After teasing the possibility of three device launches on August 13, Samsung has now released a new teaser on its official blog claiming that the S Pen that is set to come along with the Galaxy Note 5 will be “one of the most technologically advanced pens of all time.”
The blog does not highlight the spec details on the S Pen but hints that the accessory will ‘evolve and improve’ this time. The blog post titled ‘What the pen has meant to humanity’ trails back to the use of writing instruments in the course of history. The blog also highlights the different use cases of a pen in our daily life, before hinting at the fact that the new S Pen will be much better than its predecessors.
The new S Pen had also leaked a few weeks ago, revealing a shiny metal-clad stylus compete with an interesting clickable button on top. It is speculated that this could be a strategic design change to ease user experience while removing the pen from the body of the smartphone.
The S Pen has been synonymous with the Galaxy Note series and has evolved with every upgrade of the phablet. It began as a mere stylus, and the latest S Pen with the Galaxy Note 4 was capable of finger touch tap and air gestures with shortcuts and full touchscreen commands.
The Galaxy Note 5 is expected to be unveiled alongside a Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and a possible 18.4-inch tablet. Leaks reveal that the phablet will flaunt a 5.7-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels and a pixel density of 515 ppi. It also offers 32GB internal storage, runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and has a 16-megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel front camera.
