While it’s fun to look at how far things have come on consoles and home PCs, the reality is the most rapid growth in computing power is happening on mobiles. That was made evidently clear at the World Mobile Congress, with Samsung showing off a feature in their latest Galaxy S7 that would fit right at home with any PC.
According to Gizmodo Australia’s Campbell Simpson, who’s currently in Barcelona for the trade show, the Galaxy S7 now comes with a Game Launcher that combines all game downloads into a quick access folder on the home screen or app page (much like how some phones now group all Google apps into a single folder).
But the most interesting element of Samsung’s Game Launcher is the PC-like Game Tools. I’ll let Simpson’s words do the talking:
It’s more than a folder, though; the Game Launcher also allows access to Samsung’s Game Tools, where users can choose from four resolution and frame rate presets that it says can significantly lower power consumption when playing — by up to 15 per cent in some cases.
