Epic just showed us an internal Google proposal document from May 23rd, 2016, where it was figuring out its “next steps with Samsung.”
Within that document, there’s a list of what “Google Gets” and what “Samsung Gets” for each of the proposed items.
One of those proposed items was “Samsung Zone in Play replaces Galaxy Store.”
The “Google Gets” field reads: “No Galaxy Store.”
The “Samsung Gets” field reads: “Stop wasting resources on Galaxy Store.”
Epic’s attorney summed up: so, there was an offer for Google to pay Samsung $50 million a year to close the Galaxy Store?
Gennai said he didn’t recall it like that. “I recall it being a separate storefront that would use Google Play infrastructure.”
