We’ve known for a while that Samsung’s Galaxy Note brand will die, and now it’s official, as revealed by the company’s mobile division president Roh Tae-moon at MWC 2022, according to South Korean publication Dalian.

Roh told reporters ahead of his visit to Samsung Electronics’ exhibit at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year that the “Galaxy Note would come out as Ultra” in the future.

Roh is, of course, referring to the new Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra flagship, which features an integrated pen, squared edges, and curved glass, making it practically a new Note in every way save the name.

Following Samsung’s decision to discontinue the business-oriented Note series last year, the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra in 2020 will be the company’s final Note-branded handsets, bringing an end to a fan-favorite line of devices that began with the original Samsung Galaxy Note in 2011.

Of course, Samsung’s Note series hasn’t always been easy sailing; in 2016, the company’s image was tarnished by the controversial Galaxy Note 7, which was recalled and subsequently terminated in the name of public safety owing to complaints of exploding batteries.

However, with the Galaxy Note 8, the Note series returned stronger than ever and has maintained a devoted following ever since. Thankfully, those enthusiasts will be able to get their Note fix from the newly redesigned S-series in the future, leading us to believe that it is the original S Ultra series that ought to be remembered.
