    Are we going to see a stylus (S Pen) built-in to the S8 Plus?

    Doubt it otherwise there wouldn't be a need for the Note 8...

    I heard a rumour today that the code name for the Samsung Note 8 is “Baikal”. Which is apparently a very large lake.
    I do love the idea of the Galaxy S8 + having a built in stylus but think that may hurt sales of their Note 8 Flagship. Maybe they could sell the S-Pen separately for the S8 + model?

    I thought I read that it would be compatible, but not a built in slot. So you could buy one. The Note 8 will have a slot for an spen.

    Doubt it, they said they will continue the note line, that there will be a note 8. But if the s8+ does get a stylus I wouldn't be against it as long as it had the same features as the note line.

    We won't see an S8 Plus Stylus because Samsung "confirmed" that the Galaxy Note 8 is in the works.

    I would think they would bring out the S-Pen with the S8+ because there are people out there probably scared to get the Note 8. Just a thought, hahahaha.

    Hahaha it's just a thought you know the Note 7 people that think the Note 8 will blow up, they can have an S-Pen with their S8+ so they don't have to get the Note 8, lol.

    Honestly, if Samsung includes S Pen or maybe N-Trig pen (or both) support, that it would give it a leg up. Samsung doesn't have to include the pen with the device. Just support it and then sell the pen separately. This seems to have worked for both Microsoft and Apple.

    If Samsung doesn't include S Pen support, that won't be a deal breaker for me. I had a Note II and a Note 10.1 a while back and I wasn't a fan of the S Pen. The pen didn't feel right to me and trying write on a small (5.5") screen was awkward. I really like how Microsoft designed its Surface Pen. It feels like a real pen and is much more comfortable to use.

    I just like the specs and the direction Samsung is going with its Galaxy S line of phones.

    I've heard rumours it would be an accessory, I don't believe it, been checking out cases on Amazon and haven't found any that integrate a place to store it

    I was hoping they would support it. The Note 7 pen was great, very comfortable and easy to use. I still have two. Oh well. They would be nuts to include it in the 8+ because there will be a Note 8 but to make it useable (and sell us one for a lot of money no doubt) would be great.Will believe it when I see it.

    I agree the Note line makes too much money for Sammy to have a S+ with an S pen. I have heard that it could have note capabilities and that the S pen could be sold as an accessory but those were January rumors. I haven't heard of anything since then.

    I don't think they will include the pen with the 800 features they already have included for the launch...Might be too many...

    The S-Pen will always be the Note line feature.. With out it the Note would now be a S Series phone! The Note line was always their best phone with the best Specs, That is up until the S6 Edge + and Note 5 came out and was the same phone other than the Note 5 had the S-Pen.. I miss the days when I couldn't wait until the New Note was released... Now soon as I see the new S Series phone, I know exactly what the upcoming Note will be..

    I wish they combined the "S" and "Note" series. Why not offer the s-pen as an option to the S8?

    Frankly, I've always had the Note series, and ended up with an S7 Edge after the N7. I don't like the S7 Edge, and don't know if I can wait for the new Note 8 (I really don't like the S7 Edge!!).

    I suspect a lot of previous "Note" users will end up with the S8+, just because the N7 has been such a fiasco, and it's been such a long time waiting for a replacement.
