Yesterday, we took a look at leaked images from case maker Ringke which suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 S-Pen sits flush with the bottom edge – that is, there is likely an electrically activated feature that makes the S-Pen eject, like an auto-eject feature for instance. Well, the S-Pen has today gotten its own leak, getting spotted in the flesh and it looks… well, it looks like an S-Pen. Predictably, there isn’t a whole lot different appearance-wise compared to previous Samsung styluses – the capacitive tip and side button make their return. However, despite all the familiarities, there is one notable thing to note about the S-Pen which is obvious in the images below:
If you take a look at the top of the S-Pen, you will see that there appears to be some kind of movable button feature, similar to a ballpoint pen, although it’s probably not for this purpose as the tip is already out. We’ve got a few theories about this new part: it’s either an extra button (the less likely of the two), or its some kind of eject feature i.e. when you request your S-Pen, this new part flicks out, giving you the finger space you need to pull out the S-Pen. Unfortunately, this makes the auto-eject feature we mentioned yesterday less likely, but this is still quite a cool innovation.
