"Samsung is relaunching the Galaxy Store as a place for casual and hardcore gamers alike to discover exciting gaming experiences and take advantage of unique benefits for Galaxy users," the company said in its announcement.
The new Galaxy Store has an all new UI with just two tabs placed on the bottom - Games and Apps.
