Although Samsung had cancelled its plans for a new Galaxy Note this year, it does not mean they are not going to make new phones.
Currently, Samsung has once again regained the top spot in the smartphone market share this quarter, after being briefly defeated by Huawei in early 2020. According to a local outlet in South Korea, Samsung had shared its roadmap of smartphones they are planning to manufacture, which include the Galaxy Z Fold 3, S21 FE, and Galaxy Z Flip 3. According to said source, the company is planning to release these phones around August.
The said month appears accurate, as the Galaxy Z Flip 3 has been leaked early this month and is also reported to be launched this July, alongside the S21 FE. Also, the Z Flip 3 appeared on the 3C certification website with model number SM-F7110. There are also rumours that the Z Flip 3 may come with an S Pen.
The Galaxy S21 was launched as part of Samsung’s Galaxy S-line of flagships early in January to take on the demands of the iPhone 12 series. In addition, the Galaxy S21 FE has had renders appear and some sources say that this phone will launch this July.
According to Canalys, Samsung has a high number of smartphone shipments during Q1 2021, with at least 76 million phones shipped, and has a market share of 22%. The company also had a YoY growth of 28%.
