The Galaxy Note 21 now looks dead – and that’s a good thing

There is a strong chance that we will not see a Galaxy Note model this year. That’s not just subtle profiteering, either. Samsung itself has thrown cold water on its plans for a Galaxy Note 21 last week, with mobile boss Koh Dong-jin telling Bloomberg that a global chip shortage could mean new Note in 2021.

If that’s the reason Samsung wants to provide for any new Note, that’s fine with me. But the company would just as well say that we have seen the last one of the Galaxy Note this year and beyond.
