Samsung simply revealed the brand new Galaxy S21 Ultra could be its first Galaxy S telephone to assist the S Pen stylus, however the firm is already saying that S Pen assist will come to different units sooner or later, in keeping with an announcement first given to SamMobile on Thursday.
“We’re dedicated to innovating new cellular experiences that circulate seamlessly and constantly to make our shoppers’ lives simpler and higher,” Samsung president of cellular TM Roh says within the assertion, which the corporate shared with The Verge. “We’ve made the daring choice to increase the S Pen expertise to Galaxy S21 Extremely, and plan to increase the S Pen expertise throughout further system classes sooner or later.”
“Further system classes” is imprecise by itself. However provided that S Pen is already appropriate with a few of Samsung’s smartphones and its Tab tablets, the subsequent logical system class that would use the S Pen, to me, could be Samsung’s foldables.
This isn’t Samsung’s first suggestion that S Pen assist will come to different units. Again in December, Roh said that the company has been “listening to folks’s favourite features of the Galaxy Be aware expertise and are excited so as to add a few of its most well-loved options to different units in our lineup,” although didn’t specify additional.
And Roh has even hinted towards the S Pen coming to foldables. In a Q&A throughout Samsung’s Galaxy Be aware 20 and Galaxy Z Fold 2 presentation from August, Roh left the door huge open to the concept the S Pen would make its option to foldables sooner or later.
“The S Pen has all the time been a well-loved function of the Galaxy Be aware. And we’re completely happy to listen to that folks need it a lot, they even need it on the Fold,” Roh stated. (You’ll be able to hear his assertion in context here.) Later, after reiterating the options of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, he added, “and we will definitely to proceed to hearken to our clients’ suggestions. So please keep tuned for what the long run will maintain.”
