Samsung‘s latest flagship, the Galaxy S24 Ultra, is making waves in the smartphone world with its array of cutting-edge features. However, amidst the excitement, an unexpected issue has emerged, an unpleasant burnt plastic smell emanating from the S Pen stylus.

Discussions on this peculiar matter ignited on Reddit, observation of the “reeking” S Pen on their Galaxy S24 Ultra. Fellow users swiftly chimed in, echoing similar experiences.

According to a Samsung EU community, AndrewL, a forum moderator, the culprit behind this olfactory oddity lies in the S Pen’s proximity to internal components. Apparently, the stylus heats up while stored, emitting a scent reminiscent of “hot plastic,” akin to a sun-soaked car interior.

Interestingly, this aromatic anomaly isn’t exclusive to the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Previous iterations such as the Galaxy S23 Ultra and S22 Ultra also share this trait, smelling like burnt battery.


Have you noticed a similar burnt plastic smell emanating from the S Pen of your Galaxy S24 Ultra or other Samsung flagship models?
