The Galaxy Note has fulfilled its mission, the Galaxy S is capable of delivering a similar experience
When the news that Samsung will stop producing smartphones contributes to its name, that is Galaxy NoteThere has been a lot of debate posing that why not the Galaxy S? These are two high-end product lines of the Korean electronics company that are released annually. From the very beginning, the differences in features and product personalities of these two flagship lines were clearly evident for users to easily choose: the mid-sized Galaxy S always converges new technologies. Best; Meanwhile, the Note series gave birth to the phablet concept for the advantages of battery, screen, S Pen and technology that has been ripe for usability and reliability.
Galaxy Note & Galaxy S, two smartphones that have affirmed the strength of Samsung in the high-end segment for many years
Through a decade of parallelism, we can see an increasingly close image between these two high-end smartphones. The easiest to imagine, you look at the duo Galaxy Note20 Ultra and Galaxy S20 Ultra. This duo has most of the same specifications that used to be equipped with a “separate parcel” for the Note line such as a large 6.9-inch screen, Exynos 990 processor, 4 rear cameras + 1 front camera. Even the representative of the S series stands out with a 5,000 mAh battery, while because of the space for the S Pen, the Galaxy Note20 Ultra has to accept 4,500 mAh. It can be seen that the display space, performance and usage time between the two “stars in the galaxy” of Samsung are almost the same.
The S Pen is the soul of the Galaxy Note line, and it always will be. Even if there is another smartphone that works perfectly with this “cool” device, it is completely worthy for users to consider a true Galaxy Note model. And Samsung will do so when many recent leaks all indicate that the upcoming Galaxy S21 generation will support the S Pen. If this is true, the last stronghold to distinguish between the user choosing a Galaxy Note or S is no longer available, which in turn leads to the company better than choosing to focus on a single product line, avoiding the future. the scene “chickens fight each other”.
If there is another smartphone that works perfectly with this “cult” device, it is absolutely worth the user to consider a true Galaxy Note model and Samsung will do so.
Stopping the production of the Galaxy Note is definitely a difficult choice, but it is the right step of the Korean electronics company. Looking broadly, we will see that the most successful of the Galaxy Note is to make the icon of a large screen smartphone for a great user experience. The phablet concept was born and lost later because of the inspiration called “Galaxy Note” when almost the majority of smartphones today own screens size over 6 inches.
And when the Galaxy S21 continues to be equipped with the latest technological achievements on smartphones, while supporting the S Pen to satisfy the needs of users, it is time for Galaxy Note to retire because it has completed its mission. mine.
The Galaxy Note spirit passes into the Galaxy Fold when laying the foundation for a completely new smartphone segment
If the Galaxy S21 continues to promote the legacy of more than a decade of both Galaxy S & Note lines, with the Galaxy Fold / Z Flip product line, Samsung is laying the first bricks for the foldable smartphone segment. The image looks a bit like it was 10 years ago when the first-generation Galaxy Note was released. After a decade, Samsung is continuing to “stand alone” to explore a completely new smartphone segment that it believes this will be the future of phones.
After a decade with the Galaxy Note, Samsung is continuing to “stand alone” to explore a completely new smartphone segment
The recently revealed information about the S Pen equipment will appear with the Galaxy Fold3. In terms of the large screen + S Pen, this would be the product “with the same experience but different names” that every Galaxy Note fanatic is expecting.
In addition to creating an advantage as a leader, with foldable smartphones, the Korean electronics company can expect to increase revenue and improve profit margins thanks to the soaring 36 selling price. million for Galaxy Z Flip when launched or recently Galaxy Fold2 hit 50 million. The high-end segment always brings the most profits for manufacturers and certainly the Galaxy Fold / Z Flip case is no exception.
The advantage of the folding screen technology display will bring the new “martial land” of the S Pen for users to have a better drawing experience.
In the context that both the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note20 representatives do not achieve sales as expected, the fact that Samsung takes new steps will create the necessary change. Although the Galaxy S21 promises to be more attractive thanks to the S Pen from the Galaxy Note series, it will certainly face stiff competition from iPhone and new flagships from OPPO, OnePlus, and Xiaomi. So instead of trying to stay in the increasingly cramped $ 1,000 smartphone segment, reaching a higher segment with folding screen smartphones will be the right long-term strategy from Samsung.
The stop of the Galaxy Note on store shelves next year must cause a lot of regret for many users, but retiring from the iconic product line of the Korean electronics company is necessary. Stories of success have shown: daring to change can achieve greater things.
