The South Korean tech giant has been focussing its attention on its foldable lineup and aims to bring some Note features to future Galaxy Z foldable phones.

In a new post on the official Samsung Newsroom website, Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics said that the company will launch the first-ever S Pen designed specifically for foldable phones. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 with S Pen support will debut on August 11th. We have known about the S Pen support for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 for a while now and 91mobiles exclusive shared some case renders this week that revealed an S Pen holder.

“The upcoming Galaxy Z Fold combines the very best that smartphones and tablets offer and delivers completely new ways of working, connecting and creating, while the upcoming Z Flip exhibits an even more refined style, armed with more durable, stronger materials,” Roh said.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to come with a similar design language as its predecessor. The phone will get an under-display camera in the interior display and a punch-hole camera on the cover display. It will also get a triple camera system on the back. It’s likely that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will not have an S Pen holder in order to keep the phone’s form factor slim. This also suggests that we are looking at a simple stylus without Bluetooth and a battery.
