Galaxy Tab S4 firmware shows new features of S Pen for Note 9




An employee of XDA Developers has looked at the firmware of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and has learned from this which new features the S Pen has. The pin for the Note 9 will be equipped with Bluetooth for the first time this year.

Since the Galaxy Tab S4 is the first Samsung device with Android 8.1 and the Note 9 will run the same software, Max Weinbach of XDA Developers could examine leaked firmware of the tablet for references to the S Pen.

Weinbach looked at the AirCommand app, where he found a number of images and references to the S Pen. From this he knew that there is actually a battery in the pen, though it was not clear how big it will be.

Furthermore, it became clear that it will be possible to manipulate the music player with the pen, to use it as a wireless shutter for the camera and that he can play a role in unlocking the phone. In addition, Weinbach speaks about other functions that can be assigned per button to the button on the pen.

Samsung announces the Galaxy Note 9 on 9 August during the Unpacked event . Some specifications of the device have already been leaked, such as the 161,9×76,3×8,8mm format, the 6,3 “-oled screen with 2960×1440 pixel resolution, the Snapdragon 845-soc and the 4000mAh battery.
