There were rumours for a Tizen smartphone for some time. Well, Samsung announced today that it would launch a Tizen based device later this year. The information is not clear about the regions where they will sell this new device, but some things were said about offering the new device in markets where Android devices don’t make significant sales. TizenIndonesia said unoficialy that the new device will be launched in May in Russia, and maybe followed by Brazil and other emergent countries. It seems that Samsung is working at the launching event for now.

A VP from Samsung announced last month at Reuters that the South Korean manufacturer will launch two Tizen based handsets this quarter. The first of the two handsets is named SM-Z9005 and it seems will be similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4. It’s price will be in the high end range. The second offer from Tizen, will be in mid range segment. So what do you think? Would you liken a smartphone based on Tizen? We will definitively want to try it !
