There are already a lot of rumors circulating about the next high-end smartphones to be released next year. And the media is particularly interested in the next generation of Galaxy S smartphones that Samsung is about to bring out.
Recently, our colleagues at Sammobile spread a rumor about the Galaxy S21 Ultra, launched by the Ice Universe Twitter account (a source that has good credibility). According to this source, the device supports the Samsung S pen pen, which was previously the trademark of the Galaxy Note.
Yes, I can 100% confirm that S21 supports Ultra S Pen

However, Sammobile says that while the Galaxy S21 Ultra supports the S Pen, the smartphone may not have a slot for the pen.
The end of the Galaxy Note
Of course, this information is not official at the moment, so caution is advised. However, this is not the first time there has been a rumor that the S Pen is supported by smartphones other than the Galaxy Note.
Also, there are rumors that suggest that Samsung may be giving up the Galaxy Note line and that the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra could be the last models. And the fact that the Galaxy S21 Ultra could support the S Pen gives those rumors even more credibility.
It is recalled that Samsung was kind of a pioneer with the Galaxy Note, offering smartphones with XXL screens that support a stylus. But little by little, very large screens have become the norm (today even Apple offers models with very large screens).
Furthermore, if we can use the S Pen pen on a model like the Galaxy S21 Ultra, we may wonder if the Galaxy Note range still has a reason to exist.
In any case, the Samsung Galaxy Note has a huge number of fans. And it is very likely that Samsung will not be happy if Samsung decides to end this space.
Galaxy S21: a presentation in January
With the next high-end smartphones from Samsung, the waiting time could be shorter than usual. The Korean giant traditionally presents its new Galaxy S in February. But this year the manufacturer could launch its new smartphones as early as January.
Why ? This would allow Samsung to quickly revive after a bad 2020 due to the pandemic.
However, this has not yet been confirmed by Samsung. However, recently an official for the manufacturer stated that given the current changes in the market, none of its traditions are immune.
