Last Update date : 2015.10.02

S Pen

The S Pen is a stylus that assists you in performing different functions.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Remove S Pen

The S Pen stores inside your device for convenient access.

1. Push the S Pen inward until it pops out of the device.

2. Slide the S Pen out the rest of the way using the notch on the end of the S Pen.


Note: When you insert the S Pen into the slot, insert the S Pen’s nib first. Failure to do so can cause the S Pen to become stuck. Forcefully detaching the S Pen from the slot may cause damage to the S Pen and your device.
