According to a leaked image a few days ago, the Galaxy S8 might be powerful enough to have a standalone desktop mode of its own. Connect the phone to an external monitor, and you end up with an Android-based desktop:
If the feature sounds familiar, that’s because Windows already tried it with Windows 10. But Windows is not Android, so Microsoft’s Continuum never really took off.
Samsung is yet to confirm anything, so while we wait for an official announcement that would confirm such a hot feature for the Galaxy S8, Hungarian blog Androbit decided to create a better concept image to show what the Galaxy S8’s desktop user interface might look like:
We’re looking at a Windows-like environment made entirely of Samsung’s version of Android. The apps found on the Galaxy S8 will be able to take advantage of the bigger display, although this is just a concept. It’s unclear whether Samsung will also offer Windows-like multitasking.
What’s known so far is that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip that’s going inside the Galaxy S8 will be a lot more powerful than its predecessor. The chip is even able to run a full-fledged Windows 10 build and Win32 desktop apps, [I]SamMobile[/I] reminds us, which means it should be able to support a desktop-like Android experience. It’s up to Samsung to really go for it.
Damn if this actually does work,I feel it is double edged sword cause what will stop the same consumers of such high end devices going for a windows phone with already unified their software resources…and windows is already ahead in this field so the consumers jumping into this market isn’t more of a leap but less of a stroll.Oh wait android apps are easier to crack(compared to apple and microsoft- talking about their store apps) so that goes for it.These are those difficult decisions CEOs have to make join a market you are too late and struggling to make by(unifying software experience)or go another way that won’t put u in direct competition.
Same here atakama niko na S6 edge ma S4 n moto X been with me through thick and thin and still looking brand new…my personal satisfaction plus nimeziweka nuogat os sweet christmas na s6 haina hata hopes through OTA
