Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will come with a more advanced stylus dubbed, the S Pen Pro if rumors making the rounds online are anything to go by. The South Korean tech behemoth could be taking the wraps off its much-awaited foldable phone next month. The device could make an appearance at the Samsung Unpacked event, which kicks off on August 11.
While the Galaxy Z Fold 3 has made multiple appearances on the web in the form of some compelling leaks. However, details about the phone’s S Pen compatibility are still scarce. Samsung has already confirmed that it’s next foldable will feature an S Pen. Earlier this year, the company said that the S Pen Pro will launch alongside the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Regrettably, the premium phone didn’t come with the much-awaited stylus.
S Pen Pro Details Leaked
The popular smartphone maker has kept details about the S Pen Pro under wraps. More shreds of information about the stylus surfaced earlier in July when some reports linked it to the Galaxy Z Fold 3. On July 27, noted tipster Chun (@chunvn8888) took to the microblogging website to reveal some important information. Moreover, the leaker has revealed a slew of purported specifications of the Samsung S Pen Pro.
Interestingly, the aforesaid details coincide with previous official information and other leaks from highly reliable sources. Samsung launched the original S Pen with the S21 Ultra without Bluetooth functionality. However, the more robust S Pen Pro will feature Bluetooth LE connectivity. Like the Galaxy Note 20 S Pen, the Bluetooth functionality would support a myriad of other features. In addition to basic features like tapping, drawing on the screen, the stylus will be able to carry out tasks such as taking photos and controlling media, according to Tom’sGuide.
S Pen Pro:
0.7 mm tip
4096 pressure points
Can be used with Z Fold3 without damaging the screen
Charges via USB C
Attaches magnetically with a few cases at the back of phones
Price around 70 bucks in the UK? https://t.co/qed83EZ936 pic.twitter.com/IKLzXqA0KZ

Chun suggests that the S Pen Pro will retain the 4,096 pressure points and 0.7mm tip of the S21 Ultra’s S Pen stylus. Aside from that, it can be used on the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s foldable screen. Users will be able to manually charge it via USB-C and even attach it magnetically at the back of some phone cases. Samsung is also tipped to be working on an S Pen Fold Edition stylus. However, it is currently unclear what the notable differences will be between the S Pen Pro and the S Pen Fold Edition.
Price, Availability & Other Details
According to Chun’s tweet, Samsung S Pen Pro will set you back £70 (about $97) in the UK. It is still unclear how much the company will sell its S Pen Pro stylus for when the Galaxy Z Fold 3 hits the store shelves. Alternatively, the company could include the S Pen Pro alongside its upcoming foldable device. More details about the foldable-ready stylus will be revealed during the upcoming Unpacked event. The event’s invitation hints at the Galaxy Z Flip 3, and the S Pen Pro announcement.
