who expected him S Pen Slot on board the new leaflet Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 you will be disappointed: unfortunately, even the new version of Samsung’s fold-out won’t have enough space to accommodate the stylus. The news comes from a very recent tweet from Ice Universe, a well-known tech expert, from which we learned that the Galaxy Z Fold4 will be “a little smaller and thinner“, although it is unclear how much the dimensions have changed from the previous model.
Ice Universe’s claim is also supported by other sources, who note that the change will likely not be made to keep Size foldable smartphone as small as possible. On the other hand, not even on the recent Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 launched last year was the stylus slot present, while on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, the true heir of the series of extinct notes. Therefore, the hypothesis was raised that the new Galaxy Fold could bring the long-awaited novelty but it will not be so: no stylus hidden in the body of the Galaxy Z Fold4, whose design resembles that of two phones stacked on top of each other. Once closed, it’s really impossible to imagine enough space to put the S Pen, unless Samsung is able to reduce, with the power of design and technology, the size of the other components. But, according to the leakers, he has no intention.

There drums on board the new Galaxy Z Fold4 may be similar to the predecessor, or 4,400mAh to which faster charging can be added. Finally, a curiosity: Samsung confirmed in March that it has started the removal of the “Z“from the series”Z galaxy“of the upcoming foldable devices.
