As per a report by ETNews, we might see the Galaxy Z Fold 3 with the S Pen support.

To recall, the South Korean major recently launched the Galaxy S21 Ultra with S Pen support, making the functionality no longer exclusive to the Note devices.
It is revealed that Samsung has finally come up with a way of incorporating the S Pen in its foldable smartphone, after surpassing various issues. Issues such as making the digitiser (which recognises the S Pen movement) open to the folding mechanism, and the stylus’ impact on the foldable screen tolerable for the display, seems to have been taken care of.
There are chances that the Samsung foldable phone might come with UTG (Ultra-Thin Glass) screen that has been made to support the S Pen. The UTG display has also been seen in the predecessor model.
With this, the successor to the Galaxy Z Fold 2, is expected to go into mass production in May and possibly launch in the second half of this year.
If this becomes a reality, a foldable smartphone with a stylus will also be a first in the industry and is expected to attract many eyeballs.
Does it mean the end of the Galaxy Note lineup?
The news of the end of the Galaxy Note iteration has been afloat in the air for some time now. With Samsung extending the support to the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the news seems to become close to reality.
And with more information on more Samsung phones getting the feature, there are high chances the company might stop making Galaxy Note phones altogether and leave them as ‘the one in our memories.’
