Note 7 picture with S Pen pops up, the stylus may function under water

Well, well, well, what do we have here today, folks - a purported official Galaxy Note 7 image leaked by an electronics store and tech blog CEO in Vietnam. Samsung has a factory there, and several of the Note 7 models for US carriers that were approved by the FCC not long ago, carried the "Made in Vietnam" sign (SM-N930A for AT&T, SM-N930P for Sprint, and SM-N930R4 for U.S. Cellular), so there is a pretty decent chance that the image is not just a great render...

Two things: 1. Never have I asked for help. I can stand up for myself be it winning or losing. and 2. You don't tell me what to say/do. My 'sexual' comments shouldn't bother if you just stop caring about almost everyone's comments in every post. And in my defense of posting sexual stuff? I am certainly not the only one doing that since you're just relatively new here. You look more like desperate for attention rather than being here to talk about tech and have fun.

Put a 4000mAh battery in this and I'll sell my Note 5 for this.

"how exactly has Samsung managed to pull that off, considering how deep the stylus silo goes into the phone's chassis" PA - more shoddy writing. How exactly does the stylus "silo" have ANY impact on it's ability to write on screen while underwater? That makes NO sense. Typical of the writing here. As for the phones ability to write underwater.. a marketing gimick and perhaps highlight of technology. I can't see but a few people actually needing this capability. If this however also means that the screen can used when it's wet.. then that's a great thing!

There's no reason the stylus wouldnt work underwater, as it's not relying on the same tech as finger-to-touchscreen. What they're reffering to is that it would be more difficult to keep the phone waterproof while the s-pen is in use because the silo is so deep that more water gets "inside" the body of the phone and could actually get trapped there by the stylus.

Bring back removable batteries for the love of god. It doesn't look likes it's ever gonna happen which truly bums me out. Now u have to buy a battery bank or a case with a built in battery. For example, I just bought 2 new batteries for my note 4 on shop android. It's purring like a day one champ again. Eventually these batteries go it's inevitable on every phone. And when that battery is sealed in, what are you going to do, what ARE you going to do?

Then youll be stuck on note 4 forever. There will be no high end phone with removeable battery (except g5)
