Redesigned S Pen, two new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Air Command features revealed by leak

We already know a lot about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in terms of specs and design, but we are now beginning to hear more about the phablet's functionality features, which are definitely keeping us hyped up!

There is a new leak circulating on the interwebs that reveals what some of the new S Pen features of the Note 7 might be. According to, which has reportedly obtained an internal memo, Samsung has thrown in improved Bluetooth LE connectivity that will enhance the proximity accuracy and allow users to use the stylus longer.

The Air Command is also reportedly getting a functionality update. iGyaa claims the Galaxy Note 7 will score Dictionary and Speaking features — the first one will probably allow users to quickly translate words from one language to another, whereas the other could be a text-to-speech functionality. That's a bit speculative, yet logical.

It also seems that Samsung has redesigned the appearance S Pen stylus. While there might not be much leeway here, we suppose that the clickable button that was introduced alongside Note 5's stylus might be getting revised.

Additionally, iGyaan's secretive source claims the iris scanner will be able to lock apps, files, folders, and documents. The rumors about the Snapdragon 823 chipset making the rounds are also getting confirmed.

As a refresher, press images of the phone leaked a couple of days ago, giving us a great opportunity to gaze at the upcoming phablet. Feel free to check out our extensive rumor round-up to get all the info you might possibly want.

Absolutely a brilliant decision. You're not alone, palm. Don't hesitate to show what you've got right now. Being a Samsung user for a long time, I don't give a damn what some iSheeps in my class had to say like "go exchange for an iPhone, you punk!" Then I responded "f*ck off, you annoying sheeples!" At least I feel safe, safe from being ripped off by the fruity clown which they regard as God, I think the world needs help. The Note 7 will definitely own the world when it comes out.

I kind of wish that they would make the device slightly thicker if it would accommodate a larger S-Pen. My main issue with the thing is that it becomes uncomfortable to use after a few minutes.

yeah right, but its fine once you get used to it.. and larger S-pen (and balanced wieght) will be more comfortable for taking long note or drawing, thats why I love my old wacom pen

Samsung just released a fully unlocked Galaxy s7/edge a few weeks ago with ZERO bloatware, obviously it had all the google apps but none of the useless carrier apps, so I would expect this version to come to the note 7.

Your mind was clearly lagging when you decided to make up an account just to post such a stupid comment. I'm sure you'll make an excellent addition to the comment section. /s

Your brain lag that's why you can't see the lags in Samsung phones then again that's to be expected afterall you are the finest example of samtards who gets mighty offended whenever someone said something that comes less than samsung is the greatest.

Your mind lags when you hear anyone preferring anything but the Apple products.

What did you expect from this sombre troll with third world mentality? The best way to keep yourself calm, just assume this sore creature doesn't exist here.

No different than you are about what you like...hmmm! Samsung's phones haven't been laggy since the S6. But it really doesn't matter what you think. The facts show you guys are stupid. Repeating a lie will never make it the truth. EVER!

Since neither my Note 4 nor my Note 5 lag, I doubt it. Any lag is in your defective brain.

I dunno, looks pretty good to me. What improvements would you suggest? (genuinely asking - not sarcastic) Looking at the renders, the only things I might change would be to make the metal band bulge slightly at the top and bottom, a la Note 4, and to shape the home button exactly like the S7 series phones to further unify them. Actually, I would make one more, but most people would think me crazy for this: I would make the top and bottom bezels slightly bigger. I think a tall phone always looks more pleasing to the eye (hence the iPhone's constant large forehead and chin) than a fat one, and the holding/usage ergonomics are relatively unaffected by tallness. Just my opinion.
