    Looking forward to this Hopefully all the leaks will be true and the Fold 3 will finally have a full screen on the interior (no punch hole). I've had my Fold 2 since launch and I can genuinely say it's the only thing I would (practically) want to change about the device - so that + a spec bump would be a worthy upgrade.

    The only slight concern is that the addition of S-Pen support (which is largely pointless imo) will add some bulk to the device or more plastic protection rubbish on the screen (noting that I took the included screen protector off my Fold 2 a month after buying it, which dramatically improved the look/feel). Hopefully the pen will be a separate purchase too for those of us that don't want/need one. We'll see though!

    Don't hold your breath on that. Samsung seem to tend to include them on the higher-end tablets. Never used one of those but I find the pen on the Surface Pro very useful indeed. I have a fancy Arc mouse too, but rarely use it. Mostly, pen .... or finger.

    I do use the S-Pen on my Tab S6, although rarely these days since I tend to find the Fold 2 covers 90% of tablet duties.....it is a nice thing to have for writing on the screen, taking quick sketches etc.

    The thing with the fold though is the crease...It's completely invisible when watching content on the screen (very clever trick of the eyes I guess, but you really don't see it when watching content), but you can feel it with your finger - and it would totally disrupt the ability to write/draw on the screen clearly.

    We'll find out in a few weeks I guess. I would not be at all surprised if they omit it entirely and the leaks were wrong.
