While these models, or perhaps some other
Samsung Galaxy phones, will feature support for the S Pen, they will not include housing for the accessory
according to All About Samsung’s Max Jambor. And here is the worst part-the S Pen will not come in the box with the new devices that will support it. That means that the cost of the S Pen will be coming out of the consumer’s pocket. And without housing for the S Pen, there is a good chance that the device will get lost; even with that dedicated slot on the Galaxy Note for the S Pen, we know of several people who misplaced it.
While we won’t know what the price of the S Pen will be for those Galaxy models that will support it, we can tell you that the retail price of a replacement unit for this year’s Galaxy Note 20 line is $39.99. With the S Pen, users will be able draw, doodle, and mark up the screen. The S Pen can also be used as a remote control for streaming media, and to snap a photo using the phone’s camera. There are many other useful things that the S Pen is capable of doing; but since the accessory will apparently not be found in the box, it will be up to you to decide whether having an S Pen is worth the extra expense.
