Samsung will soon launch Penvatars for the Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge
Samsung is about to make its S Pen experience on select Galaxy handsets a little bit more fun, as it’s launching what it’s calling Penvatars. These are small avatars that can bring your S Pen’s pointer to life whenever you hover the stylus above the display.

Samsung has teamed up with Marvel for the first set of Penvatars. Thus, you’ll get to see Iron Man, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, and other heroes from The Avengers on your Galaxy screen.

Unfortunately, Samsung isn’t saying when Penvatars will be available for download. In any case, we know that, for the beginning, only owners of the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge will be able to spice up their S Pen experience with these super (hero) pointers. 

Both the Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge use a new S Pen stylus - Samsung's best yet. Do you have any of the two devices? If yes, what do you think about these Penvatars that Samsung is getting ready to launch?

So, a cursor? Stuff like this is why people hate TouchWiz.

As long as it remains an optional download I think it's an excellent idea. It could provide some much-needed character to TouchWiz and I'm sure some people would like it.

It's just something to have or not have. What is wrong with you people sometimes. Hating Samsung for anything they do or don't must be in.

An invention for new advertising. Just what everyone was asking for. What if this became somewhat popular and they starting selling "packs" of them. It would be like a free to play game with micro transactions, minus the game.

What a bunch of clowns. You folks know you don't have to download the sh*t if you don't want to right? Nobody's forcing anything down ya'll throats. This constant whining is pathetic.

I did this with my note 2, I had to be rooted and then just flash the file, it was a little cool too.

I'll do the same thing I do with all of the other apps I download. If I don't like it I uninstal it. Not that difficult. But at least I keep an open mind and am willing to try new things before I judge them.

Let's see what it does first. At least it can be removed if I don't like it which is a good thing. Lovin' my Note 4.

More bragging rights for me and my Note 4. I can already see the dead stares from those who are jealous or not being able to understand the greatness of it. It's like going to 11.
