Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 to skip S Pen slot

20 November 2021
That's hardly a surprise since its predecessor doesn't have one either.

Sort by:

Bigger main screen + bigger inside screen + better camera + pen keeper.

Screen sizes on the Fold 3 are fine. If you try to do it the other way, when closed, the phone will so be too wide to hold on the hand. It will NOT be the same as a regular phone. If you're going to do that, you have to reduce the other dimension, which eventually makes the screen smaller, defeating the purpose altogether.

Better Camera, better battery capacity, bigger display on the main screen it's still too narrow... and then the S Pen! If you Samsung won't bother then I will skip this too... I have the Z Fold 2 I can wait.

The battery life is already suboptimal.
I would prefer any spare space to be put towards bigger battery capacity over a spen slot.
Happy to have the spen on a case instead

I don't mind the s-pen fold editor feel really good in the hand. Give a good case to store it. I need to be able to write on the outer screen..top of the line camera.

Missed opportunity by Samsung, this would made the Fold a truly Fold Note . Selling a note case with a huge stylus isn't practical and samsung should rethink this case because its awkward and non functional (poor quality overall ). I hope Samsung relaunches the Note series because this isn't going to make it for me. If rumors are true the S22 ultra will be the new note device and will cause a lot of harm to the fold 4 device. Samsung drop the Fold and stick to the flip ( it makes more sense ).

Fold and flip are just in the beginning of the race they will be cheaper and 99% of Samsung's sells are from midrange and entry level phones it's better for them to have an special offer at those eras

Your problem is just because Samsung released Z flip you think it's alien technology and you can never get down of the Samsung Savior horse

Technologist, 20 Nov 2021That's not understandable because Fold smartphones are... moreBut the Z Fold3 (and also the S21 Ultra) S Pen is a completely different type, unlike the Galaxy Note series S Pen. It's very unlikely that Samsung will revert back to the previous slim S Pen design from the Note.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 ( or anyone else) without slot for the S pen is worth "0" to me.
That one I never going to buy.
But, with slot for S pen I am going to by for sure.

I own the Z Fold and I have to say...it's a solid phone. It isn't flimsy, actually it's quite solid. I am loving this phone.

Scram, 21 Nov 2021Crap argument. You need a thinking cap. Your default thi... moreAre you serious? You think people are going to abandon Samsung for a foldable from a brand that they've never heard of ??? You think Samsung cares what TCL prices their foldable???

And the point is that Samsung would only release a perfect Fold once it can reduce the price enough despite giving all flagship features, it's common sense that they won't release a perfect Fold now since they can't decrease the price yet, even if there is no competitor, price too high would mean nobody buy it regardless if there are other Fold options. So the only time Samsung would release a perfect Fold is once they reduce the price enough, hence by then the price difference against it's competitors won't be high enough and people will just pay a bit more for a perfect Fold.

Please stop embarrassing yourself.

You want the latest and greatest when you can't afford it. Live within your means and wait for the technology to trickle down to the affordability range of the cash-strapped masses.

Samsung isn't a name in the flagship era? Did your brain break?
