S Pen Issue An issue that cannot be resolved through a software update has arisen concerning the Galaxy S Pen with the new S24 Ultra. Users on platforms like Reddit and various community forums have reported an unpleasant burnt plastic odor emanating from their S Pens. This concern has been corroborated by several users on forums and reputable publications such as 9to5Google and Gizmochina.

These sources confirm that the issue also affects older generations of S series phones such as the S23 and S22 Ultra, while the Note 20 Ultra remains unaffected. A Samsung spokesperson has addressed the issue online, explaining that the problem stems from the S Pen’s proximity to internal hardware components of the phone when stored in its slot. As these components heat up, they emit a burnt plastic smell onto the S Pen.
