Samsung thinks about giving the Galaxy Note refresh a miss this year as semiconductor supplies run dry


But also, what would they do?

Simple really - bring back the removable battery, last seen in my venerable Note 4, and a headphone socket, last seen in my current Note 9.

Although that might require a radical shift by Samsung in the direction of giving the customer what they actually want.

Actually, there are reports that the European Commission is contemplating a plan to force manufacturers of electronic goods to make their batteries replaceable, including phones, tablets and wireless headphones, largely on environmental concerns. Not holding my breath on that one emerging into the light though.
