Samsung Galaxy Note 9 S Pen Could Do Much More than Just Making Notes and Drawings

July 6, 2018, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung will have its new Galaxy Note unveiled at the Unpacked event that will be held in New York on August 9. Rumors have already thrown light over the specifications of the device, and quite apparently, the Note 9 might not be offering a big upgrade to the Note 8 device.

However, there are still specific areas where Samsung will pack major upgrades, and one among those is the S Pen. The stylus from Samsung for its Galaxy Note series has been one distinguishing feature of the phablet. The Note series no more draws line with the Galaxy S series in terms of screen sizes and specifications. And that apparently must be one of the major reasons why Samsung has decided to focus on what’s exclusive to the Note.

According to the FCC listing, the Galaxy Note 9 will be featuring an S Pen with built-in Bluetooth support. Yes, it would still have the same design and the one-button form factor, but the support for Bluetooth means that S Pen would be able to do much more than just mere drawings.

With built-in Bluetooth support, Samsung could overhaul the S Pen functionality in a major way, though we are not expecting it to happen straight away. With remote functionalities, S Pen could now act as a remote control for various applications based on what’s performed in your device.

Say you have opened the camera app on your Galaxy Note 9, and the S Pen could double as a Bluetooth Shutter device. Likewise , there are many other applications with which the one-click button could prove useful. We will have to see how far Samsung would be going in this regard though.

As with other specifications, the Note 9 is most likely to feature the Snapdragon 845 SoC and the corresponding Exynos chipset for specific markets along with 6GB RAM. A major upgrade would be in the storage department, as the Galaxy Note 9 is said to be coming out with a 512 GB version too. More words about that could be heard in the coming days.
