Microsoft has updated the lineup of phones available in the Microsoft Store, because the company stopped selling several older models that are less likely to become purchased by its customers.
These devices do not include Windows phones, which Microsoft has stopped selling, but Android models manufactured by its partners, like Samsung and Razer.
As reported by Neowin, Microsoft has become selling just the latest-generation Samsung and Razer phones, so you can buy the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy A6, the Razer Phone 2, the ASUS ROG Phone, and the Samsung Galaxy Note9.
Models like Samsung Galaxy S8, Note8, and the first-generation Razer Phone are thus no more offered by the Microsoft Store.
Microsoft is very likely to add a new phone to the list sometime next month after Samsung launches the brand-new Galaxy Note 10. The Redmond-based software giant became one from the largest retailers of Samsung models, and it typically adds new devices the South Koreans launch in a few weeks after release.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is projected to become unveiled on August 7, while sales will start later the same month.
The Android push
As everyone knows already, Microsoft is not making its very own phones, as the company abandoned its mobile platform and is now focusing on apps and services for Android and iOS.
The Android devices which are kept in the Microsoft Store can thus be customized with apps produced by the software giant itself, including Microsoft Launcher, Cortana, and Microsoft Edge. Microsoft even recommends installing some of these apps on Android for any personalized experience that provides easy access to its services.
As a reminder, Windows 10 Mobile is anticpated to be retired in December, after which the organization will no longer release any security updates for that devices still being used.
