Samsung had teased the S Pen Pro stylus for the first time during the announcement of the Galaxy S21 Ultra. The company had mentioned that it will launch the pro-grade stylus sometime later this year. A few days ago, it was revealed that the S Pen Pro would also work with the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Now, a video of the upcoming stylus has leaked ahead of the official launch.
The S Pen Pro’s video was published on Twitter on Saturday, revealing its design. From the looks of it, the upcoming stylus will have a button on the front along with a white status LED. There appears to be another switch towards the end of the S Pen Pro, but we are not sure what it does. It was leaked earlier that the S Pen Pro features Bluetooth LE (for Air Actions) and that it can be charged using a USB Type-C port, but the video doesn’t show any port, which may be hidden.
The stylus may be available in only one color: black. It will be compatible with the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Samsung may have used a special material to make the S Pen Pro’s nib so that it doesn’t damage the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s relatively smoother foldable screen. Samsung has revealed that it has also developed a special S Pen (called S Pen Fold Edition) for the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
More information about the S Pen Pro and the S Pen Fold Edition will be unveiled during Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked 2021 event on August 11.
