Interestingly, it seems that all bada developments haven’t just vanished into thin air and the Tizen platform borrows a lot of elements from bada devices. The delays in releasing the first smartphones with the new operating system however might show that Samsung is hesitant to fully back up the platform, and might be waiting on the rumored first 22nm Intel Merrifield chips, said to be coming in 2013.
So far, Samsung’s Tizen flagship is allegedly looking just like the recently launched Galaxy S7652 Duos, a 4-inch Galaxy S III look-alike. The screen is a 4-inch SuperAMOLED, but with different colors for the body and there is a 8-megapixel camera, NFC and a 1,550mAh battery, on average lasting for around two days. This current configuration however might look dated around February, so chances are that Samsung will rework this device.
The biggest astonishment however might turn out to be that Samsung has quietly ported its bada efforts into Tizen, effectively reworking the fourth-generation bada-based Wave smartphones into Tizen devices.
What do you expect of Tizen, does it really stand a chance in today’s Android/iOS duopoly?
