Samsung claims reports of the Note's death have been greatly exaggerated

Samsung's Galaxy Note series offers some of the most expensive phones around, but 2020 hasn't been super kind to the high-end smartphone market. Earlier this month, rumors started swirling that Samsung was considering crumpling up its Note line in favor of focusing on foldables. Now the company is rebuking the rumor mill, claiming that the Note's retirement is not in our immediate future.

Samsung reportedly abandoning the Galaxy Note line in favor of foldables

Samsung reportedly abandoning the Galaxy Note line in favor of foldables

Samsung made history back in 2011 when it unveiled the Galaxy Note — a huge (well, at the time) 5.3" phone with an S Pen stylus included. Since then, it's become synonymous with Samsung's top-of-the-line flagship experience. But next year Samsung is poised to set history in a different way. Grab a tissue, because 2021 may see the Galaxy Note line tossed into the trash can.

Photo Of Alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 Leaked, Complete With Ridiculous Physical Nav Buttons

Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 is due for a refresh along with its smartphone cousin. If you've been waiting for a high-end Samsung tablet (or just a tablet that's considerably larger than the current 10-inch breed), the folks at Korean site MovePlayer may have spotted it. A single photo of a hitherto unseen Galaxy Note 12.2 bearing the obviously huge screen and Samsung's increasingly ridiculous physical Home button was leaked earlier today.

According to the leak, the newest Galaxy Note's 12.2" screen uses a 2560x1600 panel, which seems to be the de-facto standard for high-end Android tablets at 10" or larger.

Official CyanogenMod 10 Nightlies Arrive For The Galaxy Note (International And AT&T)

Official CyanogenMod 10 Nightlies Arrive For The Galaxy Note (International And AT&T)

While many people are patiently waiting for the Note II to hit the streets, the CM team has been working to bring the latest Android build to the original Note variants. CM10 has actually been available for the AT&T Note for a few days now, but the first nightly for the international variant just showed up.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

The Samsung Galaxy Note (and its unheard of size) has been a hot topic since its AT&T release this past week, and we have seen quite a few conflicting opinions on the practicality of the device over the last few days. Many say that the gigantic screen prevents users from carrying it around comfortably, while others claim that it doesn't feel much different than any other phone.

When I first opened up the Galaxy Note's box I was astonished by its size.
