Samsung teases major new features in the upcoming Tizen 3.0 OS

Samsung's Tizen OS does seem to make waves everywhere it's available across the globe, even if that means just several emerging markets. The more recent Tizen-related news is the announcement of a new smartphone, the Samsung Z4.

The new Samsung Z4 would be the first smartphone to ship with Tizen 3.0 operating system right out of the box. Tizen 3.0 OS hasn't been officially released for any other smartphones yet, but its launch seems imminent.

To keep the momentum after the unveil of the Z4, Samsung is now teasing some of the new features coming with Tizen 3.0 OS at some point in the coming weeks.

First of all, Tizen 3.0 contains a new set of themes, which are inspired by the global and Indian trends of colors. The icons have been redesigned to be minimal and lighter, while the widgets layout will feature a modern look, much different than the traditional design.

New wallpapers will be added in the form of “My Galaxy Stories,” an app that will automatically change the wallpapers every third time the screen is turned on.

Camera beauty mode will provide users with a new option to enhance the selfies or the pictures taken with the primary camera. Moreover, you will be able to choose the enhancements while capturing the photos.

With Tizen 3.0, users will be able to create separate profiles for SIM dependent apps and manage them on your single Tizen-powered smartphone. Another interesting new feature added by Samsung is voice interactions, which will allow users to take advantage of voice commands to perform faster actions on the phone.

Since Samsung has already started to tease most of the new features in the Tizen 3.0 OS, we expect the South Korean company to push it as an update to all compatible smartphones very soon.

I'd get it for the right price. Android comes out with a lot of security problems while still locking their os down and blocking people that want to hack or mod their phone and have the Android goodies. They are taking freedom away with little in return.

Tizen has been rated the most unsecure OS currently and has been reviewed as neglecting many commonplace security measures that are found in other OS's. Not sure why you would want it in a flagship phone. Samsung would need to make the OS more secure before I would ever consider buying it as a replacement for my most important device.

Yeah, Samsung needs to secure it, improve it before making the OS more mainstream.

Tizen needs its own identity and I think Samsung wants to use TW interface since many are already used to it but it makes it look like a direct android rip off.

Don't neglect the Gear S3. Hook it up too.

I really wish Tizen the best because we need another major OS on the market. Just don't make it look like Android, why would anybody want to use Tizen if it looks like a copy of another OS. Do your thing Samsung and finally make a flagship with this OS, low end phones don't attract attention as flagships and you need to get people's attention.
