Avoid cannibalization?

The information comes from the Korean media The Elec. While we don't know exactly why Samsung would have made such a move, rumors suggest that these staggered launches are meant to avoid cannibalization between the Galaxy Z Flip 2 and the Galaxy S21s. In other words, the manufacturer would like to ensure that the sales of Galaxy S21 do not negatively impact those of the Galaxy Z Flip 2 and vice versa.

Speaking of the next series of Galaxy S devices, Samsung reportedly intends to equip the Galaxy S21 Ultra with a stylus. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 could also be equipped with an accessory of this type. However, these changes would not be without consequences. According to rumors that have been running in the corridors of the web for a few days, the South Korean firm intends to abandon the Galaxy Note range, starting next year.
