In fact Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Microsoft Edition are available to pre-order now and for purchase beginning April 21 at U.S. Microsoft Store locations.

Samsung has officially unveiled the latest addition to Galaxy premium range, the Galaxy S8 at its Unpacked 2017 event in NY.

As the top-line handsets for the world's biggest smartphone vendor, the Galaxy S8 models will challenge the latest Apple iPhones.

Microsoft has partnered with Samsung to launch its own customised version of the new Galaxy S8 smartphone.

Key features of the device includes a unique new "infinity display", giving the device a bezel-less curved edge and a 12 megapixel back camera.
