One of the most-touted features in Windows 10 Mobile was Continuum, an ability that allowed users to connect Windows Phones to monitor with a dock and use the monitor as a full-fledged PC with keyboard and mouse support. Continuum idea itself is alive and it’s only going to get better in the coming years.

Continuum was also one of the innovative efforts of Microsoft to offer a smooth OS’s transition. Huawei is working on a similar feature, but it appears to be more advanced and better.

Huawei today at CES Asia 2018 announced a new project called Huawei PC Cloud that brings full Windows 10 to smartphones via the power of the cloud. The project is similar to Microsoft’s Continuum and Samsung DeX. Huawei has released a new app “Cloud PC” that allows virtualization of full Windows 10 on a smartphone.

You can install the app on smartphones such as Huawei P20 Pro and run full Windows 10.

As the full Windows 10 desktop experience on a phone is not user-friendly, Huawei is also allowing users to plug their phone into an external mouse, keyboard, and monitor to switch to a desktop-like experience on a large screen.

The company appears to be using the USB Type C port to connect the phone to PC and run Windows 10.

Huawei is also using the Desktop Protocol (HDP) which basically allows users to edit the files stored in the phone directly from the connected monitor.

The Cloud PC app will work on Huawei P20, P20 Pro, Mate 10, Mate RS and MediaPad M5 tablet. The app would become available for download in China on June 26.
