Could a Windows 10 Mobile-powered Samsung Galaxy S8 be salvation for the Windows Phone? Photos hailing from China show off an alleged Samsung Galaxy S8 phone running Windows 10 Mobile and while they’re fake, true Windows Phone enthusiasts can’t help but imagine how their favorite mobile platform would work if Samsung decided to release such a wild project.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is widely considered to be the best smartphone of 2017, especially due to its attractive hardware. This is probably the reason why Microsoft sells the Samsung Galaxy S8 in its own stores and why Samsung agreed to pre-install some of Redmond’s apps on the device, including OneDrive, Office, and Skype.

Compatibility issues

Unfortunately, a Samsung Galaxy S8 would not be able to run Windows 10 as the device’s Snapdragon processor is not supported by Microsoft’s OS. The company only supports this chip for Windows 10 on ARM.

As we already said, you currently have the possibility of purchasing a Samsung Galaxy S8 with Microsoft software, but it will still run Android.

If there were truly the possibility that the Samsung Galaxy S8 could run Windows 10 Mobile, it would be a huge win for Microsoft — but we’re not even sure if such a thing could be able to save the platform. A lack of devices was not the only issue of the Microsoft’s mobile ecosystem: more important issues include a lack of developer support, a lack of apps and the slow pace at which the company rolls out updates.
