How do I connect the Note9 S Pen via Bluetooth?

Last Update Date : Aug 31. 2018

Take full advantage of the Note9 through the use of the remote control S Pen which has a range of up to 10m.


The pen supplied with the Note9 is already connected to the device so there is no need to make a Bluetooth connection manually.

Please note: You can only connect Samsung-approved S Pens that support Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).
