    The S Pen has received its biggest update ever with the Galaxy Note 9. It's the first time that the stylus has got Bluetooth support. This enables the S Pen to perform a wide variety of features that were just not possible before.

    Some of you must be wondering what's new in Galaxy Note 9 S Pen. The important thing to note (pun intended) is that all of the features that S Pen users already know and love are still there. This includes screen off memo, the Air Command menu and more. Even when it's not charged, the S Pen can still perform all of those features.

    What's new in Galaxy Note 9 S Pen

    The new S Pen has a Bluetooth Low-Energy module and antenna which enables it to act as a remote control within a 10-meter radius of the device. It can be used as a shutter button for the camera, as a clicker during a presentation or even as a remote to play and pause video.

    There's a Super Capacitor built inside the S Pen which can charge it fully in 40 seconds. It will last for 30 minutes on a full charge and that Super Capacitor will ensure that your stylus never runs out of charge since you're always going to put it back inside whenever you're done using it.
