Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold3 will be the first in the series to support the company’s famous S-Pen. Up until now, however, it has been a mystery as to how Samsung had planned to integrate the S-Pen into the Fold3 experience. A fresh leak finally reveals that like the S21 Ultra, Samsung will be relying on a new specially designed case.

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold3 is one of the most eagerly awaited smartphones this year. It is the third-generation of Samsung’s cutting-edge foldable OLED display technology, but it will also be the first from the company to support S-Pen input. Given how fragile the first-generation Fold display was, the Z Fold3 looks like it will mark a dramatic step up in durability for foldable display technology.

The Galaxy Z Fold3 also has some big shoes to fill this year as well. Samsung advised several months ago that it would not be launching a new Galaxy Note model in a similar launch window as its next-generation foldables due to the global chip shortage. Instead, Samsung is counting on its Galaxy Note power user base to jump on board the Galaxy Z Fold3 instead. If the forced experiment proves to be a success, it could spell the end of the Galaxy Note series, particularly as Samsung has now also added S-Pen support to the Galaxy S series.

One lingering question, however, has been how Samsung plans to integrate the S-Pen into the Galaxy Z Fold3 experience. Now a fresh leak courtesy of 91mobiles reveals that Samsung has created a special case with a slot for the Z Fold3 S-Pen, much like it did for the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Overall, it seems like a reasonable solution, although it is clearly not as seamless as the in-body integration of the S-Pen in the Galaxy Note line. Like the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the S-Pen and case accessory remains optional, so you can continue using the Fold without the slightly added bulk if you choose.

Buy the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 from Amazon for US$1,700, a saving of US$300.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
