Rumors are saying Samsung will suspend or ax the Note phatablet line and instead will bring with the Galaxy S8 Plus an S Pen not inside the device but as an accessory. If the device will have a 6 inch display the S Pen might have then a good use.
Is not clear is Samsung is going to charge you some dollars for the S Pen as an accessory or if it will arrive packed in the Galaxy S8 box at no cost. This last would be a great introduction promo.
This news doesn`t mean the Galaxy Note 8 will not be launched in 2017 since the company hinted the new Note for next year.
