Samsung’s S Pens offer a digital writing experience.

Moreover, the S Pen does not require a battery to function.

Transfers between the connected devices are seamless, and enable users to stay up to date without sacrificing data security or efficiency. Combining powerful, PC-level performance with the signature convenience of the S Pen, Samsung’s Galaxy Book 2-in-1 device is less of a tablet and more of a highly portable personal computer.
