Future Galaxy Note S-Pens May Double As A Stand

S-Pen Stand

The Samsung Galaxy Notes are not only some of the most productivity oriented phones out there, but they’re also great for media consumption thanks to their large high resolution displays.  In fact, I would say that a good majority of buyers pick the Note series for media consumption rather than productivity.  Regardless of why you buy the Note, media consumption may become a bigger focal point if this latest patent is any hint.

A patent that Samsung had filed for earlier this year has surfaced and it details their plans to utilize the Note’s S-Pen as a stand for the Note.  This will be achieved by adding a hinge to the S-Pen.  Half of the pen will then be inserted into phone and locked in place, while the other half will act as the stand to keep your phone propped up.  Pretty neat idea in my opinion!

Of course, we can’t say for sure that this will come into fruition with this year’s Note 6 but it is possible.  One thing I did find interesting is that the device pictured in the patents bears a lot of resemblance to the Note 2.  Has Samsung really been working on this idea for that long?  Just one of the many things I wonder…
