Document filed with the FCC reveals Bluetooth LE capabilities for the new S Pen9
We've been passing along many rumors about the new S Pen that will come out of the box with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Talk that the accessory would actually double as a Bluetooth device was seconded today by the release of a document filed with the FCC that was dated late last month. First, some basic information; the S Pen will carry a model number of EJ-PN960. That makes sense since the Galaxy Note 9 has a model number of SM-N960. The "P" most likely refers to "pen," and the FCC refers to the device as a "Stylus Pen."
The exciting news from this specific aforementioned document is that the pen will connect to the Note 9 over 2.4GHz Bluetooth LE, which means that the device will have some sort of Bluetooth LE capabilities (check the image at the top of this article). According to tipster Ice Universe, the S Pen could double as a wireless Bluetooth speaker. It also is expected to control the streaming of music and operate a long-range timer. The bad news is that because of its rumored Bluetooth LE features, the S Pen will need a battery, which could make it thicker.
We will learn all on August 9th, during Samsung's next Unpacked event. That is when the Galaxy Note 9 will be unveiled. The S Pen will be a highlight of the event as the accessory was featured by Samsung on the invitation.
