According to a new leak, the stylus will also allow you to trigger a long-range remote self-timer.

Herr Zeba, 03 Jul 2018You know, when I look at this press release image, I can't stop ... moreIf you got the Note 8 for 500USD then good for you, I got the 256GB version back in November for a little more than 5000CNY and already I'm satisfied, it's more than 30% cheaper than the official price in China, IIRC.

You know, when I look at this press release image, I can't stop thinking that they will let users remap Bixby button. After all, Samsung is well known for listening to the users feedback. Two years after battery issue they are ready to finally bring decent capacity, so who knows what else they have planned. I bought used Note 8 and I love it! Wait 6+ months, get it much cheaper. I would not spend more than 500 for a phone.

Perhaps I am missing something but why would I want music controls on my S Pen when more than likely the headphones I'm using will have them anyway and probably make a better job of it. And of course the S Pen would now need a battery. Just seems like an utterly pointless gimmick to me, that causes more issues than it actually fixes. A fix to a problem I didn't have in the first place the caused a new problem I now do have as a result of something I didn't want in the first place. Even if my headphones don't have the controls by the time I've got the S-Pen out I might as well use the screen. I'm just really not seeing the point of it at all.

It's been one year, with some improvement, makes you think twice or ten times to buy another note 8.

vrvly, 02 Jul 2018Well, you shove it "under screen"...What is the essential function of having fingerprint on the pen? Do we bring the pen at that often so we need to unlocking it by pen?

Unlock by connected-wearable devices are more useful.

But it's not a deal breaker for me, though the amount of pranks I could pull with it.....

People with phones that have no IR Blaster don't know how epic would it be when you turn off someone's TV while many people are watching

ALMBO6, 02 Jul 2018What's the meaning of asking someone to get a life? Technically: it's an insult. But I don't have any intention to, I mean that the person needs to do more important stuff than "trolling"

They also patented an alcohol blower inside the S-pen, maybe we will get that in the Note 10. xD

Maybe its hidden "under screen" fingerprint scanner on the pen that will slide/pop out. And you can use it as a keys to phone you won't unlock otherwise. Maybe even as keys to your house. So many possibilities... :)
