Samsung to sell first Tizen smartphone next year according to rumor

2 January, 2013 Samsung

 

Tizen is a Linux-based operating system that emerged from the death of Nokia's MeeGo. Intel, which originally worked with Nokia on MeeGo, and Samsung took over the development of the operating system, which is also overseen by the Linux Foundation. It is seen as more open than Google's Android, which despite its claims of openness, has irked some partners with certain restrictions, including the inability to make massive changes to the underlying platform.


Samsung is the biggest backer of the open source Tizen OS and according to Daily Yomiuri, Tizen-powered devices will likely to be on the market next year sold by Samsung. While the newspaper didn't divulge any more details, NTT Docomo is said to be the carrier in Japan who'll carry Tizen running phone manufactured by Samsung.



The OS that Docomo and its partners are developing is named Tizen. Samsung will probably begin selling the smartphones next year and they are likely to be released in Japan and other countries at around the same time, according to sources.


We'll hear more about Tizen at the expo in February at Mobile World Congress event in Spain.
