Exactly one week ago, we passed along some exciting news from Twitter tipster Ice Universe about the S Pen accessory that will come in the box with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9
. The tweet said that the new S Pen is "worth the wait." Samsung has since focused on the S Pen by featuring it on the invitation it sent out for the Unpacked event being held on August 9th. At that event, the Galaxy Note 9 will be introduced.
According to Ice Universe, the new S Pen will be able to control music and a long-range self-timer. The most interesting part of the tweet says that the S Pen will also have a function related to Bluetooth that has nothing to do with the accessory being a pen. There is some speculation that the S Pen will double as a wireless Bluetooth speaker. If this pans out, you can expect a thicker S Pen for the Galaxy Note 9 because it will need to be battery powered.
We will know more on August 9th, but to whet your appetite, consider that this S Pen has reportedly gone through the biggest update in the history of the accessory. For many of you, the next Unpacked event can't get here soon enough.
