At the same time two different pens were presented that works with the fold (softer rubber tips and spring for softening impacts on screen).
The S-Pen Fold Edition looks like the pen that comes with some of Samsungs Tablets and only works with the Fold3 at the moment. Unfortunately it doesn't slot into the Z Fold3 like the Note series pens does but Samsung has made a special case for the phone that lets you stow the pen to avoid losing it. Its features are more limited than recent S Pens from the Note 9 onward. You don't get gesture controls or Bluetooth connectivity.
The S-Pen Pro is bigger in every way, more expensive and uses bluetooth and can connect to multiple devices. A toggle lets you switch mode between the Fold3 and other S Pen-compatible phones and tablets. A USB-C port on the top lets you charge it. It can also be tracked with the SmartThings app so you should be able to locate it if you lose it. This one doesn't fit in the Z Fold 3 Case, however there's a special sleeve for the pen to protect it (but it is a separate sleeve not connected in anyway to your Z Fold 3).
And as icing on the cake we got the Galaxy Buds2;

What are your thoughts? Are you going to buy any of them? Or do you feel that you expected something different? Let's discuss! 😊
Wow thanks for summarising the event so well!
I am not after a new phone at the moment.. even though the Flip3 is looking very tempting.. But I am definitely getting a pair of Buds as I've been wanting some for the last year. The Buds2 are a bit more in my price range than the Pro's, so I reckon I will go for these 😍
