We are already into 2017 and the Galaxy S8 may not seem as far away from being launched as it seemed to be just a month ago. Today, a new report/leak has come into attention, courtesy of an unlikely source; allaboutwindowsphone.com. What we can see via the leaked image is a software running on a PC, called Samsung Desktop Experience. There are three visible tabs on the right, marked as,
2. External Monitor
3. Keyboard & Mouse
As some of you have already figured out, the entire setup looks very similar to Windows Continuum Workspace experience, reserved for Windows smartphones only. As the Continuum program allows a Windows smartphone user to experience PC-like functionality, we are guessing that the Samsung Desktop Experience will also bring something similar to the Galaxy S8.
The only issue might be that the S8 will run on Android, which is a completely different OS from Windows altogether. Nevertheless, I am sure that Samsung will hire the right developers to bridge the gap in-between the two operating systems in order to deliver a smooth experience to the users. The ability to properly use a keyboard and a mouse could lead to windowed apps, true multitasking and better productivity on the Galaxy S8 in certain situations. Are you excited for his one?
