The flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra is the first in the series to receive support for the S Pen stylus, and now it looks like it will be followed by the Galaxy Z Flip folding smartphones. And this is another “bell”, hinting at the closure of the Galaxy Note series.
What does it mean?
Although there is no absolute proof that the new Galaxy Z Flip will receive a stylus in the kit, this is indicated by a trademark application recently filed by Samsung. The brand name is “Z Flip”, and the description states: “smartphones, tablets, protective cases; electronic pen; capacitive stylus”.
Interestingly, the trademark that was registered for the Samsung Z Flip in February 2020 does not mention an electronic pen and/or a capacitive stylus. And while trademarks are far from a guarantee that something is going on, they are often the first hint of a company’s plans.
Recall that this year is expected to release the “clamshell” Galaxy Z Flip 3, which is credited with a 6.7-inch main screen with an AMOLED matrix and a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a Snapdragon 888 processor, and a price tag less than its predecessor.
