Galaxy Note S Pen with a camera? Probably not happening

Including a camera in the stylus and producing a phone with a beautifully seamless screen could be an extra selling point. Adding a camera to an external peripheral such as the S-Pen with a button used to control the zoom could get around this issue.
Why it matters: For some people, the S-pen stylus that comes with Samsung's Galaxy Note phones is one of the handsets' best elements, and there's a chance it could gain extra functionality.
The stylus would be capable of sending the imaging signals or data to the connected device via a wire as well as wirelessly, possibly through Bluetooth.
Including extra lenses for an optical zoom on a smartphone is impractical because they take up additional space. Samsung explains in the patent that smartphones typically employ digital zoom, but in the process of enlarging an image via a program or algorithm, the overall quality of the images takes a hit. The S Pen would be large enough to accommodate a more powerful sensor compared to what resides on the smartphone's back panel and would allow Samsung to implement features such as optical zoom.
Samsung earlier this week acquired a patent for an intriguing S Pen featuring its own a camera. With a literal selfie stick, there would be no need for the camera and, therefore, no need for any notch or punch hole cutout. The illustrations in the patent suggested that a camera sensor would be fit in the upper chamber of the S Pen with the optical zoom being controlled by a separate button. Spotted by PatentlyMobile, the patent mentions that the S Pen is meant to an upcoming Galaxy Note device, but doesn't specify which one. This could be ideal when taking notes during a meeting or lecture, allowing users to snap a photo of a presentation slide via the S-Pen to convert it to text, much like Google Lens and Microsoft's Office Lens.
