As a reminder, the Galaxy S22 Extremely replaces the Notice vary which is now not of a lot curiosity at present. It thus embeds a stylus immediately built-in into its shell and is positioned within the ultra-premium section.
The primary Galaxy Notice was obtainable in 2011 and had two robust arguments to persuade: its large 5.3-inch display (gigantic for that point) and the presence of a stylus. Over time, the panels of smartphones have grown and the Notice has misplaced its fundamental options.
Gross sales of the Galaxy S22 Extremely surpass these of any Galaxy Notice
In 2016, Samsung needed to take away the Galaxy Notice 7 from sale as a consequence of quite a few circumstances of battery explosion. That didn’t cease the Galaxy Notice Eight from reaching 10 million models bought in 2017.
However the next years, gross sales crumbled. The most recent mannequin was obtainable in 2020: the Galaxy Notice 20 (and Notice 20 Extremely). A product that clearly did not persuade the crowds. Samsung reportedly launched solely 600,000 models from its factories. We will attribute this poor efficiency to the Covid, but additionally to the dearth of curiosity within the smartphone.
Whereas the Notice 20 clearly wasn’t a foul smartphone, it didn’t supply something unbelievable for its value. It might now not depend on its dimension (panels over 6 inches have turn into a norm) and the stylus was now not sufficient.
Samsung has due to this fact determined to fully abandon the Notice vary. The relay was taken over by the S22 Extremely, which takes up all of the options of the Notes: massive display (not less than bigger than the opposite S22 fashions) and presence of a stylus. A method that is sensible and pays off.
