Samsung enhancing S Pen experience with Penvatars
Samsung Galaxy Note owners will be familiar with the little circle (pointer) that appears when the S Pen is brought near to the screen. Until now it has been purely functional, but now Samsung want to spice up the S Pen experience with the introduction of Penvatars.
Using a play-on-words – Penvatar rather than Avatar – this new feature by Samsung allows Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge users to change the pointer from a bland circle to a more interesting character, even a Marvel super hero.
It is being reported that Penvatars will only be available on the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge.
It is being reported that Penvatars will only be available on the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge, and there is no word on whether Samsung will also add support for the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note tablets.
Samsung has made the announcement during CES and it probably won’t be too long before they will become available.
What do you think? Good idea or gimmick?
