Samsung to allow newer Galaxy handsets to integrate with its Windows 10 tablet
Back in January Samsung unveiled its Windows 10 powered tablet, the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S. It is the first device with the Galaxy name that is powered by Microsoft's operating system. According to a leaked placeholder, when released, the Galaxy TabPro S is going to be able to play nice with a Samsung Galaxy S6 or newer model. With a feature tagged "Galaxy Continuity," you will be able to integrate your handset with the slate.

To do this, you will have to install an app  called "Flux D." Samsung is considering having the app pre-installed on the Galaxy TabPro S. Through this app, the phone will be able to connect to the tablet via Bluetooth. Once a connection is established, users will be able to unlock and login to their tablet using a "tagging gesture of your Samsung fingerprint capable mobile device." More useful to some will be the ability to receive and respond to notifications sent to your Galaxy smartphone from the Galaxy TabPro S.

A report published today reveals that Samsung is going to release a Bluetooth enabled stylus for the tablet. The Samsung Bluetooth-C Stylus for the Galaxy TabPro S was listed on the website of a German retailer, with a model number of EJ-UW700. Priced at the equivalent of $66 USD, the accessory will work with other tablets and smartphones, but is optimized for the Galaxy TabPro S. The listing states that the stylus, which uses Bluetooth 4.0 LE and comes with an eraser button, will be available starting March 31st.

Probably the only Samsung device to get timely updates, since Microsoft will update it.

Not really. Even if MicroSoft realises updates quickly, Sammy still got it's TouchWiz interface and additional features to intergrate, hence retarding the updates, just like on Android.

I was refering to TouchWiz features. Am I wrong?

Or are you saying some Samsung Apps and services won't be found in their Windows 10 devices?

Those update through the Windows Store and are independent of the OS. Beauty of every Windows PC...

Maybe one or two, you can see one in the article LOL. But windows updates don't depend on apps. It's a closed source OS; So even if Samsung wants, it can't delay updates or put touchwiz on it.

There are no friends on PA unless you are fanboy of any brand

Wow. So I must be a fan of a certain brand in order to be friends with some else?

This sounds hectic.

Windows version of the stupidly gimped 2015 MacBook, pointlessly lacking useful ports, especially storage expansion.

Either way, this app would have no problem working on ANY Windows 10 Tablet/Laptop/Desktop PC, but just like Lenovo's awesome Write-Anywhere software, it's greedily restricted to 1 particular type of device...

Providing exclusive stuff to your devices is not greedy. Tomorrow you'll blame adobe for not providing you photoshop for free, since it can be installed on any windows 10 PC.

They could always demand a price for it, that's what Adobe does, not restrict it to Adobe hardware...

It isn't only about money. Sometimes, OEMs keep their innovations to themselves, in order to gain more user base. I mean, lure in some crowd with that exclusive feature offered.
Just like how Apple does with their iOS operative system and services.

It's not being greedy.

It might not be exclusive to Samsung laptops/tablets

Samsung has SideSync which allows you to connect Windows or Mac PCs to Samsung phones

So yeah, they extract price for it. The price equal to their laptop.

Come on, a lot of companies do it. Nvidia doesn't go sharing their software to AND, or vice versa. Dell doesn't share their exclusive display suite installed in their XPS line.

It's just making your product look better, through unique experiences.

The difference is those are driver software for the hardware components, whereas, like Lenovo's Writeh Anywhere software, this is GUI software that the user will continue to see and interact with.

But I get your point, it's no more greedy than what the competition is already doing.

This is in consideration since it can use the razor core to boost it's gaming abilities

I don't think it can. For that you need a full speed thunderbolt 3 connector, and an AMD GPU ( nvidia should release the drivers soon too)

Am I the only one concerned about the fact that this thing will drain the data plan on your phone because it will use it as a hotspot whenever it wants?

This is the only Windows tablet worth getting. Integration with Android Galaxy devices is a key success for the modern age. Android will eventually takeover windows in a few years.

Well, about the last thing... I have bad news for you... But it is true, windows should integrate better with android, it is already a necessity.

Can we just get a full blown Windows 10 phone without the junk apps from Google store. It'll be the first true phablet that can replace laptops.
