On top of that, the stylus comes with new Air Command functions, which includes Magnify and Translate, enabling users to zoom in on the screen or convert languages by just hovering the S Pen over the screen.

The body of Note 7 is IP68 certified water resistant, hence users can jot down their thoughts by using the S Pen, even when the screen gets wet.
