Samsung Galaxy S6 to come with a slew of productivity-centric Microsoft apps on board

We already seem to know a lot of the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S6; we also seem to have a vision of what the device will look like. What we don't know yet is what apps will come pre-installed on the device, though we suppose that just as usual, consumers will be treated to some exclusive content.

A recent report claims to shed some light on the matter, hinting us that a number of Microsoft-developed apps will be among the apps that the Galaxy S6 will feature. In particular, these are tipped to be Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft OneNote, Microsoft OneDrive, and Skype. What's more, the flagship will likely arrive with a year-long subscription for Office 365.

This improvement of the relations between Samsung and Microsoft is probably due to the recently-settled patent dispute between the two "frienemies", which are both rivals on the market and partnering on patents.
