The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 will undoubtedly have support for the S Pen like its predecessor. However, there was hope among Samsung fans that it will finally be the first foldable to have an internal slot for S pen storage. According to a report from Korean outlet ET News, Samsung was initially working on including a slot for the S Pen but decided to scrap the idea on the final model. Reportedly, the slot would have increased the thickness of the device.

According to the reports, the S Pen has a high technical threshold, thus, a built-in S Pen is possible. However, Samsung will not want this because the phone will become much thicker. The company thinks that it is not worth it. Of course, another way is to make the pen thinner. But in this case, the writing experience of the stylus will become worse. Also, it will cost more to produce this lower pen, thus, this is not an option. 

“The hinge structure of the new foldable product has changed, and the internal space structure has also changed, making it difficult to mount the S Pen,” a source close to the matter told ET News.
