What is Stylus Pen?
So, what is a stylus pen or s-pen? It is a pressure-sensitive pen for a touchscreen display that can be used for a mirage of tasks that aren’t that easy with our hands. Its features and capabilities have improved over the years.
Apart from a bigger display, battery, and storage, the stylus pen is one of the top features to separate the Note series from other Samsung phones and if we are being honest, every other smartphone in general.
However, with the launch of the S21 Ultra with an s pen earlier in 2021, which also happens to be one of the Samsung phones that have a bigger display, I think the S series is catching up.
Though the stylus on the S21 ultra doesn’t have many features as those on the Note series, neither does it have its capabilities, but I think it is only a matter of time before it gets there if they continue with it.
Another thing is that the Galaxy Note phone’s stylus pen has a space created for it inside the smartphone. This makes it difficult to lose it, while in there, it also automatically charges and overall adds to the aesthetics of the design.
On the S21 ultra, however, you either find a way to keep it safe or buy a pouch that can house the pen for you. But it has its own advantages though, in that it is bigger which makes it more convenient to hold.
With the S22 Ultra launched with an integrated Stylus-Pen, and looks even like the Note series might have confirmed what numerous people have been thinking about the Note Series not making a comeback.
Which Samsung Device Comes with S Pen?
All their Note series phones you can get your hands on now, S21 Ultra, Tab S7, S22 Ultra, Z Fold 3 5G, and Fold 4.
Does Samsung S21 Have S Pen?
No, the Samsung Galaxy S21 did not come with a stylus pen. However, the more premium of the family; the S21 Ultra does have an S Pen just not an in-built one.
Does Samsung S20 Ultra Have S Pen?
No, the Galaxy S20 ultra does not have s pen. The regular S20, S20 FE, and the S20 plus also don’t have the S Pen.
What Can I Do with S Pen?
The Stylus pen can be used for many things. However, among the top things it is used for are Note-taking, Navigation across the device, remote control (for the camera, music, and other media and entertainment apps), and drawing/sketching.
Can I Use S Pen on Other Samsung Phones?
No, your galaxy phone must have s pen support for it to work. Even as that, there are different types of S Pen, and each of them mostly only works for the Samsung model that they were created for.
For example, the S21 Ultra s pen won’t work on Note 20 ultra, but the Note 10 s pen can work on some other galaxy note series phones. Similarly, the Fold Edition S-Pen won’t work on other devices.
As you must have heard, there is a shortage of chips around the world and that affects many if not all manufacturers in the computer and electronics space; Samsung included.
This was why there was no Note series in 2021 and one of the reasons many believed was the only reason that the S21 ultra comes with a stylus pen.
However, many also believe that Samsung is trying to stop manufacturing the Note series altogether and will be moving its best feature to the S series.
Well, we will all have to wait for the launch of the S22 family which is only some weeks away to confirm which of the above people are right. Well, here is an update. S22 Ultra was announced with an in-built S-Pen and even looks like a Note.
Either way, a stylus pen is a really great addition to the already great Samsung flagship phones and it is a hardware that I don’t want to see just fade away. This is where I will stop regarding Samsung phones with Stylus Pen but the list will be continuously updated as new devices are announced.
