Samsung has reportedly filed patent on a new feature called "Write on PDF" for its upcoming Galaxy Note 5 in the U.S.
The South Korean giant has filed patent application on 30 June, in the United States Patent and Trademark Office requesting the new feature. The patent says that this new feature is a "computer application software for mobile phones, smart phones, tablets computers, portable media players and handheld computers enabling users to annotate and save PDF documents, images and files."
Samsung's Screen Write is already a popular function on the Note experience allowing users to write on a screen, and save note or handwriting as a screenshot. At the moment, you have to activate Screen Write with the S-Pen, capture screenshot and then write on it.
The new Write on PDF feature has simplified the processor to write on screen. Users can now write on the screen directly, without need to take a screenshot or activate Screen Write feature. Instead, you have to just enable the Write on PDF in the Note 5 settings.
Earlier in June, the patent office also listed another interesting feature of the upcoming Galaxy Note 5. Samsung patented a new feature that ejects S-Pen (stylus) automatically when required.
The patent reveals that the auto-eject technology uses magnets inside smartphone as well as in the S-Pen. The magnets will snap firmly when the Stylus is inside the Note 5. To auto-eject, Samsung has used a simple technique by just reversing the polarization on magnets, which makes the device to pop up the S-Pen on its own.
The Note 5 releases the S-Pen until the user provides a special voice command or by gesture drawn on the display. As always dozens of rumors are abound online, including a Super AMOLED display with 2K or 4K resolution along with the company's upcoming very own Exynos 7422 chipset.
