Samsung Writes a New Chapter in Smartphone Innovation: S-Pen Joins the Foldable Revolution

To simply pop a ‘pen’ out from your device and immediately start writing was a Samsung idea that came to life with the inclusion of the S Pen in the company’s Galaxy Note series 10 years ago. Since then, the S Pen has undergone multiple innovations to transform it from a mere stylus, into an independent device that can even work as a remote control camera trigger from up to 10m away from your device. It’s a landmark innovation that takes Samsung’s latest ground-breaking device’s abilities to even greater heights.

Samsung and Wacom have been working closely together for over 10 years on the S-Pen, always innovating, to deliver unique and differentiated experiences to Galaxy users. For Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, Samsung renewed the S-Pen technology to make it more optimised for enhanced performance such as less latency and super precision. It also comes with a finely tuned-up pen tip structure to deliver excellent drawing and writing experiences on the foldable screen surface. Anyone that is already impressed by their new Galaxy Z Fold3 5G can also take advantage of fully optimised S-Pen features on their foldable screen, which is a perfect fit for on-the-go multitaskers.

On the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G’s massive Main Screen, it’s easier than ever for you to jot down notes during a video call or check off a to-do list while reading emails, and Galaxy Z Fold3 users can also power their creativity and productivity with the S-Pen. This includes Air actions, where you can harness intuitive actions to switch between camera and shooting modes, zoom in or out of a shot and execute a variety of other convenient functions, all with customisable gestures.

For Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, the S Pen comes in two options: S- Pen Fold Edition and S-Pen Pro. They both feature a specially engineered retractable Pro tip with force limit technology to protect the device’s Main Screen for peace of mind while using the S-Pen. This is Samsung’s best S- Pen experience yet, with even lower latency, 2.8 ms, for true-to-life composition, ensuring that notetaking and sending messages is seamless and intuitive.

Clearly, the S-Pen has grown into an independent smart device of its own. On the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, its super-charged to help write a whole new chapter in smartphone innovation.

*S Pen sold separately. Only Z Fold3 Main Screen has S-Pen capability. Compatible only with the S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro. All other S Pens or stylus pens not designed for Z Fold3 (including those by other manufacturers) may damage the screen.
