US operators miss benefiting from Huawei’s Nexus 6P & LG’s Nexus 5X signature Android 6 smartphonesOctober 07, 2015Nexus devices are the signature smartphones for each generation of Android and provide operators, developers and the mobile industry the first exposure to Google’s latest innovations. It's also the first time Google has chosen a Chinese brand to make a Nexus device. US telecom operators are notable among major operator groups in choosing not to range this generation of Nexus smartphones. IHS believes this lack of US operator support is because of misplaced fears. US operators should seize the tactical benefit for their customer acquisition volumes from selling these strong Nexus devices.

Samsung is launching the Z1 exclusively in India. Unusually for an OS launch product, the Z1 does not feature high-end hardware to show off the new software. Despite the launch, IHS does not believe that Tizen will make a significant impact on the smartphone market.

Google's Motorola Mobility sale will boost Lenovo in the US Mobile MarketJanuary 29, 2014The deal with Lenovo confirms that Google's main interest in buying Motorola was its patent and IP portfolio. Also, Google removes the channel conflict with other Android smartphone makers but has made a significant loss on its investment. Lenovo's $2.91bn barely covers the cash acquired as part of Motorola Mobility. It's happening now because Google has settled intellectual property cross licensing with Samsung. Lenovo benefits in four key areas through the acquisition: Entry to the US mobile market; brand assets; mobile engineering expertise; and a stronger Google relationship. IHS believes Lenovo is right to plan to use the Motorola brand in the US, but its own brand in China and emerging markets because of Motorola's very weak footprint outside the Americas.
