I think Sammy would introduce a flagship this year based on Tizen for sure.
This OS does look good :)

They will probably make a Galaxy S4 Tizen edition. Nothing wrong with competition it will just encourage google to make more updates.

Samsung should really not feel the need to be like Apple. Hopefully they won't think since they've sold a lot of Android phones that they should now have their own OS made exclusively for them and drop Android completely. I'm pretty sure they're not that stupid... But you never know.

Who told you that they will completely drop Android?

Tizen is a good OS and there is no harm in trying this OS on couple of flagships along with Android. And Samsung is capable enough to do so.

Now don't make any mistake here in TIZEN like BADA. Bada was a flop, I bought one and I felt bad after purchase, now i'll buy any good Android or WP or BB.

What's the differentiator over Android then? Less lag? Or is it just that Samsung wants full control over the OS?

Bada OS have been Fail, Now Tizen be the second experiment. If fail still have 3rd experiment call BATIZ OS (combination Bada and Tizen)...
