With the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series launch being just around the corner, new reports regarding the lineup have been surfacing. The latest one reveals a few details regarding a supposed Microsoft Xbox optimization along with a new “real feel” S-Pen.
According to a WinFuture report, the South Korean tech giant is placing a lot of emphasis on its stylus for the smartphone. The new S-Pen will feature a response time lower than 9ms, to make the interface and writing smoother than before and feel closer to writing on paper. The company is also reportedly working with Microsoft to bring certain other features like OneNote synchronization and gesture commands as well.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will also be the first smartphone to feature optimizations for cloud gaming via Xbox Game Pass. In other words, the company is attempting to include Microsoft’s Project xCloud into the device. This means that 5G networking in the device will leverage built in game streaming framework to optimize games from different platforms to the handset.

For those unaware, Project xCloud is Microsoft’s counterpart of the Google Stadia game streaming service. In layman’s terms, Samsung is trying to make the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra into a pocket game console that might also be able to leverage the higher refresh rate in the device for improved gameplay and visual fidelity. While unconfirmed, this is also reinforced by Samsung’s latest tease for the Unpacked event 2020 on Twitter, which said “the power to play from anywhere” alongside game controller symbols in the short video.
