Shao Yang, Huawei’s CMO, told “We are still committed to making Windows Phone devices”. He also added that Android devices are more popular on the market.

As per him a “dual OS” incorporating both Android and Windows on a Windows Phone would be the greatest move that the company has yet taken.

He added that “If it is Windows only, maybe people will not find it as easy a decision to buy the phone. If they have the Android and Windows together, you can change it as you wish and it is much easier for people to choose Windows Phone. We think the dual OS can be a new choice for the consumer. It will be on sale in the US in Q2.”

In January, at the Consumer Electronics Show, Intel displayed a chip created for such dual OS devices. It means that the concept is not new and not only used by Huawei but Intel may reveal their new products also.
