There are issues with the device’s supply and the lack of a definitive stylus-toting flagship
Into the shadow of the iPhone 13, and an aggressive new “Forever Upgrade” Plan to Sell Them, T-Mobile executives are complaining about Samsung phones, fierce wireless reports. In particular, their lack.
“Samsung is actually eight-ball behind other OEMs on global supply chain issues,” said Peter Oswaldick, T-Mobile’s chief financial officer and executive vice president. At a BofA Securities Investor Event on Tuesday. The problem appears to be that most of T-Mobile’s customers are “very significant Samsung lovers,” according to Oswaldik, and that Samsung is “discontinuing” the Galaxy Note — which “customers just love” — and S- A small supply of series phones has impacted the carrier.
Despite what Oswaldik said, Samsung has yet to officially discontinue the Note, having so far abandoned the 2021 version in favor of adding S Pen support to the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 3.

Samsung was reportedly considering stopping production of the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition (FE) in June, and it was also rumored that running into chip issues With your low budget A-series phone. In general, even in a normal year, it is difficult to release multiple flagship phones.
T-Mobile’s comments are a testament to Samsung’s reach, though, and taking Oswaldick at face value, it probably also confirms that the Note should stick around.
