Default UltraSonic SPen?

Not sure where else to put it, but I think the new spen technology in the works for the note 4 is already included in the S5. I was looking through the values in the arrays.xml from the secsettings.apk and found this little string:

<string-array name="ultrasonic_range_entries">
<item>@string/ultrasonic_long</item>
<item>@string/ultrasonic_middle</item>
<item>@string/ultrasonic_short</item>
</string-array>
<string-array name="ultrasonic_range_values">
<item>2</item>
<item>1</item>
<item>0</item>
</string-array>

Just an interesting find considering they hadn't even got the patent for it or even clearance to use it by the time our phone was released.

Samsung is lazy. They make software that works through several of their current phones and is turned on or off as needed for that model. This probably just means that the Note 4 will be released with the same version of software.

I realised that a while ago. The weirdest part is they throw code in for a phone that may not even exist and then just leave the code there. Just doesn't make sense in my mind.
