FCC confirms Samsung Galaxy S21 supports the S-Pen

We are 3 weeks away from the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21, and now even the FCC has joined in the leaking game.

AndroidAuthority reports that the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has passed through the FCC, and that the company has quietly confirmed the device will be usable with the S-Pen.


The note says:

“The EUT [device being tested – ed] can also used with a stylus device (S-Pen). The EUT operates with the S-Pen in two different inductive coupling modes of S-Pen motion detection (Hover and Click)…”

The entry also confirms support for UWB, WIFI 6E and reverse wireless charging at a good 9W power level.

Only the S21 Ultra will be supporting the S-Pen, and it will not have a stylus slot. Instead, Samsung will be selling a case with its own external slot for the pen.

Unfortunately, the pen will not be bundled but will be sold as an optional extra.
