Microsoft Edition Galaxy Note 8 now available from Microsoft’s online store
Microsoft has listed the Microsoft Edition of the Galaxy Note 8 on its online store in the United States, following its release of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ last week. The handset is priced at $929.99 outright, but the manufacturer is expected to kick off a Black Friday promotion over the weekend.
The main difference between Microsoft Edition-branded Galaxy smartphones and the standard Samsung variants is that they come pre-loaded with a slew of Microsoft’s productivity tools, including Cortana and its recently-launched Microsoft Launcher, which makes it easier to access important files.
Let’s talk about specs
The stylus-toting Galaxy Note 8, for those who missed its unveiling, sports a 6.3-inch near-bezel-less Infinity Display, an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 processor (market dependent), 6GB of RAM, a 12MP dual-camera setup, an 8MP front-facing shooter and a 3,300mAh non-removable battery.
