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.

Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department.

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to
