It is not free will that we are talking about here. Samsung has encountered a few difficulties in the progress of launching the Tizen phone, so that is why the company had to postpone it for the moment.

Tizen is an operating system developed by Samsung Electronics and the first phone running on this system was planned to be released this summer, but now it seems that the controversial phone will have to wait until the end of this year, maybe it will be announced in September at the IFA trade show, as the korean site i24news suggests.

If this Tizen innovation turns out to work for Samsung, this could mean that the company will let go of its strong link to Google, the Android operating system and focus only on their own Tizen operating system, but that will take a long way, since every important device made by Samsung right now is working on Android.

The alleged drawback due to which the launch has been delayed seems to have something to do with the app store, thus the team working on Tizen is struggling to collect developer support.

Even though it might take a while and a little sweat from Samsung to compete with operating systems from Blackberry and Windows to Android and iOS, the Tizen handsets are expected to be advanced high performance devices, taking into account Samsung’s ability to build innovative reliable products along with their ability in terms of marketing.
