Samsung Galaxy Note 21 is the latest victim of the global semiconductor shortage Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy Note 21 has been hitting headlines for all the wrong reasons over the last few months. A new development seemingly confirms that it will not be launched in 2021.

At the 52nd regular shareholders’ meeting in South Korea today, Samsung co-CEO DJ Koh talked about the imbalance between the demand and supply of semiconductors globally — becoming the largest consumer tech company to publicly talk about the shortage. Samsung, which is also a chipset manufacturer itself, expects the disparity to affect its business in the next quarter. 

“It is not that we do not release new products. The timing may vary, but next year we are preparing to continue to do so.”
