Latest Galaxy S8 leak hints at proper PC-like functionality

Samsung will certainly introduce several new features with the Galaxy S8 that help set it apart from the competition. If the latest Galaxy S8 leak is believed, the upcoming flagship might provide users with proper PC-like functionality courtesy of the Samsung Desktop Experience feature. From the looks of it, the feature will be similar to Windows Mobile’s Continuum which enables Windows smartphone owners to extend their experience to a monitor and use windowed apps with a keyboard and mouse.

Microsoft’s Continuum feature offers Windows smartphone owners with a full-fledged PC experience when they hook up the phone to a monitor via a dock. That’s not how it may be for the Galaxy S8 since it’s going to be on a completely different platform but it’s possible that Samsung might work with app developers, particularly those that develop productivity suites like Microsoft Office, on apps that take full advantage of the Samsung Desktop Experience and enable Galaxy S8 owners to run windowed apps that they can use with a keyboard and mouse on a monitor.

If this feature does make its way to the Galaxy S8 then Samsung’s new flagship will surely be a productivity powerhouse, allowing users to be more productive with true multi-tasking. Samsung has not yet commented on this report so there hasn’t been a confirmation or denial about this yet. Samsung is due to unveil the Galaxy S8 at a special event in New York City come April.

People call it bloat but fail to see the reason why Samsung offers technically the same as some of the google apps.They dont want to completely rely on Google software for everything in the future as well as present and because they actually have the funds to make it happen unlike 99% of the other android manufacturers,why wouldn’t they? Like stated previously by another commentor google and samsung each have their good/bad apps but Samsung has also recently started to make their apps available in playstore since some of their newer offering might not come with the Samsung apps pre-installed.

Please Samsung… Bring at least one 4″ phone in A series. Currently I’m owning a Galaxy S7 edge and undoubtebly its the best phone I’ve ever used… bt i wish Samsung could bring something small with the premium built… May be it won’t be a huge hit bt guys like me would always be just more than happy to own one as iphone se is loved for it’s compct size with top notch performance… i think Samsung too has a great scope.. Specialy with it’s sleek design and super amoled display and the latest addition ip 68 ratings… Hope you… Read more »

If you like small premium phones then why S7 Edge with a 5.5″ display but not the smaller flat S7 with a 5″ display? You don’t expext a 4″ phone to have an edge screen anyway, or do you?

Samsung apps are great. Samsung Music, s planner, samsung internet are way better and faster than their Google counterparts.

I only wish they would update stuff like mail, gallery and planner through the store as well instead of firmware only

I bought the s3, s4, note 4, s6 edge.
I’m all excited for the new s8. But if it exceeds 750 euros i’m out. Even 750 is to much. I’ll just stick to the A series. By the specs that are presented its more than enough. Just my opinion.

They said that the S8 will be more expensive than the S7, but the S6 edge+ even at 32GB is still more expensive than the S7 edge. It is likely then that they will match the S8 prices with that of the S6 edge+. the Edge+ was the most expensive flagship of 2015, more so than the limited release of the Note5. which equates to around €750 or £640

It would be nice to have this option as a native feature, but is something I’ve been doing since the Note 3 times. Now, with improve specs it would be awesome. Can’t wait for Note 8!
