Microsoft Store to Sell Customized Versions of Galaxy S8 and S8+

Posted by at 5:17 pm on March 30, 2017

Microsoft will sell the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ in its brick-and-mortar retail stores beginning April 21, reports ZDNet. Microsoft will customize the S8 and S8+ by adding a number of its own apps and services, though Microsoft declined to state exactly which ones.

OneDrive Cortana, Outlook, and MSOffice look like sure bets.

 “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,” said Microsoft in a statement provided to ZDNet.

Microsoft has preinstalled its software on Samsung handsets in the past. Microsoft will charge the same $750 and $850 retail prices for the S8 and S8+, respectively, as Samsung and other retailers.

Microsoft did not say if the customized phones will be sold unlocked.
