When it comes to Samsung’s S Pen and Galaxy Z Fold line, it’s a perfect fit. A tablet-like display makes it easy to scribble on large ideas or annotate long documents.
Samsung definitely agrees, as seen by the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s S-Pen compatibility from last year. However, there are two major drawbacks: the S-Pen is an optional device, and there is no place to dock it when it is not in use. The only options are to carry it about loose and run the danger of losing it, or to purchase a cumbersome and unsightly case to store it in.
The inclusion of an S-Pen slot in the Galaxy Z Fold 4 has long been considered a must-have feature by many. If Ice Universe is true, it seems that their desires will not be granted.
As the tipper predicted, “Galaxy Z Fold4 will not feature a built-in S Pen.” In terms of size and thickness, “Fold4” will be reduced. This is right, and it’s a good point. Bricks don’t appeal to anybody.
While it’s not clear why Samsung chose not to include a S Pen dock, which would have made the device even more bulky, it seems that the firm decided to focus on making the foldable even smaller.
It’s one of the most common gripes regarding the Galaxy Z Fold 3 Most folks we give this foldable to remark it’s too big and bulky to use on a daily basis.
In terms of a business standpoint, Samsung’s estimate may be right. S Pen compatibility may not be as important to Samsung’s prospective customers as mobility. If most people don’t care either way about the S Pen, then adding more weight to a gadget in order to please a minority is a bad idea.
With the S Pen optional, there are additional advantages. Including a foldable phone in every package, even if it isn’t requested, raises the price per unit, which is clearly what Samsung is trying to do.
The cameras on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 are expected to be on par with those on the Galaxy S22 series. The Galaxy S22 Ultra, on the other hand, seems to be the only Samsung phone to include a built-in S Pen holster for the time being.
