Turns out there are no Microsoft Editions of the the Galaxy S8m S8+ and Note 8 smartphones and Samsung seems to have realised this just now.

"Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 are available in the Microsoft online and retail stores with a unique Microsoft experience which ensures their customers a best-in-class productivity experience. There is not a 'Microsoft Edition' brand of any Samsung Galaxy products," Windows Central reported, quoting a Samsung representative.

It has now turned out that the reports were part of a promotional campaign to get people to visit the Microsoft stores.

The reports of the launch of a special "Microsoft Edition" Galaxy S8 surfaced for several days following the commercial debut of the smartphones.

In November, Microsoft started selling the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on its online store. The Galaxy Note 8 comes packed with pre-installed apps like virtual assistant Cortana, Word, Excel, OneNote and Outlook.

Notably, Galaxy S8 and S8+ have been immensely successful in rebuilding Samsung's image as a smartphone manufacturer after the Note 7 debacle.

Driven by the Galaxy S8 and S8+ sales, Samsung pipped Apple to grab the top spot in the global smartphone sales to end users (by vendor) in the third quarter of 2017, market research firm Gartner said last week.
