Samsung Galaxy S8 enthusiasts will have something to cheer about in the coming months. Galaxy S8 processor will be powerful enough to run the latest Windows 10 with no trouble according to the device chipset provider. Would this be enough to surpass existing smartphone in the market today and outclass incoming smartphone as well?
Since last year, Samsung Galaxy S8 have been one of the most anticipated devices in the market. Numerous reports about its design and specifications have been the hot subject of online news the past few months. The South Korean giant tech company formally introduces the Galaxy S8 during a media event in New York City last March 29.
Just as expected, Samsung Galaxy S8 unveils a significant design modification with an upgraded hardware over its predecessor the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Some of its new perky design feature includes a larger screen with curved sides, iris and face recognition and a docking station that permit the phone to use just like a personal computer.
But, one key spec on a smartphone device that consumers would like to know is its processor and Samsung Galaxy S8 have the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. And according to ZDNet, Qualcomm confirmed that a mobile Windows 10 PCs that is running on its ARM-based Snapdragon 835 system on chip (SoC) will be available in the fourth quarter of this year.
Qualcomm and Microsoft stated last December that an always-on mobile Windows 10 PCs based on ARM chips will be introduced this year. And now, the chipset manufacturer confirmed that the Snapdragon 835 processor of the Samsung Galaxy S8 will fully run the Windows 10 desktop. It will also run the universal Windows apps as well as the Win32 apps via an emulator.

With that, Samsung Galaxy S8 is definitely on the top of the smartphone list right now. For now, it can run the virtualized Windows 10 desktop on the phone using the Samsung Desktop Experience or DeX. But if Qualcomm plan will push through, the future of Android devices and other smartphones will be on the next level with the advancement of the said chipset.
