Samsung will launch new Windows laptops with a MacBook-like twist at MWC.

Something nasty is on the way: Samsung will present its new vision for ultra-connected gadgets at MWC 2022 later this month. With the release of the Samsung Galaxy S22, the company’s attention is shifting to its superb Galaxy Book laptop line – and the Apple-style features that will make them even more useful.

“With our soon-to-be-announced next generation Galaxy Book lineup that is set to transform the way people use their devices within their daily lives,” according to a Samsung blog post, “we will achieve three goals: a seamless experience across devices and operating systems, the combination of the best of Galaxy mobility powered by Intel, and peace of mind brought about through robust security.”

Samsung touts the experience of utilizing Microsoft programs across Galaxy devices, including laptops and phones, promising “even greater continuity” with the next Galaxy Book models for you to work, connect, and play.

Continuity is one of my favorite features on Apple gear since it essentially combines all of my devices into one large one. For example, I can use my iPhone 13 to sign documents on my MacBook Pro M1, scan documentation to archive on my Mac, or annotate pages on my desktop. There’s no need for additional software or drivers because it’s already embedded within the operating systems.

It’s wonderful, because it allows each of my devices to focus on what they’re excellent at while outsourcing what they’re not: try using your laptop’s camera as a document scanner to see why. So I’m quite interested in what Samsung is bringing to its PC notebooks; I’d want to see more people have access to these types of things.

The recently announced One UI Book 4, which seeks to give an uniform cross-device user experience on Samsung apps like the Samsung Gallery and Samsung Notes, is a significant element of Samsung’s objectives.

Samsung has no influence over either Windows or Android, so it’s taking the lead here, providing apps to both platforms that will be familiar regardless of which device you’re using. It’s only natural that it should take advantage of the chance to improve the experience while doing so.

I really like what Samsung has been doing recently: it’s going through a purple patch in terms of hardware and software design, and while it’s not the only company trying to deliver a consistent cross-device experience – Lenovo and Huawei, for example, are doing fantastic work – I believe the more the merrier.

It’s something Apple excels at with its Notes applications, as well as more powerful tools like Pages and Numbers: I’m used to transferring mobile papers to my Mac and vice versa, so I can vouch to its use. After all, the best tool for getting things done is the one you have on hand.
