S Pen smells like burnt plastic, Galaxy S24 Ultra users concerned

Samsung Intelligence Voice Services update

Following the Note series, Samsung launched the Galaxy S22 Ultra with an S-Pen, which has been maintained up to the S24 Ultra and is expected to continue in subsequent models. Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra have encountered an unexpected issue with their S Pen stylus that is it smells like burnt plastic. This concern has been discussed by users on Reddit and addressed in the Samsung Community forums.

Samsung is already aware of these concerns and the community moderator explained that the smell is due to the S Pen’s storage location near the phone’s internal components, which generate heat during use. This heat can cause the S Pen’s plastic to warm up and emit a smell, which is unusual but not harmful.

Furthermore, the moderator assured users that this is normal and will fade as the device cools. He compared it to the temporary smell in a car that has been parked in the sun.

This concern is not exclusive to the S24 Ultra, as it was also reported with the Galaxy S22 Ultra. If you notice a burnt smell from your S-Pen, it is a known and expected behavior, not a cause of concern.

‘This isn’t anything to be concerned about. While the S Pen is in its holster, it is close to the internal components of the phone, which will generate heat while in use, and cause the plastic to heat up. This can smell like burning, but it is similar to the smell you might experience after leaving your car in the sun for a few hours. The seats and plastic fittings in the vehicle might smell hot, but this will diminish after it cools,’ said Moderator.
