The scoop on Samsung’s Bluetooth C-Pen stylus
We heard whispers and rumors of Samsung’s new Bluetooth-enabled C-Pen stylus last year, but at the time there really just wasn’t anything to say about it except “Samsung is working on it.” Now, however, the retailer Cyberport has posted information about this fancy little device on their page, giving us a sneak peek into what exactly we can look forward to when it comes to the Samsung Bluetooth C-Pen, for use with the Windows-powered Galaxy Tab Pro S.
The C-Pen looks to be a long-living device with an eyebrow-raising battery life of 162 hours. While we’re sure that length of time will rise and fall based on how much action the device sees, it’s nevertheless a pretty stellar figure. As you may have assumed, the C-Pen connects through Bluetooth 4.0 LE. It has 1,024 levels of pressure, which may seem like a large number at a glance, but for perspective that’s roughly half as much pressure sensitivity the S Pen offers on modern Note smartphones.
The stylus comes with two buttons, back and eraser, and you can expect it to retail for about €60 ($66). That’s honestly a bit steep, but for the benefits Bluetooth offers, it might be worth forking over the dough.
No word yet on when the stylish little pen will be available for sale, but we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, what are your thoughts regarding the Samsung Bluetooth C-Pen?
