Samsung's Tizen powered phone unveiled at MWC event
It's no surprise that the Tizen Association announced on Sunday that it is offering a version of the operating system for wearables. After all, Samsung just introduced two new smartwatches that employ Tizen. But there also is a version of the software that is now being designed for televisions. Back in September, Boo-Keun Yoon, co-CEO of Samsung, said to expect Tizen powered televisions to hit the market sometime this year.

Today's announcement increases the number of different versions of Tizen to four. Besides the new television and wearables builds of Tizen, there had been the version used for smartphones and one used for vehicle information and entertainment systems.

Besides making the announcement, at today's Tizen Association event at MWC, Samsung's long awaited Tizen powered handset was revealed. Oft-delayed, and at one point nearly left for dead on the side of the mobile device highway, the phone is now on display in Barcelona. Check it out by viewing the slideshow below.
