Come see the Samsung Galaxy S4 running on Tizen
The latest word we had on Tizen is that Samsung plans to officially introduce the platform at its Developers Conference next month. This comes after several rumors, including a tweet from Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin, said that the OS was DOA. While relations between Google and Samsung appear to be alright for the moment, there are other reasons for Samsung to want to keep developing Tizen besides keeping Google in its place. The theory is that Google does not want to lose the number one Android producer, and Tizen gives Samsung some leverage in dealings between the two giants.

A series of pictures from Tizen Indonesia shows version 3.0 of the OS running on a Samsung Galaxy S4. What you see might not be what you get as further changes could be made to the UI before the platform is launched on a device. According to the site, that launch won't happen until Q1 of next year.

On the other hand, nothing ever is what it seems when talking about Tizen, launch dates and specific Tizen powered devices. We've seen our share of alleged Tizen driven handsets and certain launch dates never come to fruition, so let's just call this a situation in flux for the time being.


Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

No one article without "hairdressers-designers" coments. LOL
Apple totally brainwashed you guys.

To the point: Tizen is OS that is supposed to work on PC and smartphones as well. Nothing to do with the dumb-phone iOS, or even Android. That is the most important here.

Alan F... should know that Google CAN NOT do anything to Samsung or whoever else using android (open platform), no matter, how much intrigues iMedia try to do.

And do not forget that not only Samsung, but also Intel are there.

Yeah.. This design is flat and most probably. WP+Android+iOS hybrid device.

Easy son... Just probably the buttons\\\' look and nothing else. Overall UI, UX, and the more critical bread and butter kernel + OS + apps\\\' will be ahead of your so-called \\\"orig\\\" WP...IF it\'s done right anyways.

Metro inspired! but looks nice. seems that metro UI is the next design trend. Samsung copied Apple IOS before and now copying windows phone.

I think MS see's these copy cat OS's and figures it might give WP extra credibility.. I mean read the comments.. Almost every one has mention of WP... This is great for WP when put into perspective....

Nobody cares about bugged down closed source WP, Tizen is nothing like WP, i dont\' see no useless tiles flipping all over the place like a disco dance floor here, its more powerful, fully open source and highly customisable just like Android, so you WP fans should just STFU!....WP is even more boring than iOS, as the latter can be jailbroken.

41. microsoftnokiawin (Posts: 966; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)


lol calm your farm we're talking about the UI concept and WP is not bugged that's one advantage of being closed source lol

wp can be rommed too but it's harder 3rd of all Tizen isn't even full open source lol it's partially open source but it's under a flora licence which isn't open source!

Every new OS incorporates one or more feature from existing ones, that's how we move forward. Pad to tell you but your darling Android borrowed features and functions from Symbian and WinMo 6.

43. Ronny666 (Posts: 108; Member since: 08 Jun 2013)


Wow...there are so many WP8 guinea pigs here but just afraid of new Tizen? The only reason they are obsessed with WP8 is just because they cannot let go their old sentiments (Nokia). Come on, move on...

44. Pancholo (Posts: 377; Member since: 27 Feb 2012)


In the end, most people will hate on Tizen just because it is Samsung\'s child, not because of anything else.

Also, not every collection of colorful squares is WP-inspired. I\'m sorry, but WP fans try too hard with that one. Every OS is \"pretty\" at some point and when it comes to certain functionalities - that\'s how I see it.
