Samsung and Motorola’s growing distance from SK Telecom is turning out to be a boon for KT. According to a report in Korea Times, KT is gearing up to launch two flagship Android smartphones Motorola Atrix and Samsung Galaxy S II in the country.
KT confirmed that it has made “substantial progress” to release Atrix and a Samsung Electronics spokesman said it is mulling the possibility to sell the Galaxy S2 via KT’s sales channels.
“SK Telecom is being pressurized to block ‘vendor exodus.’ We are in a challenging situation. SK Telecom will release the Atrix and Galaxy S2, however, KT has the same plans,” said the executive who is directly involved with the matter on the condition of anonymity to Korea Times.
