Hey @users0eYJrjzHz, I hope you're doing well.

 

Great question. The answer is, hardware. The S21 Ultra is the top spec'd of the line. Part of the display's hardware enables it to use the S-Pen. Adding this to the rest of the line would increase cost which overall wouldn't be great. So Samsung crams all of this top of the line specs in its most expensive of the lineup. 

 

I hope this answers your question.

 

Take care!

Thank you for such a through answer...Guess it time to switch to note 21.

Ultra 21 is way too big for me ...

New questions...when is the note 21 coming out? :thinking_face:

No problem!

 

Sadly, I have no info on a possible Note 21. Even rumors have been a bit dry on it unfortunately. I will keep my fingers crossed with you!
