The world's second-largest mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics and South Korea's top automaker Hyundai Motor are considering a joint development of smart car.

Hyundai Motor is examining with whom it will develop a smart car that enables automatic connection between the vehicle's tablet computer and smartphones, an official at the company told Xinhua on Tuesday.

The automaker is negotiating with several IT companies, and Samsung is one of the potential partners, he said.

Samsung also confirmed it is considering a partnership with Hyundai Motor to develop a smart car, an official at the company said by phone.

According to industry sources, Hyundai Motor plans to install self-developed tablet computers into the new models from 2013.

Such smart vehicles are expected to allow free and easy access to the various contents of the smartphone from the car's tablet computer, they said.
