Over the past few months, the Galaxy Note 7 has been subjected to several leaks and rumors that have given us a fair idea of what to expect from the next Galaxy Note Phablet. A leaked Samsung memo obtained by iGyaan hints at slightly redesigned S Pen stylus and two new Air Command features. The Galaxy Note 5 suffered from a known issue where the S Pen would get jammed when inserted backwards. The redesigned stylus on the Galaxy Note 7 along with push to eject type of mechanism could help solve this issue.
