Samsung keeps on adding new capabilities to the S Pen of its Galaxy Note line each year. Last year's Galaxy Note10 series came with a stylus that added support for Air actions while its predecessor introduced an S Pen that allowed users to control the phone's camera via Bluetooth.

On August 5, when the company is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note20 series at its Unpacked event, a fresh capability could make its way to the handset's S Pen that will let users turn the stylus into a pointer, just like how a computer mouse works. According to a tweet by Jimmy Is Promo, the Galaxy Note20's S Pen will act as a pointer to allow for navigating around the user interface or highlighting an area, for example.

Users may also have the option to customize the pointer’s speed, set the pointer color, and use it as an alternative to a laser pointer for slideshow presentations. In addition, the feature appears to include an option for adding a trail to the pointer and changing its size.

A more recent revelation by Jimmy Is Promo also showed that the S Pen will swap location with the phone's bottom speaker, which means it will be placed on the left side of the USB-C port instead of right where it used to be in the older versions of the Galaxy Note. More features of the Galaxy Note20 series will be unveiled next month.
