All of the leaks and rumors point to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 not being a big upgrade, but according to a reliable tipster, the same can't be said about the S Pen. Twitter user Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) said a little over a week ago that the new S Pen is "worth the wait" and "may be the biggest update in the history of the S Pen."
Yesterday, the tipster stated that the new S Pen will be able to control music playback and have a long-range self-timer. Interestingly enough, the S Pen is also said to be a "Bluetooth device" and "will do something unrelated to the pen." There has been speculation that the S Pen could double as a wireless Bluetooth speaker.
If the above turns out to be true, the Galaxy Note 9 just got a lot more exciting and will bring innovation to an industry that's been lacking it. Samsung is prepared to announce their upcoming phablet at their Unpacked event on August 9th.
