While the S Pen has always been the highlight of the Samsung Note Series, the pen was more like an extra accessory than an essential part of the device. Basically, the users would not really miss the S Pen if there were to lose it but that will change with the Note 8.
According to the announcement, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will come with an upgraded S Pen that is not only slimmer but agiler and more responsive as well. The tip is finer and it is also more sensitive to pressure.
Samsung also gave the S Pen some extra protection as the stylus is now rated IP68 which means it is as water resistance and dust resistance as the rest of the device. To ensure that the Note 8 was actually good to write on, Samsung also gave it a flatter display when compared to the S8.
Features like the screen off memo, Live Messages, and the translation feature will make full use of the stylus this time around. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is turning out to be one of the best Android smartphones this year if you can overlook the price of the device.
