    Is there any compelling reason to move to the S21 Ultra?

    875 looks to be just marginally faster than the 865+. Perhaps more power efficient?

    QHD and 120hz. This sounds good but it appears to be a toss-up whether you can see the difference to FHD at a normal reading distance.

    Haven't seen much about the camera?

    5,000mh battery sounds better.

    Honestly it feels like Samsung is modeling their devices to be only marginally better than the previous year. It feels more like incentive to skip years. So if you had the S10 or Note10 the 21 would be for you. If you have S20 or N20 you'll get more for you money waiting until the 22/30 or whatever they're going to call it. This is just my opinion but that's how it feels.

    On the flip side for those who can't or don't want to wait getting almost or half your money in credit towards the next new device, if you're willing to trade in, isn't a bad incentive either. It works out to be more of a lease program that way.

    Having the N20 Ultra Snapdragon I'm not compelled for the s21 at all.

    Let's hope they launch a N21

    I haven't been in the Samsung universe long but from what I have been able to gather, the Galaxy S line is the flagship personal phone line, while the Galaxy Note line is the flagship (almost) business phone. I say almost because it is still a personal phone to many but with a few extras that could be used for business. It historically seems to have been a step above the S line so yeah it has slightly better specs and at a slightly higher price. In one article I read or review that I watched I remember the mention of some controversy over next years device. It was said that the duel flagship phones was likely to come to an end. The way they pictured it was that the next gen would likely be an S line with an S-pen or S-pen compatible. Then the Note line would be no more. I haven't looked much at the S21/30 so I don't know how true this is but I have heard mention around the Note 20 that it is the last "Note" device.

    Perhaps someone knows more than I about this and can speak more directly to these claims...?

    This article at least supports the addition of S-Pen support on the new device. It also mentions that "they don't feel the Note line is dead" but there's nothing confirming or denying this as the Note line is usually a mid to late year release.

    I won't give up the stylus. If the Note 20 was the last it will be a long time until I upgrade. I'll save a lot of money too.

    I like to game so the new 888 SD and bigger battery would be ace BUT I don't think I can give up the SPen feature......too spoiled.

    I went to the Note for all it's features years ago. I won't move to anything else unless it's another Note. I don't believe they will drop the line myself. I've heard that rumor since my first Note years ago.

    Note 20 Ultra may have a few lesser tweaks but a huge nope here...

    In the article I tagged in my comment it sounds like they are going to make it S-Pen compatible just without the space eating pocket in the device. So does that mean you won't go without the built in holder or only if it isn't compatible? I would also imagine if they make it compatible they would make it "backwards" compatible so maybe former Note users wouldn't have to buy a new S-Pen??? Or they may go for the money grab and make it only compatible with the "new" S-Pen... Whatever that will be.

    It sounds like it would have an s-pen comparable to the Note9 - no Bluetooth and all of the actions supported by it.
    IMO, if you can't holster the s-pen, it's useless. I wouldn't buy a case just to keep using the s-pen. I kept my Note10+ because I didn't think the Note20 Ultra was worth the money at the time. If there's no Note21, I may have to learn to live without the s-pen.
    If there is no Note21, I would assume the Note line is dead as well they can't make a separate S model with an integrated s-pen, as the resources would be too much.

    10 x optical zoom is a good reason.

    That depends on how much you value the intergrated Spen vs 10x optical zoom. The Note isn't dead yet.

    Yeah, I love the S-Pen and use it every day but I also love taking pictures with the zoom camera. But why not have both phones
