Samsung patents a possible notch-killer, may sneak a camera into the S Pen

The S Pen has always differentiated the Note series from other flagship smartphones, and each year Samsung has made it a little bit better.

After beta testing Android 9 with One UI on its Galaxy S9/S9+ and Note9 for a bit, it rolled out the stable version to the former on Christmas and updated its forecast for the latter to say it would land in January instead of February. True to its word, it didn't take more than a couple of days for this to happen.

Samsung's Android 9 Pie rollout has been rather swift.
