  • Samsung president of mobile TM Roh said S Pen support is coming to devices.
  • “We… plan to expand the S Pen experience across additional device categories in the future,â€� he said.

Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra won’t be the last new device to support the company’s S Pen stylus. In a statement to The Verge, Samsung mobile chief TM Roh confirmed the company is working on supporting additional devices in the future.

“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,� Roh told the website.

The executive didn’t go on to elaborate the exact “device categories� he had in mind, but given that you can already use the S Pen in conjunction with some of the company’s phones and tablets, stylus support for its foldables seems like a natural fit. And as The Verge points out, Roh had already hinted at that possibility in the past. “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 said during a Q&A last year dedicated to the Note 20 and Galaxy Z Fold 2.
