Samsung can increase thickness of ultra-thin glass in its next foldable, in addition to using AES technology
It is not today that rumors about the end of the line Galaxy Note circulate – but a common question is where the S Pen, which has gained so many improvements over the years. Now, there seems to be new evidence of the component’s arrival at Galaxy Z Fold 3, future folding smartphone from the South Korean manufacturer.

According to a report by the UBI Research, Samsung could be planning to use AES (Active Electrostatic Solution) technology so that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 has support for the S Pen, despite having a foldable screen.
AES is able to deliver better overall performance, but it also implies a higher production cost – which should make the cell phone even more expensive.
Currently, the Galaxy Note line uses EMR (Electromagnetic Resonance) technology, but it does not work with flexible screens. Technical limitations should be the main factor so that the manufacturer has not yet implemented its stylus in the line of foldable smartphones.
Galaxy Z Fold 3 may have thicker UTG
Rumors indicate that Samsung is working on ultra-thin glass (UTG) that is capable of resisting the tip of the pen. The Galaxy Z Fold has a layer of UTG with a thickness of 30 micrometers, but apparently something twice as thick could already allow the use of the S Pen without major problems.
Still, it is too early to be sure about any of these rumors. In August, some rumors about the arrival of the S Pen to the Galaxy S line with the launch of the Galaxy S21 circulated in the media, but Samsung has yet to confirm any of the information. So what we have left is to wait for the scenes in the next chapters.
