Will push an upgraded version of the S Pen Pro stylus
It is worth mentioning that although Samsung S21 Ultra added support for the S Pen stylus for the first time this time, it does not provide Bluetooth functionality, so it cannot have the air-operated function like Samsung Note 20 series and other models.
