    There will be panic in Mountain View when Samsung dictates the terms to Google with respect to keeping Android on the Galaxy series of smartphones with the cool foldable OLED panels, generous amounts of memory and the only high performance mobile CPU outside of Apple

    That day is coming. 

    As I am saying, the Android community will split and fracture. Those powerful and cheap Android phones are going away. Especially with Samsung dictating the prices on those precious display panels and memory. The non iOS mobile community will have a tough decision to make. Whether to purchase a less capable and more costly Android device with far more software applications or a less costly and far more powerful device with a relative paucity of software applications running Tizen. My guess is that the more powerful and less costly Samsung Tizen device wins out over the likes of Oppo, HTC, LG, Huawei and the like. People love better specs. And they love superior images along with the CPU power to process them quickly and efficiently. And with the move to high end devices running Tizen, the developers will shift their focus off of Android and onto Tizen as the preferred non iOS platform. 




    There are way too many flawed arguments in your post, with few facts mixed in. I find it quite difficult to explain details about those flawed arguments. Rather, I would just mark those flawed arguments in bold. Anything more than that is a waste of time.
    That's the lamest reply I've ever read, either take time to reply or shut up; simple isn't it.

    Agreed, but the reply would go to multiple pages and I did not have time (about 30 minutes!!!) when I replied (even now). Anyway when I find time, I will put a detailed reply.

    <Muthu:> Pure imagination. Samsung can never develop Tizen to replace Android in their high end smartphones. There will be NO takers for Tizen phones when their pricetag exceeds $150. It is just a pipedream to think that Samsung can even sell 10 Tizen smartphones with >$500, leave alone 10 million of them.

    Only high performance mobile CPU outside of Apple? Wait for Kirin 970 to release later this year, before passing this judgement. Kirin 960 is already equal to Exynos 8890. Agreed Qualcomm has regressed in the recent 2 years. Luckily Huawei has stepped up with its Kirin processors.

    That day is coming. 
    <Muthu:> No, that day is NEVER going to come. I can tell you which day is coming - the day when Samsung abandons Tizen for its smartphones, much like they did with Bada.

    As I am saying, the Android community will split and fracture.
    <Muthu:> Split and fracture over what?
    Those powerful and cheap Android phones are going away.
    <Muthu:> Pipe dream

    <Muthu:> Pipe dream. Just a reminder - Why did Windows Phone die? How different Samsung is approaching Tizen, compared to what Microsoft did with Windows phone?
    People love better specs. And they love superior images along with the CPU power to process them quickly and efficiently. And with the move to high end devices running Tizen, the developers will shift their focus off of Android and onto Tizen as the preferred non iOS platform. 
    <Muthu:> Even Samsung executives will NOT have the same optimism for Tizen, like you. Why is Samsung not using Tizen instead of Android in A series (upper mid-range) OR J series (best selling) phones? They know they would be history the moment they attempt it.

    Well I discovered something about Assistant last night (on Android at least) that makes it hugely more useful. It can interact with other apps. For instance I can now say "OK Google turn the TV on" or "off" or "Volume up" or "OK Google tune to Fox 13" or "open Netflix" etc via Assistant and Harmony integration. 

    With Always Listening for the keyword active I don't even need to pick my phone up.
