Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus Microsoft Editions to be available from April 21 in US

Microsoft has announced a special edition of Samsung’s brand new flagship devices, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Called the Microsoft Edition, the variant will be available in the US and Engadget reports that the company has started accepting pre-orders at its retail stores ahead of its launch on April 21. 

The Microsoft Editions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus do not come with the mobile version of Windows 10. The devices still come with Android Nougat, but when the user first connects them to a Wi-Fi, the device downloads additional applications such as Cortana, Outlook, OneDrive, Office and more. 

In a statement to Engadget, a Microsoft spokesperson said, “Microsoft Store is committed to empowering its customers to achieve more through Office and Microsoft applications. The new device customization is an example of bringing together Microsoft applications on more devices so customers can work, play and connect from their pockets.”

To recall, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus were launched just a few days ago and are more or less the same devices. The only difference between the two are the screen and battery sizes. The standard Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch display and a 3000mAh battery, while the Galaxy S8 Plus features a 6.2-inch display and a 3500mAh battery. Both devices come with a 12MP rear camera with OIS and a f/1.7 aperture lens along with an 8MP front facing camera. In addition, the two devices are also the first to come with Bixby, Samsung’s own AI driven assistant.
