Samsung is the worldâ€™s largest smartphone manufacturer, but it also makes laptop PCs and tablets. However, the company has largely been cool on Windows 10, with only limited devices available for Microsoftâ€™s platform. That said, there seems to be a new Samsung Win10 device called the Galaxy Space in the pipeline.
Windows Latest reports on a Geekbench benchmark that shows an unannounced Windows 10 device created by Samsung.
According to the listing, the Galaxy Space will provide 8GB of RAM and have an eight-core processor with a clock speed rated at 2.84GHz. Geekbench results show a single core performance of 2011, with multi-core scored at 6047.
While little else is known about the device, it is safe to assume the Galaxy Space is a laptop. Yes, we would love a Samsung smartphone running Windows 10, but that simply is not going to happen. That said, there were reports years ago of a Galaxy S8 running the platform, but it didnâ€™t materialize.
With that in mind, the naming of the Galaxy Space may suggest Samsung is taking the product seriously. Galaxy is the companyâ€™s flagship branding that it uses across its smartphones, including the S and Note rangers. If Samsung is willing to give a laptop its name, it may suggest a genuine push in the PC market.
It is worth remembering Samsung is one of the few companies to have released a folding screen device. Sure, the Galaxy Fold is a smartphone and is a clear experiment, but Samsung is leader in folding screens.
We have already seen Lenovo release a folding screen laptop and it is logical Samsung could explore this space. Could the Galaxy Space be a foray into folding laptops, or will it be a more conventional Windows 10 device?
