The S Pen that will come with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will have three new features. The first one is called Translate. As you might expect, this allows a Galaxy Note 7 user to translate words from a foreign language by merely hovering the S Pen over that word. This will save time since no special app needs to be opened.
The second new feature to be found on this year’s S Pen is Magnify. Can you guess how this functions? If you said that you simply hover the S Pen over an area of the screen in order to make it bigger, you are absolutely correct. And that leaves the third new feature, Glance. This gives you the capability to switch between apps by hovering your S Pen over a floating app thumbnail.
With all signs pointing to an IP certificating rating for the Galaxy Note 7, we might even see users of the phablet have the capability of writing on the screen even while it is underwater. That would be quite a feat, although we’re not sure when you might need to employ it.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to be unveiled this Tuesday (August 2nd) during Sammy’s Unpacked event in New York City.
