On 5 August, Samsung will present its new smartphone Galaxy Note at an event Unpacked available online. And as that date approaches, more is known about these new devices, thanks to the leaks and rumors circulating on the web. And this week, one of the rumors suggests a possible partnership between Samsung and Microsoft, this time around xCloud.
As a reminder, xCloud is a platform for cloud gaming (such as Stadia) that Microsoft is currently testing in beta. The launch of this platform is planned for the month of September, and the latter should allow to play xBox games on smartphones. According to an article by The Verge, which relays the German site WinFuture, 90 video games would be available on the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, via xCloud, thanks to the partnership between the two companies.
Of course, for the moment, this information is not official and because of this, caution is always necessary. However, it should be noted that this would not be the first time that there has been a partnership of this kind between Samsung and Microsoft. In 2019, Satya Nadella, boss of Microsoft, has even participated in the keynote presentation of the latest Galaxy Note, and has announced applications from the firm of Redmond that are pre-installed on Samsung smartphones.
