The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will feature S Pen support, South Korean media reported Monday. This will make it only the second smartphone to offer this capability outside of Samsung’s Galaxy Note series of phones. The first one being the Galaxy S21 Ultra released less than a month ago, following Samsung’s official confirmation last year that it would be bringing S Pen support to devices outside the Galaxy Note lineup.
UTG is expected to be central to the S Pen support on the Galaxy Z Fold 3, as per the same source. The actual name of the device is still tentative.
What does this mean for the Galaxy Note line?
The future of the Galaxy Note series has been up in the air for a while now. Since its signature feature is now being loaned out to more devices (Galaxy Tab S, anyone?), it’s not unreasonable to assume the lineup is on borrowed time. Even though the Galaxy S21 Ultra still doesn’t offer a perfect alternative for the stylus. Well, for the stylus in its Galaxy Note 20 implementation, that is.
This is a developing story…
