Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, Z Fold 3 and S21 FE: Samsung will likely stop the production of the Galaxy Note series. The company has confirmed that they won’t be launching the Galaxy Note series this year. It appears there are trying to use the new foldable Z smartphones as its most expensive line up device.
This means, fans of Galaxy Note series will have to migrate to the more expensive and premium looking Z fold series. With that said, it appears that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 will debut same time as the Galaxy S21 FE this year.
A report from Yonhap News says that Samsung is expected to hold an Unpacked event for the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3, and the Galaxy S21 FE between early and mid-August.
Previous report rumored that the company will announce the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 in July, and that the Galaxy S21 FE will be announced on August 19. But, the new report is claiming all three Galaxy phones will be released by the end of August.
Last year, the more powerful and 5G enabled Z Flip 5G was released in August. And the Galaxy Z Fold 2 was available for sale in September and the Galaxy S20 FE was released in October.
Releasing series of new smartphones is a way for the company to fill the gap that will be left by the Galaxy Note.
