Samsung reminds us why we love handwriting in Note 4 teaser

Samsung’s next Unpacked event helps kick-off IFA 2014 on September 3, and though the event may hold a few surprises, we’ve been able to develop a pretty good sense of what to expect. While Samsung’s holding a few cards close to its chest, it hasn’t exactly been shy about suggesting that we’re going to see the Galaxy Note 4 make its debut. Just like it did last August when teasing the Note 3 launch, its invitations have been spotted employing “note the date” language, and the presence of an Air Command menu on that most recent invite helps drive the point home even harder. Now it’s moving on to video for its latest Note 4 teaser, this time playing-up the importance of handwriting in our lives.

Granted, the S Pen is useful for a whole lot more than the written word, giving Note users access to the aforementioned Air Command menu, affording them much higher-precision touch input than the rest of us will ever hope to enjoy with our stubby fingertips, and making document mark-up a snap. But yes, the S Pen lets you take written notes, too, and as far as Samsung’s concerned, that’s just the thing the youth of the world needs to keep them from getting lost in a tangled web of keyboards, losing touch with the very personal connection to the written word that only handwriting delivers.

Will the Note 4 herald the arrival of a handwriting renaissance? Probably not, but we’re anxiously awaiting its launch all the same. Twelve days and counting!
