South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung won’t pack its upcoming Galaxy S IV smartphone with S Pen functionality, although previous reports on the matter suggested it might do so.

According to a recent article on DDaily, the handset will lack the functionality, though it will keep the home button from previous models.

However, some changes related to the available buttons will also be made, as the back one is expected to be featured to the left of the handset’s bottom, and not to the right as on Galaxy S III.

Overall, the upcoming Galaxy S IV handset will sport the human-centered design as its last year predecessor, though only a minimal one.

The news site also notes that the smartphone will sport a gesture-based non-contact user interface, just as some of the previous rumors suggested.
