There Might Be A Camera Inside The Galaxy Note 10's Stylus

There Might Be A Camera Inside The Galaxy Note 10's Stylus”

Samsung's last S-Pen used a supercapacitor to quickly charge the device via the stylus slot. The sensor to click the image will be controlled by the button placed on the S Pen itself.

The S Pen is Samsung's productivity tool that's used on smartphones, tablets and even notebooks.

If this concept ever became reality, two possible downsides include the fact that such a stylus would likely be much more expensive than the S-Pen and the battery life wouldn't be so great.

A patent for the system described above was filed by Samsung in 2017, and granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office just yesterday, when it was published by the governmental regulatory body. According to a newly granted patent, the company may add a camera with an optical zoom into the pen.

With screens getting bigger with virtually no bezels, this could be an alternative solution to solve the selfie camera conundrum.

The S-Pen has been part of Samsung's flagship phablet since the very first Galaxy Note and is indispensable for fans of the smartphone series. Using the extra space in the stylus opens up an opportunity to include a wider range of optical zoom options.

Given how tiny the S Pen is, it's hard to imagine that there is enough room inside the pint-sized stylus to fit a capable shooter. We are in the eighth generation with the Galaxy Note 9 - remember, Samsung skipped the Galaxy Note 6 ...

You could also imagine the camera being attractive to obsessive note-takers who want to quickly snap a photograph of a presentation while they're writing on their device, especially if image-to-text conversion is incorporated. Additionally, the pen would offer more versatility when taking photos, letting users get into positions that would be awkward if holding a phone. The current S Pen is fitted with a clicker that lets you take snaps with the Note 9.
