The S Pen is an important part of Samsung’s Note series, each year we’re treated to new S Pen tricks and now we know three that could be unveiled tomorrow. 

Samsung try to implement new ideas every year, some are hits and some are misses, but the S Pen always proves to be an integral part of the Galaxy Note experience. Otherwise you’re just using an oversized Samsung Galaxy device.

We don’t know exactly how many S Pen features will be announced, three have been leaked right here for us to enjoy. The three S Pen features are: Translate, Magnify and Glance.

S Pen tricks


Translate as the name suggests will help users translate certain words on screen. Screenshots show how users can simply hover over words with the S Pen to translate. Tapping on the speaker icon will have the phone sound the word out phonetically.


Magnify is the second, and easiest to explain. You can select large areas to be enlarged by hovering over the selected area. Reading documents with tiny fonts will be a lot easier.


The final trick is Glance, which will allow users to quickly switch between apps by hovering the S Pen over the thumbnail. You can apparently do all of this underwater. Can we expect this S Pen tricks up Samsung’s sleeve?
