All of a sudden, a discussion has started about Microsoft selling Samsung recently-released phones. For all those, the Samsung’s Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note 8 phones are Android phones, not Windows 10 units: you are not getting a “Microsoft Edition” unit.

The company decided to contact Windows Central to “correct” the term “Microsoft Edition” when talking about the smartphones that are being sold by the Microsoft Store.

Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note8 devices are available in the Microsoft online and retail stores with a unique Microsoft experience which ensures their customers, particularly small-to-midsize business owners and entrepreneurs, a best-in-class productivity experience. There is not a ‘Microsoft Edition’ brand of any Samsung Galaxy products.

The “experience” includes a variety of basic Microsoft apps: Skype, Outlook, Office and the sort — coming pre-loaded on the device

The “experience” contains a bunch of basic Microsoft apps — Skype, Outlook, Office and the sort — coming pre-loaded on the devices. But while there was some implication, there was never any sense that a Windows 10 Mobile operating system would be installed on a Galaxy device.
