Samsung Could Break the Wall between Android and PC with Galaxy S8

January 4, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We have been coming across umpteen numbers of rumors associated with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone. Most of them have already brought out the path-breaking innovations Samsung could introduce, but it seems like those are never-ending.

The South Korean manufacturer is now said to be upbringing a real game-changer in its upcoming flagship, and that’s with the introduction of a new feature called Samsung Desktop Experience. As per the description from the leaked screenshot, the new feature will be introducing a new mobile workspace, which sounds similar to Microsoft’s Continuum.

Continuum, which was released last year, let users enjoy a desktop Windows experience by pairing up their smartphone devices to a monitor and mouse using a connecting dock. Samsung Desktop Experience too will work on the same idea. However, letting users enjoy a desktop experience using Android gives it an edge over the Microsoft counterpart.

Besides, Samsung Desktop Experience will also apparently offer multitasking experience through multiple windows. Continuum was introduced with support for only one window at a time, although it should be changing this year.

Continuum is still struggling to offer its users what it promised before its launch. And if Samsung manages to make the new rumor fruitful, it could take a big lead over Microsoft in bringing out a single solution for mobile and desktop computing.

As with other rumors, the Galaxy S8 will be housing the home-grown Exynos chipset for the versions that will be sold outside of US. The US versions will continue housing chipsets from Qualcomm, and will feature the Snapdragon 835 SoC that will arrive with 10nm process technology. The chipset is said to be more than 25% faster than the previous flagship chipset from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 821 SoC.
