Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 supports S Pen. But there is a catch

This week Samsung unveiled its new foldable smartphones, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3. The latter is the third generation of the smartphone that turns into a tablet when unfolded, and it brings good news.

It is the first Samsung smartphone to contain an under-display front camera, and also the first foldable to support the S Pen. But this compatibility with Samsung’s smart pen has a downside.

Old S Pen not working on Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3

If you’re willing to shell out something like € 1859 for the new Galaxy Z Fold 3 in Portugal, there’s something you need to consider. The old S Pens you have at home will not work with this model.

On the official Samsung website it is still not possible to find the new S Pen Pro and S Pen Fold Edition. But for an additional € 89 you can receive a flip case with S-Pen and a travel charger (25W).

Samsung One UI warns you if you use an unsupported S Pen

Either way, One UI will be smart enough to know that you are using an unsupported S Pen. And if that happens, it warns you and refuses to work with the product.

In the US, the S Pen Fold Edition is $ 49.99 and the S Pen Pro is priced at $ 99.99 (prices sold separately). But as mentioned above, it can be more profitable to buy the accessory in the package we mentioned and have access to a case.
