The arrival of the first Samsung with Tizen operating system is delayed

Although Samsung had announced the arrival of its first smartphone equipped with Tizen OS For this third quarter of the year, everything seems to indicate that the South Korean company will delay a couple of months more the landing of this new device equipped with the operating system based on Linux and sponsored by the Foundation of the same name and Silt, the non-profit association founded in 2007 by Motorota, DEC, NTT, Panasonic Mobile, Samsung and Vodafone.

As reported by the South Korean portal inews24, the Seoul-based firm is not entirely satisfied with the operation of Tizen and is working on a series of improvements such as increasing the number and quality of applications available for the operating system.

As for the first Samsung terminal equipped with Tizen OS, codenamed Redwood, it could appear with the model number GT-I8800 or GT-8805. Although there is still no official confirmation or news in this regard, the latest leaks pointed out that the smartphone will be equipped with an HD screen, Exynos 4412 processor and would be ready for 4G technology – or LTE -.

Samsung’s intentions as to whether it will launch its first smartphone with Tizen globally or choose to do so in a limited number of markets that can serve as a probe balloon prior to a mass launch are also unknown. What is true is that with this delay, the arrival date of the first Samsung equipped with the Linux-based operating system is getting closer and closer to 2014, the year in which the presentation of the devices with Tizen OS announced by the Japanese NEC and Fujitsu.

Like Firefox OS, the Tizen operating system bases its operation on the HMTL5 language, as well as other Web standards, and is presented as a completely free and open source environment, so that developers around the world can write applications or access the software development kit – SDK – at any time – whose latest versions can be downloaded from the Web page of the project since last May -.
