Samsung, in partnership with Microsoft, recently released the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus Microsoft Edition. Naturally, the tech giant’s flagship device also joins the lineup of Microsoft edition handsets. The smartphone is already available on Microsoft’s online store. The price of the handset is $929.99. However, Black Friday is here, so we could see a significant price cut on the product over the weekend. Basically, there aren’t any major differences between the original Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the Microsoft Edition. The hardware is the same, however, the Microsoft Edition does offer something extra. Namely, users of this model will also get access to a number of Microsoft tools, which are mainly meant to make working on files easier on the Galaxy Note 8.
As you probably remember, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launched back in the summer. It features the same Infinity Display as the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, however, the design is a little different. The Galaxy Note 8 is slightly less rounded and it features a dual camera setup on the back. Of course, it also has space to house the S Pen. The smartphone sports the high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and it includes 6GB of RAM. As for the internal storage, users can opt for 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of it. The handset also features a microSD card slot, so it supports up to 256GB of additional storage.
The 3,300mAh battery might not seem to be enough for a smartphone with a 6.3-inch display, but it actually does a good job and ensures a decent battery life for the handset. Other features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 include a 3.1 USB Type-C connector, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, facial recognition, fingerprint scanner, Bixby, and Samsung DeX support. The smartphone supports not only fast charging but also wireless charging. All in all, it is a powerful handset with a lot of features to offer.
Thanks to the size of the display and the Samsung Desktop Experience support, it is extremely easy to complete work on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. With the Microsoft Edition, things get even better. The Microsoft tools will make working on the smartphone even easier than before.
