Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Leak Suggests Stylus Will Let You Write Underwater

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

I know what you’re thinking. Where’s the rest of it? Don’t feel too aggrieved though. After all, this is the first time we’ve actually spotted a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 leak related to the new S Pen.

According to Mai Nguyên, the owner of a Vietnamese tech blog and electronics store, the Note 7’s stylus will let you write on the handset underwater, perfect for when you need to live blog your swim to the bottom of the Great Lake in the next Triwizard Tournament or post your final Instagram update after a shipwreck.

I jest, of course. The feature will come in handy in everyday situations, especially when it rains. The Note 7, like the S7 Edge, is expected to be waterproof, but the wet stuff typically prevents touchscreens from accurately responding to presses. It sounds like the new S Pen will overcome that.

The image also shows off the handset’s curved display, USB Type-C port, home button and ‘Blue Coral’ finish. It’s set to launch on August 2nd. [Facebook via PhoneArena]
