There is an S Pen on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, what for? | Droidcops
Surely you already know the news about the presence of the S Pen on the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G device, right? Yep, that’s true even though it’s said to be sold separately for now.
If you are familiar with the S Pen from the previous Galaxy Notes series, its use is also quite similar. However, there is some low latency support in certain applications, Samsung said at its launch.
So why does Samsung insist on providing the S Pen feature in the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G series? Will the presence of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G interfere with the superiority of the Galaxy Notes Series because of the S Pen? So what is the use of the S Pen on the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G?
S Pen Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is Bigger than Galaxy Note20
As we stated earlier, that the S Pen for the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is sold separately, it can be said to be exclusive. Judging from the design, the reason we can come up with is, the S Pen Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G has a larger display than the S Pen owned by the Galaxy Note20.
Even though the design is quite different, this particular model for the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G looks and feels more like a real pen. It comes with a matte look and comfortable shape, one button, and replaceable pen head.
This S Pen reminds testers of the Galaxy Tab S7+ stylus model from its design form.
Not only that, Samsung is also preparing a version of the S Pen Pro which comes with Bluetooth connectivity. But make no mistake, even if you have a Bluetooth-enabled S Pen from the Samsung Galaxy Note version, you still won’t be able to run the Air Actions feature on this Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G.
You could say it won’t work, maybe this answers the question of whether the S Pen Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G will replace the S Pen Stylus belonging to the Galaxy Notes Series.
As far as we can see, both have slightly different development systems, especially the modules embedded in the S21 Ultra 5G device. So you can’t just pair it with other S Pens.
Basically, the S Pen for the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G still supports the basic functions of the S Pen in general. There are rumors that Samsung will continue to develop its features to the point of being more sophisticated like those of the Note20 and Tab S7 series, but that’s on the Bluetooth version of the S Pen Pro launching later this year.
S Pen Functions on Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G
In the following, we will explain a little about the functions and uses of the S Pen for Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G users.

But you can still tap the icon or press the pen button to call the Air Command menu. You can add Shortcuts which you can definitely customize, and that can be either the S Pen feature or a shortcut to an app.
Advance Screen Shot, this feature is confirmed to be one of the main features of using the S Pen on all Samsung phones with the S Pen. Smart Select lets you take screenshots of different shapes, including extracting text, or embedding it on the screen.

6 Applications That Can Be Maximized With the S Pen

For example, you see something cool in a video, just press the Scree Write option you can immediately create a doodle to share with your friends, it’s that simple.
Screen translate is also an interesting option for us and very useful of course. Even though it doesn’t translate the entire sentence, users will be greatly helped by every word that is translated. Select a language and start hovering over the text with the S Pen, you will start seeing bubbles with the translation.
Write on Calendar
Write on calendar or write on calendar feature is also new to the testers, this may be because the testers didn’t fully test the S Pen on the Notes version and didn’t know this feature existed or not.
