New rumor claims the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will have an S Pen slot

Samsung may have decided to kill the Galaxy Note series.

Update, Sep 24 (2:40 a.m. ET): Another rumor claims the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a built-in slot for the S Pen

What you need to know

  • A new rumor suggests Samsung's Galaxy Note line may not make a comeback next year.
  • Instead, the company could make the Galaxy S line more "Note-like."
  • Future Galaxy S series flagships will apparently have less rounded corners and edges.

According to a new tweet from reliable tipster Ice Universe, Samsung may not release a Galaxy Note 20 successor next year.

If the tipster is to be believed, the Galaxy Note line is "over," and a follow-up to the Galaxy Note 20 may never arrive. Instead, Samsung is apparently going to make a few changes to Galaxy S series to make it more appealing to Note fans.

Despite having S Pen support, the Galaxy S21 Ultra failed to lure Note loyalists as it doesn't offer the full suite of S Pen features that the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has. The best Samsung phone of 2021 also lacks a dedicated slot for storing the stylus.

Samsung's future Galaxy S series flagships are tipped to have a "less rounded" design, but they aren't going to be nearly as boxy as the Galaxy Note series devices. The tipster also suggests the S22 UItra will have a 19.3:9 aspect ratio to accomodate a slot for storing the S Pen.

Since no other details have been revealed yet, it remains to be seen if this means Samsung will launch more than one Galaxy S series phone with S Pen support next year.

In addition to the Galaxy S22 Ultra, Samsung is also expected to launch a Galaxy Z Fold 3 successor with S Pen support sometime in the second half of 2022.

Samsung decided not to release a new Note this year due to the global semiconductor shortage. However, it did suggest that a new Galaxy Note model could be released in the future.

Update, Sep 24 (2:40 a.m. ET) ― The Galaxy S22 Ultra will reportedly come with a built-in S Pen slot

A new report from GalaxyClub claims the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a built-in slot for the S Pen, just like Samsung's Galaxy Note series phones. The publication claims to have found evidence of an "S Pen detector" inside the phone, which all but confirms the presence of a dedicated slot. The Galaxy S22 and S22+, however, are said to lack the S Pen detector. This could mean that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be the only S22 series phone with S Pen support.

While it may not impress Galaxy Note loyalists, the S21 Ultra is among the best Android flagships you can buy. Aside from S Pen support, the phone offers great camera performance, a gorgeous QHD+ 120Hz screen, and 5G connectivity.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
