Samsung is getting ready to announce the Galaxy Note 4 at IFA 2014 in Germany early next month, and the company on Friday released a teaser video that highlights one of the iconic features of the Galaxy Note series and its advantages – the S Pen stylus.

Each Galaxy Note phablet model to date has come with its own built-in stylus, a characteristic not shared by any other Samsung flagship phone. The short 75-second teaser ad focuses on the Galaxy Note’s stylus as a device that offers a unique ability to take handwritten notes on your smartphone.

“Handwriting is extremely important,” Samsung wrote on YouTube. “However, this crucial act is fading away in today’s digitalized world. So Samsung Galaxy Note introduced the S Pen to remind us how much handwriting means to us. After all, those things that we love the most should continue to stay.”

It’s not clear whether the S Pen ad has anything to do with the imminent arrival of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, the first iPhone model that will compete directly against a Galaxy Note phablet. However, given Steve Jobs’ well known feelings about styluses, we feel pretty confident that the 5.5-inch iPhone won’t have its own stylus.

Samsung’s new video follows below.
