Two weeks ago, Microsoft added the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus to its online store. Now, it has added the Galaxy Note 8.
The popular phablet from Samsung can now be purchased through Microsoft’s online store. The device isn’t any different from the Note 8 sold by Samsung. The device does come with a few preinstalled Windows apps and the Microsoft Launcher.
The devices from Samsung sold by Microsoft are known as the Microsoft Editions. The only difference is that they come with some Windows apps installed. These apps can also be found on the Google Play Store.
Earlier this month, Microsoft added the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus to the online store. Like the Galaxy Note 8 addition, there is no difference other than the preinstalled apps. The two smartphones are available for the same price as Samsung’s. In April, Microsoft began selling the S8 and S8 Plus in stores.
