Break it down-How does the S pen work? offers a nice explanation along with a link to video too

  • S pen pulls power from the device wirelessly
  • Electromagnetic field that provides power to the pen can also be used to calculate its position relative to the screen. This, along with information from the S Pen button and the nib on the end are what is used to determine what the user it doing with the S Pen.

  • Pressure sensitivity is built in the stylus
  • To summarize

    An electromagnetic field is generated from a circuit behind the screen. The S Pen picks this up and uses it to power itself and figure out its position relative to the screen. It sends this, along with information from the S Pen button and the nib at the end, back to the Note.

Edit: Video in linked post makes it clear ascend easy to understand
