Samsung will shrink screen size in Galaxy Z Fold 3 to make room for S-Pen
Reports have hinted towards the Galaxy Z Fold 3 having a price tag that is similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 2. This means that it should cost around ₹1,49,999 in India.
Samsung is months away from launching its next-generation Galaxy Z Fold 3 smartphone. Yet reports have detailed the specifications and the price that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 successor is tipped to come with. Now, a new report talks about a critical feature that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will sport: S-Pen support.
Display Supply Chain Consultants and DisplaySearch's Ross Young says that the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 will feature support for Samsung's S-Pen stylus. However, the way this support is included will be different from the one that is expected to be available with the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
As per the reports, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will feature support for S-Pen stylus but it won't have any extra space, like the one that is available in the company's Galaxy Note series. However, in case of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Samsung is making space for the stylus.
