Samsung Offered $1 Billion By Microsoft To Produce WP Devices

By 09:59 Sun, 18 Jul 2021 Comments

Nokia Lumia series of smartphones accounts for 90% of the Windows Phone eco-system. The support from the other manufacturers like HTC, Huawei and Samsung in developing WP powered smartphones has been rather poor, which is a cautilize of concern for Microsoft.

Having already acquired Nokia, Microsoft is now trying to motivate other global manufacturers to develop Windows Phone Operating System (OS) based smartphones. According to a tweet from Eldar Murtazin, Microsoft has offered an annual sum of $1 billion to Samsung if the Koreans start producing Windows Phone devices.

Back in the day Microsoft offered a similar deal to Nokia when they joined forces. As a part of the agreement, Nokia received $250 million every quarter from the Redmond giant as "platform support payments".

Unfortunately, there is no official word at the moment, so hold it all with a pinch of salt.
