Microsoft starts selling Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+ online

Microsoft had been selling the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ at its brick and mortar stores since their launch, but they weren't available online until recently. Starting this week, customers who prefer to shop online will be able to purchase Samsung's flagship's via Microsoft Store Online.

The unlocked versions of both Samsung smartphones are now available at Microsoft Store, as well as AT&T and Verizon models. The former sell for $725 and $825 respectively, while the Verizon models cost $720 and $840.

Consumers who favor AT&T over Verizon will have to pay slightly more, as Samsung Galaxy S8 costs $750, whereas the Galaxy S8+ is priced to sell for no less than $850 outright.

Keep in mind though that if you choose the unlocked Galaxy S8 or S8+, you will get a $150 discount as part of Microsoft's Black Friday promotion. It appears that the AT&T and Verizon models are not eligible for the discount.

The demise of Windows Phone? Anyone. Microsoft sharing store space with Samsung? Yeah, that’s unexpected.

Meh. Microsoft will sell any device with their softwares preloaded in it. It's nothing new anymore. They sold Samsung laptops too fyi.

Why not? Microsoft makes a pretty penny on every single Android sold.

Not surprised. Since they are selling very poorly compared to last years' S7 and S7 Edge they might had to do some kind of sales refreshes to the lineup. Loser tend to come closer to fight the winners sometimes.....lolzz But what's funny is Apple is doing much better than those two companies

Would be awesome to have Windows 10 on ARM ported to Dex just like Linux on Galaxy, and perhaps have it bundled with a microsoft edition of the Note 8. That will be way better than any Surface Phone with merely Windows 10 on ARM, as you'll be getting the best of a Smartphone with Android and the best of a Desktop with Windows.
