Samsung, Renew Partnership for Microsoft Before Galaxy Note 10

The partnership is anticipated to result in Samsung selling some of its pre-installed smartphones with Android apps from Microsoft, including the “Your Phone” app that connects Windows 10 PCs to phones, ZDNet reported Friday.

Microsoft is being speculated at the case to demonstrate how its different Office applications would function on Samsung phones ‘ coming wave. While the reports were not discussed by Samsung, a spokesman for Microsoft said the firm had nothing to share, the study added.

In 2013, in patent-licensing royalties, Samsung paid Microsoft $1 billion per year.

Later in 2015, Microsoft and Samsung “extended their collaboration” with Samsung agreeing to pre-install on their Android devices certain Microsoft services and applications.
