Samsung S Pen on the Galaxy S22 Ultra: Everything You Need To Know

The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G this year marked a special merge between two of Samsung’s hallmark collections – the productive expertise of the Note series and the epic camera capabilities of the S series, creating the most powerful experience ever in an Ultra smartphone, elevated further by being the first Galaxy-S device with a built-in S Pen. 

To be a master of productivity, the S22 Ultra 5G’s build was meticulously designed with a dedicated S Pen slot to empower users with the option of accessing S Pen features whenever inspiration comes knocking on their door. Sitting at a comfortable 3.04g with a tip diameter of 0.7mm, this S Pen is the most accurate one yet with a solid 2.8ms response time to create a super-natural writing experience.


Here is an overview of the most important functions that you have been able to use for several S-Pen generations: 

  • Create Note: Creates notes in a pop-up window without having to access "Samsung Notes" or another notes app. 
  • Smart Select: Selects an area using the S Pen and performs actions such as sharing or saving. 
  • Screenshot Note: Capture screenshots and annotate it with notes or a drawing. 
  • Live Message: Create and send your own messages with a background of your choice. You can record what you write or draw and save it as a GIF. 
  • Translate: Hold the S Pen over a word or snippet of text to translate what you've written. 
  • Bixby Vision: Uses Bixby Vision features to search for similar images, places, or info, or to recognize and translate text. 
  • Zoom In: Hold the S Pen over an area of the screen to zoom in.

The S Pen on the new Galaxy S22 Ultra enables users to maximize the note-taking experience through several key features, namely S Pen to Text, which completely rids the need for users to take notes on an external device. Instead, users can conveniently jot notes directly on their S22 Ultra with the S Pen and transform their handwriting into text. 

Taking measures to a new level, the S Pen introduces an even more streamlined experience to working on the S22 Ultra through Web Clipper, which allows users to easily extract and port a portion of the content they’re viewing directly to Samsung Notes, including links, photos, and messages from Samsung apps within the device. 

Whether for casual doodling or for executing serious work to perfection, the S Pen on the Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G enables users to experience true productivity by being an all-for-one package that is centered around empowering its users to achieve their fullest potential of working on a smartphone like never before. All this and more, only on the most powerful Ultra device in the Galaxy S Series.
