Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3: S Pen support and features confirmed
Samsung is not expected to reveal the Galaxy Z Fold 3 until August, but more features about the device have turned up online. According to FCC documentation, Samsung's next premier foldable will support the S Pen Pro, a stylus that the company announced in January. Unsurprisingly, Samsung did not include the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in the S Pen Pro's supported devices at the time.
However, one document explicitly states that the S Pen Pro supports the Galaxy Z Fold 3, or Galaxy Z Fold3 5G as Samsung will market it. Additionally, you will be able to use the S Pen Pro on the Galaxy S21 Ultra, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Note 10 Lite, Galaxy Tab S6, Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7 Plus.
The label also mentions that the S Pen Pro supports Samsung's Air Actions, a marketing name for gestures that you can use to control your smartphone. The S Pen Pro uses Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) to perform Air Actions, which includes controlling music playback or using the stylus as a remote camera shutter.
We suspect that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will support more than just one S Pen, though. Last month, Evan Blass leaked a render containing an S Pen with 'Fold Edition' written on it. Hence, it seems likely that the S Pen Pro will be a premium alternative to what Samsung will probably call the Galaxy Z Fold 3 S Pen.
