The Samsung Galaxy Note20 Series will allow you to play Xbox games over the cloud

A tease that was first revealed way back in 2018 is now official. Samsung will be bringing its Microsoft partnership to the entertainment side of the Galaxy Note20 series, taking mobile play to the next level. Starting from 15th September, the Note20 will be the first Android-based smartphone that allows Xbox gamers to play over 100 Xbox games over the cloud (via Microsoft Project xCloud) with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Games will include titles like Minecraft Dungeons, Destiny 2 and Gears 5, and the Galaxy Note20 series gaming experience is further up-leveled with its AI game booster and Bluetooth audio response. It’s still beta right now though, so expect some kinks that still need to be ironed out. Naturally, an Xbox controller and Xbox Game Pass subscription are required, and I suspect a 5G connection as well - if you're playing away from a WiFi access.
