However, Samsung has updated the Galaxy Note 9 with Bluetooth enabled S-pen stylus, scene detection enabled dual cameras and updated Bixby assistant. Also, you will only need a USB Type-C to HDMI connector (instead of Dex) to connect your phone to any monitor.

What’s new in the Galaxy Note 9 S-Pen:


Well, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 S-pen is now Bluetooth enabled and it can be used for from clicking images, to play pause videos, or to change presentation slides. That’s not all, the S-Pen can be used to control music or to unlock the Galaxy Note 9. Samsung has promised to release the S-Pen SDK for developers to develop a new way to use the S-Pen.

It takes less than a minute (40 seconds) to charge it and its battery lasts for about an hour. Regular work like doodling or jotting down notes doesn’t require power.
