Samsung S Pen Pro is a pencil-sized stylus for the S21 Ultra

After months of speculation and leaks, S Pen support on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is official. The Notes are no longer the only Samsung phones to have support for the company's styluses, and in fact, if you're looking to get one for the S21 Ultra, there will even be a choice between the regular S Pen and an S Pen Pro.

Samsung made the Galaxy S21 lineup official yesterday, including the new S21 Ultra with S Pen support and a less outrageous (but still prohibitively high) price tag.

Between losing the S Pen or carrying it in this terrible S21 Ultra case, the choice is clear

It was sort of already confirmed that the upcoming Galaxy S21 Ultra would support the S Pen, but we weren’t sure of the implementation. Given that the S21 Ultra will lack a Note-like slot to house the stylus, the solution wasn’t expected to be particularly elegant. Unfortunately, that exactly turns out to be the case.

Samsung reportedly abandoning the Galaxy Note line in favor of foldables

Samsung reportedly abandoning the Galaxy Note line in favor of foldables

Samsung made history back in 2011 when it unveiled the Galaxy Note — a huge (well, at the time) 5.3" phone with an S Pen stylus included. Since then, it's become synonymous with Samsung's top-of-the-line flagship experience. But next year Samsung is poised to set history in a different way.
