It’s been about a year since Samsung officially discontinued the Galaxy Note series and two years since the last one came out due to Samsung skipping the high-end device in 2021.

We get it. The Note line was a great way to get a cheaper flagship that also carries the S Pen. Although the S Pen has been given to the device’s spiritual successor, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is about $200 more expensive than what the Galaxy Note 20 sold for.

It was the antithesis of what everybody else was doing at the time. As people began to embrace the form factor, the Galaxy Note eventually become a staple in the South Korea-based tech giant’s portfolio.
