Leaked Slide Shows Continuum Like Desktop Connectivity For Samsung Galaxy S8
Microsoft’s Surface Phone has managed to generate quite a lot of hype lately. Leaks so far suggest that the device will take a rather different approach to the flagship equation. We’ve heard support of features like Continuum and x86 support to make it on the flagship smartphone. They’re expected to give Microsoft a particular edge, especially as other manufacturers do not have platforms as advanced as Redmond’s. However, now, new information has come to light. It suggests that Samsung might bring similar features on the Galaxy S8. How? Take a look below to find out more.
Leaked Slide Suggests Galaxy S8 Will Feature Continuum Like Connectivity At Launch
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been a regular feature of the rumor mill. Courtesy of numerous sources, we have a fair idea of what to expect on the device. In fact, as is the case with other flagships as well, leaks which occur closer to a launch date mostly tend to corroborate earlier information. However, today, the Galaxy S8 has surprised us. Samsung is expected to try its best to differentiate the device in terms of specifications and features.
To that end, a lot of new features will make it on the device next year. It’ll feature a dual camera, an iris scanner, a virtual home button, an edge to edge screen and 6GB of RAM to boot, according to the rumor mill. However, that won’t be the end of things. Today, a rather interesting slide has surfaced. Its source claims that the slide is part of Samsung’s launch presentation for the Galaxy S8. Take a look.
Folks over at AAWP have stumbled across an interesting leak today. It shows an alleged Samsung Galaxy S8, connected to a desktop platform. This provides Microsoft’s Continuum like connectivity for the Samsung flagship. Samsung has been rumored to take a good software approach for the Galaxy S8. We’ve heard rumors of an all new virtual assistant termed ‘Bixby’ for the device. Now, with desktop connectivity, the S8 is appearing to be a complete package.
Of course, enabling such a feature will bring a host of new complications for Samsung. For starters, Microsoft has the edge with the Windows platform when enabling Continuum on Windows mobile. How does Samsung plan to ‘port’ the Galaxy S8’s mobile operations on a desktop? Alongside the display, you can also see a wireless keyboard and a mouse, which are connected to the phone. Sounds interesting. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned for the latest.
