    You know that little dot that shows up on your Galaxy Note when you hover the S Pen near its display, right? Well, soon you will be able to replace that dot with something fancy – Samsung is launching Penvatars, which are small avatars that will show up whenever you point the S Pen stylus on the screen. Samsung has teamed up with Marvel for these Penvatars, meaning you will be able to select from Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and other superheros in the Marvel universe, including avatars like the Captain American shield and the like.

    Penvatars will only be supported on the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge, though it's possible Samsung will add support for the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Note tablets down the line. The company hasn't said when the Penvatars will be available for download, but whenever they do go online, you should be able to grab from the Galaxy Apps store on your device.

    What do you think about the Penvatars?

    Ah, the Galaxy Note 4. It's perhaps the last “true” Note flagship if you ask some of the diehard fans, and for good reason, too. It was the last Note to come with a removable battery or an IR blaster. When the Galaxy Note 5 came along, the Note 4 was also temporarily the last […]
