Back in 2011, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note series by launching the world’s first smartphone with a display larger than 5-inch screen size. Apart from the flagship Galaxy S series, the Galaxy Note smartphones with S-Pen have succeeded in creating its own fan base. With the bezel-less displays, even the smartphones with 6-inch screen size are now widely adopted. Based on the leaks, the S Pen will only be the major difference between both the Galaxy S9+ and upcoming Galaxy Note 9.
Now, the company seems to bid adieu to the Galaxy Note series after launching the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9th in New York. According to the source, Samsung is looking to integrate the Galaxy Note series features into the Plus variant of the upcoming Galaxy S smartphones. During its Quarterly Business Review, the company is said to have informally mentioned about the merging of Galaxy Note and Galaxy S series.
The Galaxy Note 8 & Galaxy S9+ devices came with a 6.3-inch and 6.2-inch Super AMOLED Infinity displays respectively. Based on the recent reports, Samsung will also unveil its foldable smartphone in early 2019. The Galaxy S10 will be launched somewhere around MWC 2019, and the rumors suggest the company to bring three variants of Samsung Galaxy S10. If all this comes out true, then the Galaxy S10 will be competing with other budget flagship smartphones.
While the Galaxy Note series users will find their favorite features in the Galaxy S10+, the small niche of early adopters can go for the company’s foldable smartphone. Samsung continues to dominate the market share of the flagship Android smartphones. However, the Chinese brands are giving a tough fight for the Samsung’s budget smartphones. We expect to get some sort of confirmation from the company at the Unpacked event scheduled for August 9th in New York.
