap News, Samsung is expected to host an unpacked event for Galaxy Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3, and Galaxy S21 FE between early and mid-August. Samsung was previously rumored to be advertising Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 in July, and Galaxy S21 FE on August 19. The new phones will reportedly be released in late August.
Last year’s Z Flip 5G, which was a more powerful, 5G-enabled version of the OG Flip, was released in August. That Galaxy Z Fold 2 went on sale in September and the Galaxy S21 FE FE hit the shelves in October.
Samsung apparently hopes that a simultaneous release of new smartphones will fill the gap left by the Galaxy Note. Note 20 was available for purchase on August 2nd.
The company also does not want to have too large a release gap between the Galaxy S21 series and its new flagships. Samsung’s latest flagships started strong, but demand may have been began to clap out.

Galaxy Z Flip 3 is cheaper than Z Flip 5G

The report also confirms rumors that Galaxy Z Flip 3 becomes cheaper than Flip 5G. In Korea, it is expected to cost about 500,000 South Korean won (~ $ 450). Z Flip won 1.65 million (~ $ 1,483) at launch.

In the United States, the Z Flip 5G had a launch price of $ 1,449, but was later reduced to $ 1,199. The Z Flip 3 costs between $ 990 and $ 1,199.
The price of Fold 2 is also marked with $ 200, and Z Fold 3 is supposed to at least match the new price of $ 1,799.
Today’s report also claims that The Galaxy S21 FE will sell for 700,000 won (~ $ 629), which means it will cost about the same as the S20 FE, which was priced at $ 699 at launch.
All three phones are likely to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. Galaxy Z Fold 3 is likely to be equipped an under-display camera and S Pen support, and the Z Flip 3 comes with a larger cover display than the Z Flip 5G. We expect them to be among best phones of the year.
