You Can Now Get a Microsoft Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S9

Posted on March 9, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Hardware, Microsoft with 28 Comments

Microsoft has started selling its own edition of Samsung’s latest flagships, the S9 and the S9 Plus. The Microsoft Edition Galaxy S9 and S9+ are available for pre-order now from the Microsoft Store online in the United States, and it starts shipping on March 16.

The Microsoft Edition Galaxy handsets aren’t too different from the regular Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. “A Microsoft customization is applied to the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus Microsoft Edition when the devices are unboxed and connected to Wi-Fi,” a Microsoft spokesperson told TrustedReviews. This means it will come pre-installed with Microsoft’s Office suite and a couple of other Microsoft apps, but the experience will not be too different from the regular Galaxy S9.

Hardware wise, Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 is more of a minor upgrade to last year’s S8. The device packs a seriously improved camera with the world’s first mechanical aperture system, improved design, stereo speakers, and more.
