Samsung working on the second S Pen stylus generation, to fool the screen it is touched with a finger
Samsung patent submitted before the USPTO reveals that the company might have already developed the second generation of its famed S Pen stylus for capacitive touchscreens. The first S Pen can be found on the Galaxy Note 5.3" phone, but the patent reveals many more features that might be coming for the next Note or tablets like the Galaxy Note 10.1 that might use it.

The next S Pen is bound to have NFC connectivity, and a built-in clip for voice communication, like the stylus on the Asus PadFone, which can be used as a headset for talks.

What's more, there will be a conductive ePen Grip rubbery material towards the tip, which will be sending micro-current from your body to the capacitive display, thus fooling it that it is touched with a finger, and eliminating or reducing the lag that is often associated with these styli.
