Samsung to release a new C-Pen stylus with Bluetooth connection and a ball-point end

Unlike the S-Pen stylus, which only works with Samsung's Galaxy Note devices, the C-Pen is supposed to work with the Windows-powered Galaxy TabPro S tablet, while doubling as a regular ball-point pen for practitioners of the ancient art of writing on paper. It's also said to work with regular smartphones and tablets as well, although we can't know for sure whether all its functionality will be available without dedicated software.
The listing says the new C-Pen connects via Bluetooth 4.0 LE, features 'Back' and 'Erase' buttons, and detects 1,024 levels of pressure. That’s half the pressure sensitivity offered by the S Pen on the Galaxy Note 4 and 5, but it still allows for precise input. The C-Pen's battery life also gets quoted, at 162 hours of use, which is an impressive figure that varies depending on how much the stylus gets used.
The accessory is priced at $66 (€59.90), which is a bit higher than what Samsung accessories usually cost, but it falls in line with the Galaxy Tab Pro S's high price tag. It’s not yet available for purchase, but it will probably get released in the coming weeks.

But will it work with Note5? I'd pick it up in heartbeat.

Why would you need another stylus?

I wish they worked with the S7 and S7 Edge. That's my only thing. I don't want a note sized phone but I want the s-pen that I can carry separately. Samsung please include your wacom enabled screens on the S8 and S8 edge. People can buy their own s-pen for it.

Pricing for an accessory is kinda steep. Even if it is priced lower than its competitors

The reason the pricing is sort of high is because there really are no competitors because it is designed for the TabSPro

Cool product. Why when browsing from my air 2 your website freezes? Go to other sites. No problem. Like 3 days now. Starting to think this is a dangerous website to visit. Let me see what the awesome Android Central guys are doing?
