Samsung might extend the S Pen support for more devices as well, the company suggested in a statement. The company confirmed in a statement to SamMobile that it plans to extend the S Pen experience across additional device categories, though it did not specify which other upcoming phones will get the support. For those unaware, S Pen has remained exclusive to the Galaxy Note when it comes to smartphones. However, the company recently expanded S Pen support for the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which is the first non-Note smartphone to support the accessory.

Do note that the Galaxy S21 Ultra does not have a slot to hold the S Pen like the Galaxy Note phones, nor does the stylus ship with the device. Those interested in using the S Pen with the Galaxy S21 Ultra will need to buy the accessory separately. A flip cover that has a slot to hold the S Pen will also need to be bought.

“We are committed to innovating new mobile experiences that flow seamlessly and continuously to make our consumers’ lives easier and better. We’ve made the bold decision to expand the S Pen experience to Galaxy S21 Ultra, and plan to expand the S Pen experience across additional device categories in the future,” Samsung’s statement read.

This is not the first time that Samsung has hinted at S Pen support coming to its other devices. Samsung’s president of mobile TM Roh said in a company blog post in December that some of the most well-loved features of the Galaxy Note experience will be brought to other devices. Even though Samsung did not confirm which device will get S Pen support next, Roh hinted it could be the company’s foldable devices.
In a Q&A session in August, Roh said, “The S Pen has always been a well-loved feature of the Galaxy Note and we are happy to hear that people want it so much, they even want it on the Fold.” He added that the company will certainly continue to listen to its customers’ feedback. Of course, we will have to wait for a confirmation to know more.
