Which Phone Will Turn Into A Real PC? Samsung S8 Or Surface Phone?
A leak reported from sources said that a new feature of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 - like desktop experience, would let users use windowed apps on a big screen using a keyboard and mouse, as we heard it first from Microsoft. The company will also turn its upcoming much-awaited Surface phone into a PC, as well all know the 'Continuum'.
Microsoft amazed everyone with Continuum for phones last year, a feature of Windows 10 that allows phones turn into a PC. Continuum makes use of Qualcomm chipsets and also Windows 10's new universal apps to scale from a phone screen up into a monitor, including features that would really make it feel like a full-blown PC. Moreover, it might look like a PC, you can't currently run apps like Chrome or Photoshop, and it's dependent on developers making universal apps.
Microsoft is making Continuum a lot more powerful next year, thanks to desktop apps. Samsung would not be the first Android company to mimic this feature, with Motorola introducing OneCompute in June 2016. The Galaxy S8 is said to add new features including a major one that it reportedly seems to have borrowed from Apple which is ditching the headphone jack and having wireless ear pods as an alternative accessory. The device is also expected to give the physical home button a miss. Well, Samsung is really trying to mirror major features from it's biggest Rival, Apple, and Microsoft.
