According to a patent first spotted by Patently Mobile, which was filed in February 2017 and granted yesterday, the stylus would be able to wirelessly send any images back to the phone or tablet, potentially making use of the Bluetooth support that was added with the Note 9’s S Pen stylus.

Samsung’s patent specifically mentions that the stylus’ camera includes an “optical zooming function.” Detaching the camera from the phone would also give you more flexibility with how you take your photographs — allowing you to take them from higher or lower vantage points while using the phone’s display as a viewfinder.

There’s no guarantee that this feature will ever make it to a future product, but industry experts say it is very possible that the concept will feature in future products. As OEM companies face weak sales, they will need eye-catching new features to revamp their businesses.
