As the news of Samsung deciding to discontinue its Galaxy Note started making its rounds on Sunday, the company announced that it would be selling limited edition festive colors in the US.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 5G and Z Flip 5G are now available for a limited time, in a pair of new colors- red and white (matching the festive Christmas color codes). Both colors are being produced in “limited quantities,” Samsung says, and there’s no difference in specs or pricing between these and the original models.
As per the standard color releases, the Note 20 5G is currently available in copper, green, and gray, while the Z Flip 5G is available in copper and gray. Although they’re not getting the new colors, the Ultra version of the Note 20 is also available in white and black, while the 4G version of the Z Flip comes in black, purple, and gold. The new colors for the Note 20 5G and Z Flip 5G are available to order from Samsung’s online store starting today, the company says.
On the other hand, rumors of the Galaxy Note lineup being merged with the Galaxy S in 2021, originated from South Korean outlet AjuNews. Two reliable Samsung tipsters have also claimed that there is no Samsung Galaxy Note 21 on the docket for next year and that the company’s foldables will take priority.
Samsung’s 2021 roadmap includes seven major releases, but not a single Galaxy Note 21 device. Rather, the company’s 2021 lineup will include the Galaxy S21, S21+, S21 Ultra, S21 FE, as well as three new foldables. The Galaxy Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3, and a new, more affordable Galaxy Z Fold FE.
The report says that the code name for the Galaxy S21 next year is ‘Unbound’ and the models are numbers M1, N2, and O3. The top-most model, rumored to be the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, is expected to be the ‘O3′ model. According to reports, the Samsung Galaxy S21 range will not come with the 3D Time of Flight (ToF) sensors.
It has also been reported that the popular Note S Pen will be added to the successor to the Galaxy S20 Ultra, so as to continue its legacy. Meanwhile, Samsung is said to be improving its A series further, which has contributed a lot towards the company’s sales this year. According to a news report, the midrange lineup will inherit the Galaxy S20’s high-resolution sensor and zooming capabilities.
