Samsung Electronics is expected to introduce the S Pen stylus with its Galaxy S 2021 model. Previously, it had been mainly supplied with its Galaxy Note. It is expected to launch next year as part of its strategy to improve the user experience.
Given Galaxy S21 smartphones will reportedly not have a slot to keep the stylus in, it is speculated that Samsung will release a smartphone case that can store it.
Roh Tae-moon, Samsung Electronics’ mobile business chief, has said the company will try to give consumers the experience it has provided with the Galaxy Note smartphones.
“We’ve also been paying attention to people’s favorite aspects of the Galaxy Note experience and are excited to add some of its most popular features to other devices in our lineup,” Roh said.
The S Pen has been one of the two strong points of the Galaxy Note, along with its big screen, since the first Galaxy Note was released in 2011. Specifically, the S Pen has played a key role in attracting users, enabling them to note-take, control apps using stylus gestures and do other convenient work.
Industry officials predict Samsung’s new premium smartphone will arrive in January which is about a month earlier than the launch date of previous Galaxy S phones. The company is expected to unveil it on Jan. 14 and begin selling it from Jan. 29.
Due to the sanctions, Huawei’s global smartphone market share in October was 11 percent, 10 percentage points down from April. According to the data collected by market researcher Counterpoint Research, Samsung retained top spot with a 21 percent share.
