Yesterday, we heard a rumor that Samsung is planning to launch its first Tizen-based device in Russia and India in the coming weeks. It also mentioned the event will coincide with the Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco which will take place in early June.
According to a new tweet from @evleaks, Samsung is working on four Tizen-based smartphones, which will launch in the coming months.
The prolific leaker didn’t give out any specific details about the devices, what they will offer or any other information, except their codenames. According to @evleaks, Samsung has four Tizen devices in works with model numbers SM-Z500, SM-Z700, SM-Z900, and SM-Z910.
Samsung is said to be working on its own smartphone operating system to compete with Google in the competitive smartphone industry. We’ve yet to see a device running Samsung’s in-house operating system, but it has already made its first appearance in the company’s Gear smartwatches.
Samsung is rumored to hold an event in Moscow in the coming weeks. We’ll update you as soon as Samsung officially unveils a handset running on its own operating system.
