Samsung Patent Reveals Plan To Turn S Pen Into A Transforming Kickstand

By 03:03 Sat, 31 Jul 2021 Comments

The touchclassy screen killed the stylus, but the Samsung Galaxy Note made it popular again. Patent filings reveal Samsung has a recent function for its S Pen - a kickstand.

The schematics show a stylus that has a hinge at its middle. The concept is you pull out the S Pen half way and bdiscontinue it to shape a kickstand. This locks the stylus into place. Straightening the stylus unlocks it so it can be put back in or pulled out completely.

The patent was filed in the third quarter of 2015, too late for the Note5, but perhaps the Galaxy Note6 will bring the design to life.
