Samsung launches its first phone with Tizen before the end of June. That the manufacturer has confirmed in an interview. Tizen is partly the operating system on the new smart watches the South Korean manufacturer.
The smartphone with Tizen should actually have come true, all last winter but the Japanese operator NTT Docomo and the French Orange blew both the release of Tizen device at the last moment. Now the device is still in stores in June in “some countries where we can do it well,” says a Samsung chief executive in an interview with Reuters.
The first smartphone with Tizen will be a high-end model, while a second will appear later this year which is a bit cheaper. In which countries the Samsung phones with Tizen will release, is unclear. It is unlikely that it is the Netherlands; manufacturers in the Netherlands come to be as a country where Android and iOS have a firm grasp on the market and where competing operating systems hardly get a chance known.
Samsung has released the first hardware with Tizen been released in the Netherlands; smart watches Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, who last week along with the Galaxy S5 came on the market. Tizen is an operating system on a Linux kernel that Samsung is working with Intel. It is a continuation of the work that Intel did with Nokia on MeeGo. There has never been a phone with Tizen true.
