The biggest change as compared to its predecessors is the S Pen support. The smartphone lets you choose between the S Pen Pen and the new S Pen Fold Edition, an exclusive accessory designed for the needs of the Galaxy Z Fold3. It is relatively smaller than S Pen Pro and misses out on Bluetooth though it still performs Air commands. Also, it does not have a slot for the S Pen and you need to buy a special case just like the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
