Huawei has become a major player in the smartphone market, the company is doing really well with its range of Android devices, and the company’s CEO Richard Yu recently gave an interview to the WSJ.
In the interview, Mr Yu talked about their smartphone business, and he also talked about Tizen, an OS that Samsung has been trying to get off the ground for some time.
Huawei actually looked into Tizen, and the company decided it wasn’t for them, Richard Yu, even went on to say that they think that Tizen has no chance of success, you can see what he said below.
We have no plans to use Tizen. Some telecom carriers are pushing us to design Tizen phones but I say “no” to them. In the past we had a team to do research on Tizen but I canceled it. We feel Tizen has no chance to be successful. Even for Windows Phone it’s difficult to be successful.
Samsung has delayed the launch of their first Tizen OS smartphone a number of times, the company is currently using the OS on the Samsung Gear range of smart watches, whether or not the platform will end up being popular, remains to be seen.
