As far as specifications go, the Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition is the same as the regular version being sold by Samsung.
DJ Koh, president of mobile communications business at Samsung Electronics, said: "The Galaxy S8 is our testament to regaining your trust by redefining what's possible in safety and marks a new milestone in Samsung's smartphone legacy".
There are some new additions to the GS8 Microsoft Edition.
According to The Verge, the South Korean tech giant will be releasing the unlocked models of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones as listed in Best Buy. Besides Skype, OneDrive and OneNote, customers will also find apps like Outlook and Cortana. Along with this information are some images where we can see precisely the applications compatible with Bixby in the virtual assistant's own menu.
ZDNet reported that the Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition will be priced at $750, and the S8+ at $850, which is in line with other wireless carriers. They will only be available in AT&T or Verizon flavors for now. The device should ship when the Galaxy S8 starts shipping around end of April. By using nearly the entire front part of the phone for the 5.8 display (6.2 for the S8 Plus), Samsung was able to create a large-screen phone that doesn't feel large at all. Samsung placed the fingerprint sensor at the back to give way to more display utilization.
Both the handsets will boast 4GB of RAM and come with 64GB inbuilt storage while also supporting expandable storage via microSD card (up to 256GB). The company has actually lowered the capacity of the battery of the Galaxy S8, but tweaked it in a way to make it last longer.
At the MWC 2017, Google confirmed that all Android Marshmallow and Nougat devices will receive the Google Assistant via a software update. People hoped, however, that Samsung had managed to improve on the feature.style="text-align: center;"
