Samsung has been featuring Microsoft apps like OneDrive, OneNote, Skype and others for some time now. But, in terms of Galaxy S8, the two tech companies are moving the partnership a bit higher. Microsoft is now selling its own Edition of Samsung Galaxy S8, and pre-orders are accepted starting today in preparation for the launch on April 21st.
Just as you may already know, the yet-to-be-launched S8 will be fully packed with Microsoft’s apps and services like OneDrive, Outlook, Office and Cortana. One thing worth noting is that Microsoft virtual assistant would be added as both smartphones are Samsung’s Bixby big debut. But, in case you’ll need a new version, it’s only logical to include that too.
As revealed by a Microsoft spokesperson, the customization will be included on both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. For the Microsoft Edition, all custom software is downloaded and installed when they are connected to Wi-Fi for the first time. Besides, on the normal versions of the Galaxy S8, there are Office apps, the variant design haps on One Note, Bing, Groove, Skype, Cortana, Excel, Outlook, OneDrive, MSN News and more.
