Facebook is apparently in talks with Samsung to build its next smartphone, according to a latest report from Korea Times. The rumors about the possibility of a new Facebook Phone has surfaced owing to a recent meeting between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Samsung Electronics vice chairman Lee Jay-yong in Seoul.
If the reports are to be believed, this will not be the first time Facebook is working on a smartphone. The social network’s first attempt was in collaboration with HTC when it launched a Facebook-centric phone dubbed as HTC ChaCha that featured a physical Facebook button for quickly posting to the social network. Another phone was the HTC First, which included the Facebook Home operating system. However, both the phones failed to pick up and did not receive good reviews.
Details about the Facebook Samsung smartphone are limited as of now. The two companies are already working together on Oculus and Samsung Gear VR headset.
