Samsung has confirmed that its S Pen stylus will make its way to other devices in the future.
This comes after the company officially launched the S21 series with the Ultra variant compatible with the S Pen.
A statement from Samsung on S Pen compatibility is available below:
We are committed to innovating new mobile experiences that flow seamlessly and continuously to make our consumers’ lives easier and better. We’ve made the bold decision to expand the S Pen experience to the Galaxy S21 Ultra, and we plan to expand the S Pen experience to other categories of devices in the future. Samsung told the Netherlands-based publication Sammobile.
Previous rumors indicate that Samsung will drop the Note line in 2021 and start selling the S Pen with the Z Fold 3 folding device.
This rumor is supported by Samsung’s moving head DJ Koh who told the world to “watch out for what the future holds” in regards to hearing that people want the S Pen with the Fold.
Previous rumors indicate that Samsung did not add the S Pen with the Z Fold 2 as it was causing problems with the device’s screen digitizers. Digitizers are the technology under the screen of a smartphone that recognizes input from a pencil, and without one, Samsung’s S Pen won’t work.
Samsung’s Z Fold 3 is not rumored to launch until the second half of the year. To learn more about the S21 Ultra, check out our smartphone-centric ad post.
