Whereas Samsung’s cell boss TM Roh has telegraphed plans to bring stylus support to more phones throughout its lineup, there should still be a brand new Galaxy Word in 2021. An nameless Samsung official tells Yonhap that the corporate is “making ready to launch the Galaxy Word sequence subsequent 12 months” and that “Roh’s message doesn’t imply that the Galaxy Word sequence might be discontinued.”
Samsung declined to touch upon the specifics of Yonhap’s report when contacted by The Verge, however supplied the next assertion:
Samsung confirms plans to carry a number of the most beloved options of the Galaxy Word to extra machine classes in 2021. We stay dedicated to offering the very best cell expertise to our customers and can proceed to actively hear and think about shopper suggestions in all our product improvements. We can not share any additional particulars presently.
The apparent query, if Yonhap’s report is correct, is how Samsung will set the Word sequence aside. This year’s model already felt such as you have been paying for the S Pen help alone, contemplating how the Galaxy S20 FE outpaced it on specs and undercut it on worth.
The Note 20 Ultra was a extra compelling — albeit costly – proposition, but it surely’s onerous to see the way it’d match alongside a presumable full complement of stylus-compatible Galaxy S21 units with comparable display sizes. And the Galaxy Z Fold 2 reveals that foldable telephones could quickly be a extra broadly viable choice on the prime finish of Samsung’s vary.
Samsung is expected to unveil its widely-leaked subsequent flagship Galaxy S telephones in January, a bit of sooner than ordinary. We’ll have to attend and see if that lineup leaves any gaps for a possible Word 21 to fill.
