Deal could result in a Samsung Nexus device

A report is making the rounds that Google isn't happy about how some companies are tweaking Android reports NDTV. Specifically, the report claims that Samsung has been asked to tone down its custom software. The source claims that Samsung is considering modifying or even dropping its new Magazine UX for future devices.

The report also claims that Samsung will be using Google's apps for movies, music, and other content in the future. Samsung has used its own apps for these things in the past. There is speculation than in exchange for getting Samsung to tone down its own apps on Android devices, Google gave a concession.

The concession is said to be working with Samsung on a Nexus device in the future. There have been a lot of companies about how much software comes pre-installed on Android devices. This bloatware come in duplicated apps for things like video and others with Samsung offering its won and Google offering one as well.

There is no official comment on this deal from either company. It would be a nice move for users of Samsung devices if it results in less bloatware.
