Samsung to allow newer Galaxy handsets to integrate with its Windows 10 tablet

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.
