Now that 2017 is here, every Android fan is highly anticipating Samsung to launch its upcoming Galaxy S8 flagship. The South Korean company is expected to take the market by storm with its new flagship smartphone that’s rumored to be filled with innovative features, especially since Samsung needs to make up for the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco and win back its customer’s trust.
The internet is buzzing with rumors and leaked information surrounding Samsung’s upcoming flagship and right now rumor has it that Samsung is going to completely innovate Galaxy S8’s operating system by adding Microsoft’s Continuum feature. This might look like Samsung is copying Microsoft Windows Phone but this shouldn’t come as any surprise since the South Korean based tech giant has an infamous reputation for shamelessly copying designs. In fact, Samsung actually has a 132 page guide for its tech developers that shows them how to copy Apple’s iPhone.
You might be wondering why Continuum is so important, well it significantly improves the multi tasking functionality of any mobile handset by allowing users to connect mouse and keyboards to it. Samsung users will be able to seamlessly switch between their smartphone and PC platform at ease and even tether their devices directly to monitors.
This information was posted on a Windows Blog by Steve Litchfield, who stated that he received the leaked picture from a Samsung insider that he doesn’t want to name. Continuum looks like it’s still in the development phase but if this proves to be true, Samsung’s Galaxy S8 work space functionality will increase by a large margin. While this is still a rumor and it hasn’t been proven true, it’s great seeing that Samsung is trying to find new ways of enhancing their devices.
