Elon Musk is well aware of the art of being in the prevailing news for one reason or another. The man who recently bought Twitter at $44 billion is a true entrepreneur who desires to make a large amount of money through his businesses.

The rumors of a Tesla phone have been circulating in the tech industry for quite a long time. But there wasn’t any stance from the authorities. For the first time, Elon hinted last Saturday that if the problems with its competitors do not get resolved, he might bring a new smartphone with latest features. Here’s everything you need to know about the highly anticipated alternative phone by tech enthusiast Elon Musk.

Core conflict and Elon’s plans to introduce his smartphone

The clash between the big brands was unveiled with Elon’s recently relaunched Twitter manual authentication program. In addition, Apple and Google charge in the form of a commission to app developers of up to 30% for all in-app purchases and sales. Additionally, Elon just released the identity process and set an affordable price to avail of that. In order to become one of the verified accounts on Twitter, subscribers will have to submit a fee of $8 to attain the blue check mark (chosen color for general verified profiles). With this feature update, Twitter will also fall into the category of in-app transactions, where the app will be bound to pay the commission to both the duopoly brands of Android and iOS. On November 26th, a Twitter user tweeted, “If Apple & Google boot Twitter from their app stores, @elonmusk should produce his own smartphone. Half the country would happily ditch the biased, snooping iPhone & Android. The man builds rockets to Mars, a silly little smartphone should be easy, right?”

The female user tagged Elon, and he replied, “I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone.”

Would he be able to launch a competitive smartphone?

Elon is famous for bringing revolutions, and it is definitely not troublesome for him to make his smartphone with the latest technology and improved features. He has bigger fish to fry rather than putting his efforts into making a mere smartphone. Tech geeks around the globe are also speculating on whether this indication will ever turn into reality. However, if the successful entrepreneur plans to introduce an advanced smartphone in the future, then it is exciting to imagine whether Elon would make it on Android or iOS. Elon's potential persuades us to think the unthinkable. What great hype would be created in the tech industry if would launch his own equally efficient OS to be a backbone of a fast-processing smartphone? As for now, this is a sort of warning from a giant businessman to the other two big names in the tech industry. It is yet to be revealed how Twitter would negate to pay to Apple and Google. Additionally, would Elon agree to submit the commission charges to both brands or not? No matter what happens in the future, we will let you get updated.
