Samsung Galaxy Note 9's S Pen will reportedly be able to double up as a Bluetooth remote, letting users control music, click photos, among other things. The Note 9, Samsung's next flagship, is expected to launch at the Samsung Unpacked event on August 9.
The phablet-sized Note series is Samsung's only line-up which uses the S Pen. Until the Note 8, the pressure sensitive stylus was mainly used to write or draw on the screen and also to navigate through menus and settings.
According to popular tipster Ice Universe and several other reports, Samsung is looking to 'reimagine' the S Pen in the latest reiteration. The S Pen will allegedly come with Bluetooth functionalities, which can also be used to control your music playlist and also double up as a remote shutter for the camera. This means you can place your phone away from you and click pictures with the S Pen.
Whether or not there will be more applications of the S Pen remains to be seen. It was earlier reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will come with a hardware camera button.
As per earlier reports and leaks, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will have a design similar to the Note 8 and come with a 6.4-inch display. The device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Soc or an Exynos 9810, depending on the region, and come equipped with 8GB of RAM, up to 512GB of inbuilt storage, and a 4,000mAh battery. There have also been reports that the Note 9 may come with a triple camera setup on the back, like the one found in the Huawei P20 Pro.
