It’s apparently the end of the road for the Galaxy Note series and to retain S Pen users, Samsung has expanded its stylus experience to the Galaxy S21 Ultra and has also revealed plans to bring support to more device categories in the future.
The report is based on a trademark application filed recently by Samsung for the ‘Z Flip’ moniker. Here is the description for the trademark: ‘smartphones, tablets, protective covers; electronic pen; capacitive stylus’.
What makes the application interesting is that a trademark that was filed for ‘ Samsung Z Flip ‘ in February 2020 does not mention an electronic pen and or capacitive stylus. This indicates that Samsung is considering bringing stylus support to its clamshell phones. Although trademarks are far from a guarantee that something is on the way, they are often the earliest hint about a company’s plan.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is rumored to have a sturdier Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) to withstand stylus pressure. The stylus itself has been made especially for bendable phones. If all goes well, Samsung may extend stylus support to the Z Flip 3 successor.
