Earlier we had reported that Microsoft is selling the Samsung Galaxy S9 device on its Store. The device was earlier available for pre-order on the Microsoft Store.

Today we report that the device is now available for purchase on the Microsoft Store and you can buy it online. It is a known fact that Microsoft has already given up on Windows 10 Mobile and is concentrating more on rival platforms by pre-installing most of its app on the devices.

Samsung Galaxy S9 is just a┬ábasic smartphone, and it won’t come pre-installed with Microsoft Launcher or other Microsoft Apps like Office, Skype and more. The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ comes with some great specs for users like a Snapdragon 845 Qualcomm processor, 5.8″ Super AMOLED touchscreen.

The device has a 12MP Camera and LED Flash and Internal storage of 64GB which can be expandable upto 256GB via a MicroSD card.

For power users, the device boasts with a 4GB of RAM and comes with Google’s latest Operating System Android Oreo out of the box. But the thing to note is that the device will be supporting only One Nano SIM.

With all the news that the Samsung S9 is a Microsoft Edition, the company in a statement has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S9 which is available on its Microsoft Store is the same as is available elsewhere and there is no such existence of a Samsung Galaxy S9 Microsoft Edition.

The device will support Microsoft Apps like Cortana, Skype and more but these apps can be installed by a Microsoft authorised agent if the phone is purchased via the Microsoft Store.

The company also said that the device can be purchased online from its Microsoft Store and is also available elsewhere and there is no difference between the device on Microsoft Store and the device sold by Samsung authorised sellers.

    It’s not a Microsoft Edition S9. It is the normal unlocked factory unit. Microsoft and Samsung stopped making Microsoft Edition devices. Update your article.
