The Samsung Notebook 9 Pen is a Galaxy Note-flavored convertible tablet

On the heels of rumors that Samsung is working on a powerful, Chrome OS tablet, code named ‘Nautilus’, the company at CES unveiled the Notebook 9 Pen – a 13.3-inch, Galaxy Note flavored convertible tablet.
The Notebook 9 Pen’s design is nothing to write home about, with its generic-looking aluminum base and uninspired curved edges, but it is really, really portable. With a body built from light, but durable, magnesium alloy, the 13-inch Notebook 9 Pen is incredibly light, weighing in at just 2.2 pounds. It’s also pretty thin, measuring at .64 inches at its thickest, …


May the S Pen be with you: Samsung to release a Star Wars edition Note 8?

Samsung has been in the practice of selling super hero-themed limited edition versions of its top-tier devices in the past few years. First, we saw an Avengers-themed icon pack for the Galaxy Note 4. Then, we got an awesome-looking Iron Man Galaxy S6 edge — with the red skin, gold accents, and software facelift to match. Later, an all-black, Batman-themed Galaxy S7 edge had us drooling over its stealthy look and fan-pleasing accessory box. Now, it seems we are about to get…

Future S Pen might capture digital signatures and carry a microphone

Back in 2014, a patent application filed by Samsung with the USPTO showed a stylus with a built-in microphone and a speaker. Phone calls could be made through the device. According to the filing, the stylus “functions as a substitute for a wireless headset” allowing the user “to mount the pen to a shirt pocket or the like, and communicate in a phone call using the portable terminal as a base.”

Today, some three years later, a report out of Korea says that Samsung’s S Pen development chief Chae Won-sik has admitted that studies are underway to determine the best way to add a microphone to …

Leaked images purport to show Galaxy Note 8’s S Pen

At the beginning of the month, we saw some concept renders for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that seemed in line with pretty much all rumours about the device so far. The images also revealed the S Pen that will supposedly come in the Note 8 bundle and, even though there weren’t any close up takes on it, it didn’t appear to be visibly different from the one that came with the flammable Note 7.

Some new leaked images, allegedly of the Note 8 S Pen, have surfaced today to provide a closer look at the device, but it’s safe to say that they don’t give us much more detail …

This new concept render shows us the Galaxy Note 8 in its full glory, S Pen and all

There have been quite a lot of Galaxy Note 8 leaks and rumors already, including renders and concepts of its potential design. Although we are not quite sure where the fingerprint scanner is going to be positioned, with the options being to the side of the camera or below it, it’s fairly certain that the phone will be inheriting the general looks of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ with merely a few minor revisions. 

There’s a new concept render in town and it’s falling in line with pretty much all the rumors pertaining to the Note 8 thus far – featuring a dual camera at the back and …

The Microsoft Surface Mobile will include a built-in projector, Surface Pen, and Win32 app support, leak shows

It’s been a while since we’ve heard rumors of the mythical creature known as the Surface Phone, but if the rumor mill is to be trusted, a number of huge details about it (like, for example, that it hasn’t been shelved like most of us suspected) may have just been revealed by Microsoft itself.

As far as obscurity goes, the source of the information probably ranks pretty high on your average Westerner’s list – a video description on Microsoft’s official account on Bilibili, a Chinese, anime-themed YouTube-like video sharing service. The text reveals …

Microsoft has created the first stylus with no perceived lag: the new Surface Pen

Microsoft claims to have created the “fastest pen in the world,” but what does that even mean?
It’s quite simple actually: after years of research, Microsoft has finally been able to make a stylus that works with almost no visual delay, a paramount change in the experience. This is the new Microsoft Surface Pen, and it’s got other super-powers as well: a whopping 4,096 pressure levels and the ability to recognize tilt, so that you can use it to shade things, just like with a regular pensil.

Could the Galaxy Note 8 look just like a larger S8 (with S Pen)?

At the beginning of the year, Samsung said that, after the Note 7, it would bring us a “better, safer and very innovative” Galaxy Note handset. Naturally, this should be the Galaxy Note 8, which is expected to be released sometime in the second half of 2017.

This weekend, a photo allegedly showing the Galaxy Note 8 surfaced on the web, showing a device that’s nearly identical to the Galaxy S8. However, there are some problems with this leaked photo (embedded in the slideshow below).

First of all, if we look at the top of this alleged Note 8, we can’t see any sensors on the left …
