Samsung introduced Bluetooth support in S Pen with Galaxy Note 9 last year. The feature allowed S-Pen to function as a remote control for the phone allowing users to take photos and even use it to navigate a presentation via Samsung DeX. The stylus also supports several native and several third party apps. For instance, you can use the S Pen to play, pause and switch to next video on YouTube.

While Samsung is enabling S Pen based air gesture support, Google said its Pixel 4 will be the first phone to support radar-based motion sensing capabilities. Based on Soli chip, Pixel 4 will allow users to skip songs, snooze alarms, and silence phone calls, just by waving their hand. Google said it will further develop the air gesture feature to bring more and smarter capabilities.
