What can we expect from the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 in 2022? If it follows the pattern of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, it should come with support for Samsung’s S Pen stylus, but a new rumor claims that support will only go so far.
According to Naver (via FrontTron), none of the current prototypes for Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 include an integrated slot for the S Pen, making it unlikely that one will be included in the finished device. The design is expected to be finalised in March.
It’s not a total disaster – the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy S21 Ultra don’t include one, while the Galaxy Note series doesn’t either. It’s a critical element from the Samsung Note family that has yet to trickle down to any other phones.
The situation continues.
It’s possible that you’ll be able to buy a genuine Samsung cover for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 to keep the S Pen in, otherwise you’ll have to rely on your pocket or a third-party case when it’s not in use.
Alternatively, you may store it behind your ear until you need it again.
While extending S Pen support to the Ultra models in the S series and Z Fold series is great, it appears Samsung isn’t completely sold on the change – or maybe they don’t know if everyone who buys these phones wants an S Pen.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 hasn’t generated a lot of buzz yet, but there have been reports that some of the camera upgrades will be relatively modest, and that it may be available at a cheaper price than its predecessor.
If Samsung maintains to its 2021 plan in 2022, the foldable phone should arrive in August 2020.
Samsung must ensure that the Galaxy Note is properly replaced.
Samsung has confirmed that it’s canceling the Galaxy Note series in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and a microchip scarcity that has impacted practically every electronics firm on Earth.
There hasn’t been an official announcement, but Samsung didn’t release a successor to the Galaxy Note 20 from 2020.
With the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 4 on the horizon, Samsung may no longer require the Note series.
However, if these phones feature S Pen capabilities as advertised, it’s conceivable that Samsung doesn’t need the Note line. That assistance would be limited without an integrated S Pen slot.
Slots for the stylus in the actual phone are more convenient than buying a separate case for the task, which is necessary for both the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 3.
The integrated holder was one of the features that made the Samsung Note so popular.
When the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra debuts in 2021, it will be bigger and more Note-like than ever before. It may even adopt the name “Note.”
It doesn’t really compare to everything that the Galaxy Note has to offer without a suitable location to store the S Pen stylus, which is something we hope Samsung addresses in 2023 if not next year.
