    As is to be expected there will be lots of improvements coming to the Note 7. Samsung has decided to focus on improving the S-Pen experience this go round. Samsung's mobile chief Koh Dong-jin told Korean press, "We have improved Note functions this time, upgrading software for user convenience.". While nothing was mentioned about it you can be sure that Samsung has figured out a way for the S-Pen to not get stuck if you put it in backwards!

    Wow, must be a REALLY slow news day when you post articles with absolutely no substance or new information. Why was this posted again?

    Thanks @DroidModderX... For me, this is the first post I have seen announcing improvements for the N7 s-pen. Given that the N7 has not been released yet and I'm excited to know what will be different about it compared to my N5, I welcome the heads up and look forward to what the s-pen improvements might be.

    Sure it's not groundbreaking news, but I think that picture alone speaks volumes. If that's the true design, you can clearly see that there's no way you'll be able to insert the S-pen incorrectly. That's a win in my book!

    I can't wait until they incorporate a "real" pen into the S pen... far to many times I need a pen and all I have is my phone....

    Isn't the picture above just a close up shot of the Note 5 pen?

    It's a close up of an admission that they goofed on the previous version that could be put in backwards, and for most, never to be removed again, at least not without damaging pen and/or phone.
