At Mobile World Congress, Samsung launched some devices with Tizen, One of them was Samsung Galaxy S4. From the photos from the event, it seems that the interface from Tizen is where similar to what Samsung deliveres with Android interfaces from ToucHWiz. This is a plus for Samsung, because customers who are used to TouchWiz interface will probably not see the difference between the new software and the old one. Samsung has managed to bring al kind of features with the new OS: a note-taking client, a messenger, a browser or a file manager, or the camera and multimedia features. All of those are similar to Android design.Tizen Association is also growing as it has 10 new members: Samsung, Vodafone, Intel, Huawei and others. In the last 12 months, the Association managed to gain 50 members from over the world. Samsung, besides Intel, is one of the biggest contributors to the platform, as they launched two Tizen based devices: the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, one of many that will come. This new trend doesn't mean that Samsung will use only Tizen. Samsung is still number one handsets vendor that have Android. Using Tizen, Samsung wants to bring a new world, where things are different from what Google is doing with Android.
