Korean media says the Galaxy Note 5 S Pen won’t have an auto-eject mechanism

All the mock renders of the Galaxy Note 5 and its cases had everyone thinking the phablet would come with a new way of removing the S Pen, that users would be able to just push it in to make it pop out. But the latest report out of the Korean media is refuting that the S Pen on the Note 5 will have an auto-eject mechanism, and will require users to pull it out manually like they have been doing every existing Galaxy Note device.

We aren’t really surprised about this – DDaily’s report also confirms that the Note 5 will have the same design elements as the Galaxy S6, and putting an auto eject mechanism behind all that glass and metal would be a difficult task for Samsung. The report reiterates that the battery will be sealed in because of the glass back; it also mentions that “both sides were bent”, but it’s unclear if it is talking about the Note 5 or the Galaxy S6 edge, which it compares the phablet to (the report is translated using Google, so we’re not really sure.)

DDaily also says the Gear A will accompany the Galaxy Note 5, something we have already confirmed in the last couple of months. Are you disappointed that the S Pen on the Galaxy Note 5 will have a manual ejection function? (We know people are not going to like the non-removable battery, but that’s a discussion for another day.)

NO removable battery and NO SD-Card slot – We may opt for LG instead.

Still hoping for a Note 5
Compact -stylus optional at the size of S6 but 8.0 millimeter thick with 3500 Mah Battery.
Avoids angering S6 Buyers because it is more expensive Note Series.
Enables using S6 screens and glass and Battery from S6 Active.
Enables SD Support and additional Power Features of Note 5 in a
Pocket Sized Device.
Huge Worldwide Sales as many Pros have nowhere to carry a full sized Note Phone but
Need the features.

That pic is of the Note 4 and people complained about S-Pen being hard to pull out without fingernails. So as seen in many leaked pics that bottom where the S-Pen goes in is flat and centered in the middle of the bottom. We also see there is no ribbed place showing from the bottom, making it impossible to access the S-Pen to pull it out! Now how in the World do you think we can use the S-Pen if it doesn’t at least have a spring loaded mechanism, where you simply push on it? Also if….. Samsung was smart… Read more »

No removable battery = no need new note

No IR blaster = no need new note

Might be push in to eject instead of the current pull method.

That it is….. of 6 sites in Korea I found 5 saying it is spring loaded eject. Only the link above says it’s the same as Note 4! 😀 ……but then again this particular writer loves to hate on Samsung!!!

Every single render of the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 has contradicted this story.

It’s pretty clear based on the renders of the actual Spen as well as the Note5 renders that auto ejection or jesture based ejection exist.

Clearly it’s a slow media day in Korea as well in the United States.

Good Day! for me it’s okay if that’s the truth about the S Pen as long as there is a support of SD Card and very good Battery Life of it in case it is not removable..Thanks!

Sorry I take ufs over sd card support, but I am hopping it’s basic 64gb, this will,stop many from going on about sd card support as the next ver of Google OS m will only support sd cards as included hd, so you will not be able to transfer files like from your pc anyways by just putting in your sd card Please note that all oems that add sd card reader do it in a way that big time slowed down the bandwidth of the phone, this speed problem as nothing to do with the sd card being in… Read more »

As Samsung is using ufs there is no emmc controller for samsung to add the sd card reader into the phone, on top of this Samsung is using epop in the new note so they can add a very big battery For Samsung to add an sd card reader, its cheaper to just add 128gb Of hd to the phone, as they need to add an emmc controller to the phone and remove the epop setup and drop the battery size so they can make room for the emmc control and then the sd card reader will slow down the… Read more »

If the renders we saw are anything to go by, then the S Pen MUST have the push-to-eject feature, cause there’s no way you can pull it out like on the Note 4.

I am a bit of disappointed, I thought I was very happy if Samsung adds the auto-eject S Pen function. But now on, it’s not, sadly. 🙁
