Samsung mobile is gearing up to launch its next flagship device from the Galaxy Note-series, and while we already know it won’t feature any notable update in its design, rumors have it that the company is adding some new innovations to the accompanying S Pen stylus. The company had in an official launch teaser hints at a focus on the S Pen, specifically its button.
Although we already know the Note 9 s pen stylus will be getting a major upgrade, renowned tech leakster Ice Universe comes in at just the right time to shield more light on the manner of upgrade we should expect. The leakster in a separate post on Weibo and Twitter claims the Note 9 Pen stylus will come with a Bluetooth upgrade, which will essentially allow it do much more than just write on the Galaxy Note 9’s screen.
Precisely, the leakster claims the S Pen’s new Bluetooth upgrade will enable it to control your music ( by ways of using the stylus’ button to pause and skip tracks) and be used as a long-range self-timer, which would be especially handy for taking group photos from a distance.
Coming back to the Note 9 design, previous reports have it that the device will come with a repositioned fingerprint sensor, now sitting below the dual camera modules, this position if true should help avoid accidental touches to the camera lens, and smudging caused due to fingerprints.
Banking on previous reports, the Note 9 is tipped to come with a somewhat larger 6.4-inch display, up to 8GB RAM with 512GB storage, and a monstrous 4000mAh battery with an alleged rating of up to 2-days battery life and 25 hours non-stop video playback.
Do note, that these are mere rumors and speculations as none of these have been confirmed by Samsung, so we might have to wait till August 9 when the Note 9 will be unveiled.
