If LG succeeds in it's stated plans to build an eco-system and if Samsung do the same with Tizen (they may be further ahead with this), then moving their respective OSs to phones may be the final piece of the puzzle (i.e. won't happen for a while, if ever). In fact, if Samsung make a significant move to phones with Tizen, LG may feel compelled to match their rival. For now, LuneOS is the only player in this area. Note that any new webOS apps should run on it, though some rewriting for the move to a handheld screen maybe required, so LuneOS can benefit from LG eco-system plans...
