Samsung has announced the first device that runs its new Tizen mobile OS, it is the Samsung NX300M camera, which is already available in Samsung’s home country.
The Samsung NX300M camera launched back in October in South Korea, although at the time Samsung did not reveal that the camera runs Tizen when the handset was announced.
The NX300M camera runs on Samsung’s Tizen Camera Platform, the platform is designed to give faster booting and enhanced performance on the camera.
Samsung have also said that their first Tizen smartphones are expected to launch next year, with some expected to launch in the first quarter of 2014.
The first Tizen devices will apparently run Tizen 2.2.1, although Samsung is working on a new version of the OS, Tizen 3.0 which is expected to launch some time later in the year, possibly in quarter three of 2013.
It will be interesting to see what Samsung’s first Tizen smartphones are like, we already know that their user interface will be similar to the UI on Samsung’s Galaxy range of handsets.
Samsung has had great success with their Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets running Android, it will be interesting to see if their new Tizen mobile platform becomes popular.
