What changes are there to the S Pen with the Samsung Galaxy Note8?

Last Update Date : Mar 22. 2018

The Samsung Galaxy Note8′s S Pen now has a finer tip with improved pressure sensitivity, making it easier to use.


It is now capable of translating full sentences by highlighting the text, and can also perform currency conversions in the same way.


Text messages can now be hand-written using the S Pen, and be received and read on any device as they are sent using the GIF file format.


Screen off mode means that you can now pin notes and to-do lists to your Always On Display, and edit and add to them without having to unlock your phone.


The PENUP app has been updated to include a library of colouring books designed specifically for the S Pen.
