Huawei no longer plans to release a "dual-OS" Android-Windows Phone smartphone, a company representative confirmed to InformationWeek.
In an emailed statement, the company said it has no plans to launch a dual OS smartphone. In an interview this month with the website TrustedReviews.com, Huawei CMO Shao Yang promised an Android-Windows Phone hybrid device would hit the US market in the second quarter of this year.
In its email, the company said it maintains "an open approach towards mobile operating systems" but focuses primarily on Android. Huawei also said that Microsoft remains a key partner, and "as long as the consumers continue to demand Windows, we will continue to supply them."
During his interview, Yang mentioned many of the talking points Huawei included in the statement it sent InformationWeek this week. He described Android devices as a priority and Windows Phone handsets as an opportunity, for example.
