Microsoft starts selling customised Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+

IANS  |  San Francisco 

has started selling a customised version of the newly-launched Galaxy and Galaxy S9+ on its store.

The "edition" will give users access to a range of Microsoft's apps such as Excel, Skype, Cortana, OneNote, PowerPoint, Word and Launcher after setting up the phone.

"The phones look the same as the standard version at first glance and the hardware is exactly the same. The (OS) will be the same too. It's the apps that are different," Digital Trends reported late on Friday.

However, the apps will not come pre-installed.

"A Microsoft customisation is applied to the Galaxy and Galaxy S9+ 'Microsoft Edition' when the devices are unboxed and connected to Wi-Fi," a Microsoft was quoted as saying by Trusted Reviews.

Prospective buyers can pre-order a unit but delivery will begin on March 16.

Microsoft has reportedly said that quantities of the devices are limited.
