The paperwork that Samsung entered for the S Pen of the Galaxy Note 9 at the FCC reveals a Bluetooth connection. In other words, the stylus of the new Note can be more than its predecessors.
There has been a lot of work recently on the S Pen stylus of the upcoming Galaxy Note 9. Last week we found out that this probably can be a few new tricks. And yesterday we could use the different versions of the pen to deduce in which colors the Note 9 itself will appear on the market. Today the stylus is again in the spotlight: he turns out to have a Bluetooth connection,
At the American inspection service of radiant electronics – the FCC – the S Pen of the Galaxy Note 9 dives. Not only are we confirming the model code that we published yesterday, but the documentation still contains an interesting detail. The S Pen is equipped with its own Bluetooth connection.
For the record: up to now, S Pens did not have their own Bluetooth connection. With this, the stylus of the Note 9 seems to be making a big step for the first time in the field of (possible) functionality. Finally, a Bluetooth connection makes many more features than just pointing, writing and drawing. The S Pen could act as a ‘headset’ or as a remote control for all kinds of functions.
Exactly what these functions are is not clear from the FCC documents. We therefore have to wait until we get to know exact details – possibly until August 9th. On that day, Samsung will officially launch the Galaxy Note 9, and of course explain it. We know that the device looks more or less the same as the Galaxy Note 8 . So there is little innovation in this area in this area. However, the camera should be significantly better , the battery bigger , and – as it turns out now – the S Pen more functional.
Whether the Galaxy Note 9 will be worth the expected retail price of € 999 for the model with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, we only know once the device is unveiled.
