Wacom’s Pen Technology Extends Integration into Galaxy Ecosystem, with S Pen for Samsung Galaxy Note20 series and Tab S7 series

August 31, 2020 (Tokyo, Japan) – As Samsung Electronics introduced a new suite of power devices on August 5, it was evident that Wacom’s digital pen technology is more tightly integrated into the Galaxy Ecosystem than ever, putting extra power at your fingertips with the S Pen for Galaxy Note20 Ultra, Galaxy Note20, Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+.

From scribbling notes during a meeting to remote controlling your presentations, the S Pen for the Galaxy Note 20 series has evolved to become the ultimate productivity companion. It also offers the most realistic note-taking experience for those longing for a pen-on-paper feel.

Tapping into Samsung’s AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology that enables more accurate coordinate prediction, the Galaxy Note20 series and S Pen duo offer great handwriting and drawing experiences, along with significantly reduced latency (80% less than its predecessor).

The Air actions’ gesture controls make navigating your phone fast and easy no matter which apps are in use. Using the gesture controls is simple. While holding the S Pen’s side button, a gesture in this shape (>) pulls up recently used apps. This shape (^) brings you back to the home screen and this shape (<) signifies a backward action. The V-shape (v) runs Smart select. Shaking the S Pen lightly activates Screen Write automatically, which instantly captures a screenshot and displays annotation tools for the S Pen.

Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ are versatile tablets that combine the power of a PC, the flexibility of a tablet and the connectivity of a smartphone, while offering seamless videoconferencing, fast downloads, and virtually lag-free streaming, thanks to Samsung’s 5G expertise. The S Pen lets you get more things done in less time with these devices.

The collaboration with Wacom's ecosystem partner, Celsys,Inc., has also brought about the Android version of Celsys' Clip Studio Paint software, the artist’s app for drawing and painting. The app is pre-loaded(*) on the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ and can be installed on the Galaxy Note20 Ultra and Galaxy Note20, successfully bringing a truly creative experience to the world of GALAXY.
(*) Pre-load supported in select markets. Clip Studio Paint can be downloaded from the Galaxy Store.

The Galaxy Note20 series and Tab S7 series is available in select markets from August 21, 2020.
