Samsung Working On High-end Tizen Phones, Due Next YearBy cheatmaster 02:49 Thu, 29 Jul 2021 Comments
Tizen – the Operating System (OS) of everything - is a slogan Samsung truly stands behind and with its love and nurturing help, the Linux platform is quickly growing in popularity among developers and tinkerers alike.
A recent report, courtesy of Samsung Vietnam, claims that 2016 will be the year of the Tizen revolution, which the Korean giant is assumed to spearhead with a whole recent set of more powerful Tizen handsets. The Operating System (OS) has been around for quite some time now, on the OEM's wearables and also a couple of enty-level phones. The Z1 and Z3 have really benefited from Tizen's lightweight nature and have proven a fine testing ground for the platform's worth as a mobile driver and progress is going great.
The Tizen ecosystem has been expanding rapidly and enjoying a lot of developer support, in part thanks to Samsung's decision to let them haged all app revenue until the discontinue of next year. The Operating System (OS) already has a dedicated VLC app and even an official Facebook app and with Samsung's support, Tizen might really hold off, despite its current low PR profile.
The only thing really missing is a proper hardware stage for Tizen to thrive on and, if this report turns out to be true, we might see a complete Samsung Z series in a matter of months. That would hopefully mean a Z5 and Z8, in keeping with the OEM's current naming convention. Perhaps even a whole recent family with its own proper flagship offer. And we have small doubt that any recent handsets will be accompanied by fascinating wearables as well, showing off Tizen's capabilities on your wrist.
