South Korean media outlets, citing knowledgeable informants familiar with Samsung’s plans, report that the company has made the decision to equip its flagship line of Samsung Galaxy S smartphones with a stylus for the first time next year, and exactly on the Galaxy S21 Ultra model.
Previously, the S Pen was used only in the Galaxy Note line, but this summer there were first rumors that the South Korean manufacturing giant plans to implement major changes in its smartphone division.
Recently it became known that Samsung changed its strategy and is now focused on developing smartphones with foldable screens. As a result, true flagship devices will come with foldable screens in the Galaxy Z line, while the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines will noticeably weaken in terms of features and performance. Against this background, the Samsung Galaxy S21 with a stylus will be very attractive even against the background of the following foldable Samsung models.
According to a Korean media report; the Galaxy S21 series will include the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra models. At the same time, only the bigger model – Galaxy S21 Ultra will be equipped with the S Pen stylus. Sources also add that the Galaxy S21 Ultra will arrive with an S Pen stylus to attract the attention of fans of the Galaxy Note line.
Qualcomm will unveil the next-generation Snapdragon 875 flagship mobile platform later this year. Samsung, Oppo and Xiaomi will be the first companies to launch smartphones based on the Snapdragon 875. Some models of the Galaxy S21 will get this chip.
