Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Stylus Will Have Bluetooth

Samsung will announce and introduce its upcoming Galaxy Note 9 smartphone on August 0th, but the FCC has already revealed a number of details about the much-anticipated flagship device. The stylus – one of the distinctive features of the Note series – will feature Bluetooth connectivity.

The stylus has received the type number EJ-PN960 and is being rated separately by the FCC. Bluetooth is mentioned in the specifications, which would also be the reason why the included stylus is being rated separately from the smartphone in the first place. An FCC rating is only necessary if the device is capable of communications, which was not the case for previous Galaxy Note styluses, known as the ‘S Pen’.

The FCC report also reveals the type number for the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone itself would be N960. Samsung has already shown the Note 9 stylus in a teaser video for the announcement of the phone. The S Pen would be a unique selling point, and the Bluetooth connection would allow users to use the pen as a shutter-button for the camera or as a music control device, for example. It’s unclear what functionalities Samsung is planning to implement for the S Pen, but we’ll definitely find out on August 9th.

The previous Note smartphone, the Galaxy Note 8, featured a 6.3 inch AMOLED display. According to rumors, the Note 9 would use the same screen size but would add a little bit of thickness to the design, perhaps to accommodate a larger battery.
