Samsung has recently confirmed that on the 11th of August, they will be hosting an Unpacked event where it will most likely see the company launch new foldables. For those who are hoping to see a new Galaxy Note handset, that will not be happening as Samsung has once again confirmed that there will be no new Note handset this year.

According to Samsung Electronics’ President & Head of Mobile Communications Business, Dr. TM Roh, “We are out to set new heights and open up a whole new world of exciting experiences for even more people. I hope you’ll join us as we debut our next Galaxy Z family and share some foldable surprises — including the first-ever S Pen designed specifically for foldable phones. Instead of unveiling a new Galaxy Note this time around, we will further broaden beloved Note features to more Samsung Galaxy devices.”

It should be pointed out that prior to this, Samsung did state that they will be skipping the Note series this year due to chip shortages. This was preceded by rumors that Samsung may be killing off the Note lineup, which was only fueled by the fact that Samsung finally gave its Galaxy S-series S Pen support, something that was previously exclusive to the Note series as far as Samsung smartphones were concerned.
