Earlier this year with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21, Samsung finally broke the S Pen’s exclusivity to its Note series. However, the downside is that while the Galaxy S21 supports the S Pen, there’s just no place to store it safely, meaning you’d need to keep it in a bag or your pocket where there’s a chance you could lose it.

However, that could change in 2022 with the Galaxy S22. This is according to a tweet by Ice Universe who shared alleged case renders for the Galaxy S22 where as you can see according to the cutouts, there will be a slot for the S Pen, meaning that the Galaxy S22 could actually come with a dedicated slot for the S Pen’s safekeeping.

There have been rumors suggesting that Samsung could be merging the Note series into the S-series, and that the Galaxy S22 Ultra could actually be renamed as the Galaxy Note Ultra, which would make sense given the S Pen integration. However Ice Universe followed up with a separate tweet that claims that there will not be a change in name and that it is “confirmed 100%”.

Of course, as is the case with all leaks and rumors, they’re best taken with a grain of salt so don’t read too much into this for now and hopefully we’ll be able to uncover more clues about the Galaxy S22 in the future.
