Samsung Electronics will not change the default search engine on its smartphones from Google to Microsoft Corp’s Bing any time soon, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, citing people familiar with the matter.

Shares of Google-parent Alphabet Inc gained more than 1 per cent in premarket trading. Microsoft shares were down about 1 per cent.

Samsung has suspended an internal review that explored replacing Google with Bing on its web-browsing app, which comes pre-installed on the company’s smartphones, according to the report.
