You can now purchase the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Microsoft Edition from the Microsoft online store. The phones are now on sale, only in the United States.

What’s different with the Microsoft Edition of the Galaxy S8/S8+? Well, not much really. The phones are exactly the same as the regular variants, except, now you get some Microsoft apps built in on the device. You can still download all the Microsoft apps and the Microsoft Launcher from the Play Store on any other device and get the same experience.

Finally, you also get the Cortana smart assistant. So that gives users access to both Bixby and Cortana. Here’s a guide on how to disable Bixby, in case you want to.
