It’s apparently the end of the road for the Galaxy Note series and to retain S Pen users, Samsung has expanded stylus experience to the Galaxy S21 Ultra and has also revealed plans to bring support to more device categories in the future. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is highly likely to sport S Pen functionality and although there is no evidence so far that the Z Flip 3 will also work with a digital pen, a new report from Let’s Go Digital implies we shouldn’t rule out the possibility.
The report is based on a trademark application filed recently by Samsung for the ‘Z Flip’ moniker. Here is the description for the trademark: ‘smartphones, tablets, protective covers; electronic pen; capacitive stylus’.
What makes the application interesting is that a trademark that was filed for ‘ Samsung Z Flip ‘ in February 2020 does not mention an electronic pen and or capacitive stylus. This indicates that Samsung is considering bringing stylus support to its clamshell phones. Although trademarks are far from a guarantee that something is on the way, they are often the earliest hint about a company’s plan.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is rumored to have a sturdier Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) to withstand stylus pressure. The stylus itself has been made especially for bendable phones. If all goes well, Samsung may extend stylus support to the Z Flip 3 successor.
