    I could care less for notches and punch holes so the selfie cam in the SPen needs to happen. I don't take many selfies, use facial or iris scan so this is a win for me.

    What do you all think?

    BGR: Samsung has a brilliant Galaxy Note design idea that would ‘kill’ the notch and punch-hole cameras.

    Not to sound pessimistic, but do you think Samsung will actually see this?

    We know companies build prototype and tries out ideas which is why rumors exist of unannounced units that mag never see the light of day.

    Lol I know they probably won't but at least it gets the word out. Plus just curious how everyone else feels about this feature.

    I can actually see a lot of use for something like this, especially for DIY'ers. I could use this to peek inside some of my HVAC ducts, or if I'm working on my car and drop a bolt in the engine bay and same directly see it. That is assuming it includes a live video feed to the phone.

    IMO it's sounds gimmicky but who knows it might turn out to be a hit.

    Yes, great point! Definitely great uses for this.

    Not happening. The s pen would have to be the size of the tab s4's to fit in a camera module.

    Lol...like my flexible borescope I check for cylinder wear or valve with carbon on engines.


    Especially direct injection engines that get carbon build up faster.

    There is no chance for placing a camera in s pen. we can't a take a live focus from that module and we can't get clear images.

    So, you don't take many selfies... but you want a selfie cam that sounds like a creepier/shadier portable peeping-tom-weapon-of-choice feature since it's in a tiny, portable stylus? OK...

    Wow. talk about putting words in someone's mouth. I don't take many selfies so I'd rather have them implement it in a way that would forego using a notch or punch hole. But OK if that's how your mind works.

    Or can you? You'd never know. Anything is possible these days.

    Pretty much. If you can get a live image on your watch via BT from the phone's camera and this year's S-Pen has BT, sure, you can get that transmitted to the phone.

    I think that's quite the conclusion to jump to. There's plenty of other, non-perverted, uses for a camera like that.

    I'm not saying there isn't, but it just takes one for these things to be banned, just like what happened with the short-lived Google Glasses in plenty of public places. Plus until the latter clarification (that placing the camera in the pen would remove the need for the tear drop/punch hole) it just sounded like the OP was claiming not do selfies but excited about a selfie camera.

    Yep, anything is possible in these days. But, though it's a first generation we will face lots of issues right. None of the third party companies has announced this type of module.

    Nice idea. I'm 50/50 on this one. Concept is great, Samsung pulling it off is another. The phone would have to be much bigger and so would the spen.
