Google has long remained the default search engine for the Korean brand’s products, including the Galaxy series of smartphones and tablets, paying significant sums to Samsung. Of course, it was reported last month Samsung probably plans to use Bing as the default search engine for its products; A situation that was probably not in Google’s favor.

Now to the report Wall street JournalSamsung has decided to suspend the replacement of Bing with Google after reviewing the matter.

Apparently, the South Korean tech giant initially decided to use Bing as the default search engine for its products. Now, the company seems to think that such a decision won’t change the status quo much, as most Samsung users prefer other browsers like Chrome to the default browser on Galaxy devices.

The Wall Street Journal’s sources claim that Samsung backed off because of concerns about the effects of using Bing as the default search engine for its smartphones on its relationship with Google.

Of course, Samsung hasn’t given up on using Bing in general, so it’s likely that the company will revisit the issue in the future.
