Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is the first Galaxy S series handset to offer stylus support. This phone does not come with a stylus slot, but an S Pen can be bought separately for use on the display. Alongside the new phones, Samsung also introduced the S Pen Pro – a pencil-sized larger model of the S Pen that is more comfortable to use and hold. This works with Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, but because it is larger than the S Pen, storing it within the new case won’t be possible.
The pricing and availability details of the S Pen Pro haven’t been announced and it is expected to be made available later this year. Samsung has not offered details on the exact size of S Pen Pro, but it is much larger than the new S Pen introduced alongside the Galaxy S21 Ultra. While this brings a lot of comfort while using than the smaller S Pen, it also means that it can’t be inserted in the case, and storing it could be a problem.
S Pen Pro supports Bluetooth which means you can use air actions, use it as a camera shutter, or to change the music. S Pen Pro may not only support the latest Galaxy S21 Ultra₹ 105,999, but also other S Pen-capable devices that run on One UI 3.1. This means it will work on the Galaxy Note 10₹ 73,600 series, Galaxy Note 20₹ 77,999 series, Galaxy Tab S6₹ 63,999, and Galaxy Tab S7 models.
The normal S Pen is priced at $40 (roughly Rs. 2,900) as a separate accessory, and with the case for the Galaxy S21 Ultra is priced at $90 (roughly Rs. 6,500). S Pen Pro should likely be priced more than that. Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is the first non-Note Samsung device to support the S Pen. The company has reportedly confirmed that more Galaxy models in the future will come with S Pen support.
