Samsung have recently filed a patent for a new state of the art capacitive stylus with quite a few tricks rolled up its sleeves. The first is an embedded NFC chip that would make pairing with a device as easy as touching the two together. The second is a built-in headset like the stylus on the Asus PadFone, which can be used as a headset for talks.

What’s more, there will be a conductive ePen Grip rubbery material towards the tip, which will be sending micro-current from your body to the capacitive display, thus fooling it that it is touched with a finger, and eliminating or reducing the lag that is often associated with these styli.

While the patent certainly fits into Samsung’s current device strategy with the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 10.1, there is no guarantee that such a concept will ever see the light of day. Given the nature of what is described, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear a device of this sort announced over the coming months (maybe at Google I/O) who konows ?
