samsung fans started a couple of ays ago to sign a petition to get new Galaxy Note phones instead of the Galaxy S flagships series next year. The petition already has thousands of signatures.
Customers are urging Samsung to alternate between the flagship lineups to keep them all alive.
It may be a lost cause, but they're going for it nevertheless. Fans are petitioning Samsung to bring back the Galaxy Note series as early as the first half of next year when it's usually the time Samsung releases their series of flagships to launch.
The petition on Change.org urges Samsung to skip the Galaxy S22 series and launch new Galaxy Note phones instead.
“The Galaxy Note lineup of smartphones is loved by millions of fans around the world, and they were pretty disappointed when Samsung said it wouldn't be launching a new Note flagship in 2021, partly because of the chip shortage that has gripped the industry,”From the petition
Samsung decided to dump the Galaxy Note this year. To replace it, the company is releasing the galaxy z fold 3 and Z Flip 3 on August 11. It's also launching a new S Pen (sold separately) designed to work with foldable phones and will kind of bring some “Note features feeling” to the next-gen of samsung galaxy devices going forward.
The people signing this petition comment that Samsung “could keep all of its flagship lineups alive by alternating between them, all while keeping all of its fans happy at the same time!”
More than 8,000 people have already signed the petition with a target of 10,000 signatures.
Should Samsung ditch Galaxy S22 for new Galaxy Note phones?
It seems highly unlikely that Samsung will pay any attention to online requests of dumping the Galaxy S22 series in favor of Note phones. The company's new foldables will be no older than six months by the time the new Galaxy S series arrives.
The Galaxy S21 series has done quite well for Samsung in sales given its lower pricing compared to the S20 series. Samsung would likely want to continue that streak with the S22 phones.
