Samsung demos Microsoft PC features at Unpacked 2019

Samsung and Microsoft have partnered up to bring new features to the PC and Note 10 lineup.


Samsung dropped quite a bit of information about their plans for the future during this August’s Galaxy Unpacked. Perhaps one of the most intriguing announcements—for those who work on the go at least—was the reveal that Microsoft and Samsung have upped their partnership to bring even more syncing features to the Samsung Galaxy lineup.

Revealed during today’s Galaxy Unpacked, The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series will work seamlessly with Microsoft Windows to make syncing your work between your phone and your computer even easier than ever. During the presentation, Samsung showed off how easy it will be to connect your phone to your PC and then transfer files between the two.

It was interesting to watch as the system appears to make it much easier to handle your emails, notes, photos, and more thanks to the interconnectivity that the Note 10 and 10+ bring. Based on what they showed off, it looks like connecting your phone to your PC launches a program called Samsung Dex, which basically acts as an additional desktop environment on your desktop. This allows you to easily work without your phone from the comfort of your PC, so you can answer texts, emails, save photos, and so on.
