Samsung could skip the Galaxy Note this year

At the annual general meeting reported by Bloomberg, Samsung Electronics warned that the Galaxy Note may not be released in 2021 as it will be difficult to get two large phones within a year.

In response to the impact of major global semiconductor disruptions, the company has become the biggest tech giant and has raised concerns about a chip shortage outside the auto industry.

"Samsung is one of the largest manufacturers of consumer electronic chips in the world, and this crisis is expected to cause problems for its global business in the next quarter," said co-CEO Koh Dong-jin at the annual general meeting in Seoul.

The company is also considering not releasing a new Galaxy Note (one of the best-selling models) this year, although Jin said his goal is to simplify the product line.

"The global IT division has a very mixed supply and demand for chips," said Jin, in charge of the company's IT and mobile divisions.

"Despite the difficult environment, our company leaders are still meeting with partners abroad to solve these issues. It is hard to say that the shortage problem has been 100% resolved," he added.

The co-CEO said Samsung, the world's largest smartphone maker, is working with partners abroad to fill gaps and avoid potential setbacks in its business.

Jin said: The Galaxy Note series has been positioned as an advanced model in our product range, and the launch of the two main models could become a burden within a year, so it may be difficult to get the Note model released in the second half of the year and the time of release of the Note model may change, But we'll try to release our feedback form next year.

With Samsung announcing that it will introduce the main stylus feature on more phones in its Galaxy series, the Galaxy Note, released this year, is still not secure.

However, according to a report by Yonhap News, Samsung is still preparing to launch a new Note phone in 2021.
