Schmidt insists Apple and Google are very good friends.

Schmidt claims the iOS vs. Android conflict is as fierce as ever.

Google chairman Eric Schmidt claims that Samsung had the iPhone 6’s technology one year ago, in a new interview for Bloomberg TV.

Sitting down with Google’s former Senior Vice President Jonathan Rosenberg to promote their new book How Google Works, Schmidt fended questions about the Android vs. iOS competition from “Market Makers” hosts Stephanie Ruhle and Erik Schatzker.

At one point in the interview, Ruhle asks Schmidt how he feels seeing people lined up around the block to pick up the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which sold a massive 10 million+ units in their first weekend on sale.

“Even though way more people carry Android phones how does Apple have that desire factor?” Ruhle says.

“I’ll tell you what I think,” Schmidt answers. “Samsung had these products a year ago.”

In fact, he says Cupertino is thawing in many respects towards the search giant.
