The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 could support the S Pen, which would be bad news for the Note lineup

We’ve heard reports that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will help the S Pen, but there’s not much we don’t know about the Galaxy Z Flip 3.

Samsung has filed an application with the EU Property Office that hints at S pen compatibility, according to the Dutch website LetsGoDigital. The trademark is for a particular “Z Flip” model, which was previously reported to be in the works for Samsung, but the synopsis also mentions “electronic pens” and “capacitive styluses for touch screen devices.”

Now it’s possible that Samsung simply added a standard definition for the upcoming phone and has no plans to add S Pen support to the Z Flip 3. LetsGoDigital, on the other hand, looked at the trademark filing for last year’s Z Flip model and found no mention of a stylus or electronic pen.


That’s a big hint that something’s up, and it’s not good news for the Galaxy Note collection. The S Pen was about all that remained as the Galaxy S range grew in size and claimed more and more Note-like features.

Regardless of public opinion, Samsung’s decision to include S Pen support in the Galaxy Z Fold 3 makes sense, given that the smartphone would open up to a much larger footprint, necessitating the use of a S Pen. However, with S Pen support on the Galaxy S21 Ultra and possibly the Galaxy Z Flip 3, it seems unlikely that another Note series lineup will be released anytime soon.

However, we haven’t heard anything official about the Z Flip 3 having S Pen help, so we shouldn’t get our hopes up just yet. That isn’t the only explanation, though. The trademark is valid for ten years, and since the Z Flip computer has yet to be officially announced, Samsung may be saving it for a later edition.

Apart from the fact that it will most likely launch alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 3 at the start of Q4, we don’t know anything else about the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
