Samsung will take the wraps from the Galaxy Note 10 in a few days at its Unpacked event in New York, and one from the guests using the stage to go over the new features of the unit is none other than Microsoft.
The most recent speculation concerning the collaboration between Microsoft and Samsung indicates that the two recently decided to pre-install Redmond’s Your Phone app on the Galaxy Note 10, in addition to the remaining Microsoft apps that were already pre-loaded.
This means the “Microsoft apps” folder around the Galaxy Note 10 will thus expand with this generation, and users is going to be offered not just Office apps, OneDrive, and Skype, but also the newly-developed Your Phone app.
Together with your Phone, Microsoft brings Android smartphones and Windows 10 PCs in sync, providing users with features like phone notifications and screen mirroring around the desktop.
More Samsung phones getting Your Phone app
By the looks of things, the renewed partnership between Samsung and Microsoft doesn’t concern only the Galaxy Note 10, but a whole “wave of Samsung phones,” as per the sourced linked above. This means Samsung could pre-install Microsoft apps on a number of its new devices, including the Galaxy Fold set for debut in September.
Recently, however, it’s been rumored that the OneDrive promo provided to Samsung customers came to a close at the end of July. The campaign allowed Samsung phone proprietors to have an additional of 100 GB of free storage on OneDrive free of charge, so starting with the Note 10, the two companies have allegedly decided to renew their collaboration without it promo included.
Neither company confirmed the plan over pre-installed Microsoft apps on Samsung phones, but we’ll discover everything in a few days as the debut of the Galaxy Note 10 is simply around the corner.
