  • Samsung’s S Pen Pro has passed the FCC.
  • The stylus will support the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and a host of other Samsung products.
  • It also supports aerial actions on multiple devices.

Previous rumors have indicated that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will debut with support for the S Pen, making it the company’s first foldable device to accommodate the stylus. Now a new FCC listing almost confirms this.

The S Pen Pro, which briefly appeared in January, has been spotted at the certification agency (h / tu / FragmentedChicken) with a list of its skills and supported devices. Unlike the Galaxy S21 Ultra stylus, this stylus features Bluetooth LE which powers support for aerial actions.
According to the S Pen Pro label, it also supports more than the Galaxy Z Fold 3. “Compatible with Galaxy smartphones, tablets and PCs that support the S Pen stylus,” he says. The stylus also supports Air Actions on Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, Galaxy Note 20 series, Note 10 Lite, Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S6 series running at least a 3.1 user interface.

The S Pen Pro does not support internal charging like the Galaxy Note series stylus. Instead, it looks like a USB-C port with a 0.5W load will be used. The size of its power supply remains uncertain, however, but keeping an eye on the power level of the stylus can be annoying for those who intend to use it often.

Samsung S Pen Pro: An optional accessory?

The list adds valuable context to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and S Pen Pro pairing, but it’s still unclear how Samsung will offer the two devices. The S Pen Pro label suggests that it won’t be in the Galaxy Z Fold 3 box, but could be provided as an accessory. Considering widespread support for the Pen across the Samsung lineup, it should also be available for purchase as a standalone product.

Given the timing of this list, the S Pen Pro is expected to debut at Samsung’s already packed Unpacked event next month. Expect to know more about Samsung’s plans then.
