The Smartest S Pen ever

One of the key features of Samsung's Galaxy Note series is the removable S-Pen. Now, it's received a number of new upgrades, making it an integral part of the Note9's appeal and charm. No longer just a useful little extra, the S-Pen is Bluetooth-enabled, allowing it to do so much more than just doodle or take notes.

It's a remote control for your phone, and can be used in a variety of situations, from triggering your camera for a fun selfie, to skipping songs on your playlist, to changing slides in an important presentation.  

Fantastic features  

The S Pen’s Bluetooth capabilities let you control the Note9 up to 10 metres away. Holding down the button on the S Pen will open the camera app and tapping the button once will snap a quick photo. When you double tap the S Pen, the camera will switch to the rear or front-facing camera. You can also set it to open your favourite apps, such as Google Chrome, WhatsApp or Facebook.  

The new S Pen is very intuitive about play and stop controls. Start music or video on a service – such as YouTube – and you can pause or resume play by pressing the S Pen button at any time. This is particularly handy when you are casting a video for a group or playing music over a Bluetooth speaker … and maybe just when you’re feeling a little lazy.
