Samsung Reportedly Developing Windows Phone Smartphones

By Anuj

Microsoft has tried its best to promote Windows Phone a popular mobile OS. Well, the Redmond-based giant hasn't won the mobile OS war yet.

However, if reports are to be believed, Samsung and Microsoft have big plans to project Windows Phone OS as an alternative to Google's Android operating system. This could be only done, if Samsung agrees to manufacture cheaper Windows Phone-based handsets.

Samsung Reportedly Developing Windows Phone Smartphones


A report out of South Korea says that Samsung is currently testing the stability of Windows Phone 8.1 OS in order to release affordable handsets.

According to an unnamed Samsung official working on the project, "Samsung has run pilot programs on the stability of Windows 8.1 software on devices. It is interested in promoting Windows mobiles."

Samsung hasn't announced a single Windows Phone-powered smartphone for quite some time. Samsung ATIV SE, a mid-end Windows Phone was unveiled in the US, back in April last year.

Now it's been reported that Samsung could be thinking to re-kindle with Microsoft on a special project.

"Microsoft knows Samsung has indisputable strengths in marketing and understands that it will be helpful if it promotes Windows mobiles. Samsung knows this. The two companies are still trying to find common ground".

Reportedly, the anonymous Samsung official says the production of a new Samsung-branded Windows Phone is entirely dependent on the two company's mutual understanding. As of now, it's believed that Samsung could launch a brand new Windows Phone model in the third quarter of this year.
