Samsung, the South Korean electronics giant, has already been busy with many launches in their wide range of products that they offer in 2021 and now, with the new generation smartphone and smartwatches, the company is set to launch the all new S Pen Pro with the Galaxy Z Fold 3. New FCC reports hints at Samsung introducing a bigger version of the previous S Pen with bluetooth connectivity and is also expected to work with the Note 20 series and S21 Ultra phones.
In terms of the specs, the S Pen will reportedly stack a 100 mAh battery and a USB Type-C charging port. Currently, the S Pen costs around $40 (Rs. 3,000) but the company is expected to increase the price of the bigger and better version of the Pen. We do not know the price of it currently. Customers will also have to spend extra cash to buy the new version of the S Pen, as it will not be included with the new generation foldable smartphone purchase.
Previously this year, the CEO of Samsung IT and Communications, said that there would be no launches in the Note series this year. This was due to the fact that there is a shortage of chips and it also clashes with their other important upcoming launches during the year. He acknowledged the importance of the S Pen and the Note series smartphones which their loyal customer base loves, and also said that they are focusing on the S Pen for now and will be back with a Note smartphone soon.
According to a label in the FCC filing, these are the smartphones that will be fully compatible with the S Pen Pro: Galaxy Note 10 Lite, Galaxy Note 20 duo, Galaxy Tab 7 series, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, Galaxy Tab 6 and the most awaited, Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G.
There has been no official communication on the launch of the S Pen Pro and while it would be sensible to launch it during the Galaxy Unpacked Event in August, as the product is new generation and sold separately, it might be launched individually later on during the course of the year.
