When Samsung launched the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G last week, it packed it with a functionality that was exclusive to the Galaxy Note series so far. We are talking about the S Pen stylus support that has become an identity of the Galaxy Note lineup. Even though the support is not as feature-rich as the phablets, it opens the door for a potential further expansion in the future.
In a statement given to SamMobile, Samsung has confirmed its plans to bring S Pen stylus support to more Galaxy smartphones in the future. It said that the team is consistently looking for ways to improve user experience and deliver new ways of doing things to its users. This is the reason it has started to expand S Pen beyond the Galaxy Note series.
Here is the complete statement,
"We are committed to innovating new mobile experiences that flow seamlessly and continuously to make our consumers’ lives easier and better. We’ve made the bold decision to expand the S Pen experience to Galaxy S21 Ultra, and plan to expand the S Pen experience across additional device categories in the future. We remain committed to providing the best mobile experience to our consumers and will continue to actively listen and consider consumer feedback in our product innovations."
The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is one of the three smartphones unveiled, the other two being the Galaxy S21 5G and Galaxy S21 Plus 5G. It is the only phone in the lineup that supports S Pen but not in the same capacity as the Galaxy Note 20 series. It does not have a carrying slot either but users can choose to buy a phone case that allows carrying the stylus.
