After its announcement at Samsung Unpacked on 9th February, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series went on sale from 25th February, promising a great overall experience for those looking to buy an Android phone. The lineup consists of three devices featuring iterative upgrades with the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus and a substantial change to the Ultra variant. Last year's Galaxy S21 Ultra sees its successor, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, revamped into a device that embodies the essence of Samsung's popular Note lineup.

But, seeing as the Galaxy S21 Ultra featured S Pen support without a dedicated silo, it may raise the question, do the traditional Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus also support the S Pen?

Unfortunately, Samsung has limited S Pen compatibility to only the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Both Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus will remain as traditional bar phones without access to productivity-based features linked with the S Pen stylus.

If you are a prospective Galaxy S22 Ultra buyer, we've detailed more information about the accessory below.
