The Galaxy Note Is Dead. Long Live The Galaxy Ultra.

It was the phone that made big phones “a thing;” the phone that brought back the stylus; the phone that kept Samsung superfans spending top dollar year after year. But, the bigger and more powerful Samsung made its Galaxy S smartphones, the harder it was for the Galaxy Note to stand out. And once folding phones started sliding into that super-premium position (complete with an S Pen in the latest generation), well, you could say the writing was on the wall. After 2020, the Galaxy Note would be no more.

But for those who still prefer their phones without a hinge; those who missed an S Pen that came with somewhere to put it; and those who prefer an assertive, squared-off design, it was too soon to say goodbye. And apparently Samsung agrees. I’m Michael Fisher and the Galaxy Note is dead. Long live the Galaxy Ultra.
