Samsung today announced the next step in its long-term, strategic partnership with Microsoft to bring seamless productivity experiences across devices, applications and services.

Starting with exclusive Microsoft integrations in the new Galaxy Note10, users will now have a simple way to work fluidly between a smartphone and a PC, while the Galaxy Book S introduces an all new mobile computing experience with its uncompromising mobility and next-generation performance.

Bringing the best of both Galaxy and Windows platforms, this partnership will continue to expand as Samsung and Microsoft leverage cloud computing and advanced intelligence to deliver rich, seamless mobile experiences to market in the 5G era.

“We believe the mobile industry is on the cusp of a transformation, one in which individual devices give way to seamless, connected and continuous experiences, wherever we go,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.

“Open collaborations, like this industry-leading partnership with Microsoft, are instrumental in pioneering a new generation of mobile experiences. As new technologies like 5G become a reality, our partnership will play an important role in helping people live more fluid, flexible lives.”

Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft added,

“Microsoft and Samsung share a long history of innovation and collaboration, and today’s announcements mark the next stage in our partnership,”

“Our ambition is to help people be more productive on any device, anywhere – and the combination of our intelligent experiences with Samsung’s powerful, new devices makes this a reality.”

Seamless Productivity Across Devices

Consumers live and work across multiple devices, and the need for better and easier connectivity is clear. Today’s cross-device experience can be fragmented—users on a PC have to interrupt their flow to look over at their phone, open an app to then send images, videos or files to their PC. Instead, they want a world in which their content syncs automatically, so they can start a project in one place on one device, and pick it up on another, without distractions.

As mobile-first users make up a larger share of the workforce, the demand for more seamless connectivity will only increase. According to the analyst firm CCS Insight, 42% of employees spend more than three hours a day working on a mobile device, which is even higher for millennial employees at 51%. This partnership enables users to now have a unified experience across multiple devices wherever they are.

Samsung and Microsoft are also bridging the gap between mobility and performance with the new Samsung Galaxy Book S, which offers an always-connected solution that brings the smartphone experience to a laptop. The Galaxy Book S has built-in LTE connectivity, a powerhouse battery life and an ultra-slim, lightweight design to usher in a new mobile computing experience.

With the Galaxy Note10, Samsung and Microsoft will also commit to empower businesses to be even more productive. This partnership will offer enterprise users improved remote access to their enterprise workspace, including the full suite of Office applications.
