Old S Pen can not be used with Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3

A few days ago, Samsung unveiled the new Galaxy Z Fold 3, which is the South Korean manufacturer’s first foldable smartphone with stylus support. However, the pen does not come with the gadget – you need to buy it separately. But importantly, not all styluses actually support the Z Fold 3.

If you would like to add an electronic pen to your smartphone, keep in mind that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is only compatible with the new S Pen Pro or S Pen Fold Edition models. If you try to work with the old S Pen, the system will notify that it does not fit and will refuse to work with the stylus.

What’s more, older S Pens are dangerous to cover the flexible display of a smartphone. Even though Samsung has started using a new protective material that is 80% stronger, a regular stylus can still scratch it, and excessive pressure can cause serious damage.

At the same time, newer versions of the S Pen have a softer tip that is safe to cover. Plus, it is retractable, so if you try to push harder, the tip will simply hide into the body.

By the way, the S Pen Fold Edition is $ 50 and the S Pen Pro is $ 100. You can also buy a stylus as part of a kit, which includes a case and a charger – it is not in the smartphone’s box either.
