    Samsung teases evolved and improved S Pen for the Galaxy Note 5

    What do humanity's greatest accomplishments have in common, the classic books and symphonies, iconic buildings and infrastructure, all of them have one thing in common: someone somewhere picked up a pen and got to work. In this day and age digital solutions have eliminated the need for pens in many aspects of our daily lives but many still attach the feelings of freedom, creativity and personality with handwritten notes. In a new post on its official blog Samsung appreciates all of the contributions that the pen has made to humanity while it extols the virtues of its S Pen that has been improved and refined with each new edition, Samsung goes so far to call it “one of the most technologically advanced pens of all time.”

    The post walks us through the various kinds of writing instruments that have been used throughout history, from calligraphy brushes thousands of years ago in China to quills in the not so distant past. Many of history's greatest writers like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Mark Twain heavily relied upon fountain pens to write while others relied upon technical and ballpoint pens. This inevitably brings us to the S Pen which has been a staple on the Galaxy Note series of handsets since they were originally launched. It started off as a mere stylus and the most recent iteration in the Galaxy Note 4 is capable of simulating finger touch, tap and swipe gestures to provide a full touch-screen environment without the user actually having to touch the display. It even features a multifunction button with shortcut gestures to improve input time.

    Samsung points out that the S Pen is already in its fourth edition and ends the post with a teaser, wondering how exciting it is to see the S Pen “evolve and improve as time goes on.” The timing of this post is no coincidence, we're merely days away from Samsung's next Unpacked event on August 13 where it's likely to unveil the Galaxy Note 5 which is obviously going to come with the S Pen. We'll have to wait and see though just how it has evolved and improved since last year.
