Galaxy Z Fold 5 will fail to deliver S Pen storage again

The arrival of S Pen support on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 was part of what sealed the death of the Galaxy Note, but we’re still waiting for the ability to house a stylus inside Samsung’s foldable flagship. Apparently, those hoping for an S Pen silo to arrive in the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will still have to wait.

Since Samsung engineered a way to add S Pen support to foldables, the company has reportedly been working on a way to store the stylus in the phone as well. It was tried for the Fold 3, rumor for the Galaxy Z Fold 4and another report seemed confident that it would finally arrive on the Galaxy Z Fold 5 this year.

But now, ETNews reports that Samsung will not include an “integrated” S Pen on the Galaxy Z Fold 5.

Samsung reportedly removed the feature recently, seemingly unable to compromise on the thickness of the foldable and the size of the S Pen itself. The change would also have increased the cost of the Fold 5, the report says.

The company doesn’t appear to be abandoning this feature entirely, with development underway on a method to make the S Pen thinner without ruining the “writing feel”. In the meantime, Samsung’s next foldable will likely rely on cases again to store a stylus. The company’s first attempt on the Fold 3 was a wreckbut one the new design on Fold 4 was noticeably better.
