    Long live the Galaxy Note, or, err… the Galaxy S Ultra! Samsung's Galaxy Note series has been an iconic lineup for over a decade now but it couldn't survive post 2020. We all know how Samsung ignored the Note lineup and quietly integrated all its features into the maxed out Galaxy S Ultra since 2021's Galaxy S21 Ultra. Samsung never spoke on what happens to the Note lineup in the last two years and with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra pulled off the shelves, it was time Samsung gave answers.

    In a media statement, Samsung's TM Roh has said, “starting this year, Galaxy Note will appear in the form of S Ultra every year,” as shared by tipster IceUniverse. That's nothing new, considering this year's Galaxy S22 Ultra is essentially a spiritual successor to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra from 2020. But what gets confirmed that there won't be any new Galaxy Note devices in the future, unless Samsung decided to revive it.

    Samsung Galaxy Note is laid to rest

    The cancellation of the Galaxy Note series was necessary though, given how similar the flagship Note and flagship S devices were becoming. In fact, in 2020, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra was largely similar to the Galaxy S20 Ultra, except for a different shape, the S Pen stylus, and less capable cameras. It was only logical for Samsung to merge the two and make a super flagship. This eventually happened in the Galaxy S22 Ultra and the sales figures have proved it.

    In Counterpoint Research's top 10 selling smartphone list, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra topped the charts for Android phones, beating the entry-level Galaxy A series devices, and only being beaten by the four iPhone models.

    We had tested the Galaxy S22 Ultra earlier and found it to offer currently one of the best user experiences you can get on a smartphone. The Galaxy S22 Ultra comes with the S Pen and a productive large display, which is currently the best you can get on any smartphone. Accompanying that combo is the highly capable camera system that impressed us with its still photos, especially its zoom camera system.
