Samsung released the Galaxy Z Fold 3 earlier this week, and one of the highlights is the S Pen support. This is the first foldable to come with such a feature, and Samsung has also released a new S Pen built specifically for foldable devices. Naturally, Samsung Galaxy Note users may be tempted to want to use their S Pen with the new Galaxy Z Fold3. However, that is a very bad idea. The company explains that using an older S Pen with the new foldable device could break the screen, and of course, this is why you should buy a new S Pen designed specifically for the Galaxy Fold 3. Just the screen. The main Z Fold3 is capable of the S Pen. Compatible with the S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro only. All other S Pen or stylus not designed for the Z Fold3 (including those from other manufacturers) may damage the screen.
In case you wonder why this happens, it is because Samsung has designed the new S Pen with a special tip to avoid any damage to the screen. S Pen for Z Fold3 comes in two options: S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro. Both feature a specially designed Pro Retractable Tip with Force Limit Technology to protect the main screen of the Z Fold3 so you have peace of mind while using the S Pen. The Galaxy Fold3 and the new S Pen are now available for pre-purchase.
