Not a lot of smartphone users may be familiar with the Tizen OS considering the fact that the market usually consists of only Android, iOS and Windows Mobile devices. However, Samsung isn't hindered from releasing phones running Tizen. This OS is used by the company for a variety of products including wearables, TVs, and Samsung's Z-series phone. Nevertheless, this mobile operating system hasn't shown up since the Z3 model that was launched last July.
Tizen-running Samsung Phone Coming Soon
Right now, as per GSM Arena, rumor has it that another Tizen Samsung phone is coming up and it will run Tizen 3.0. The said phone is said to have the internal name "Pride" and it is intended to be launched in developing countries like India, as per Sam Mobile. As of now, the phone's specs are still uncertain but there are reports saying that it could feature the rumored AI assistant of Samsung that will debut in the Galaxy S8. Additionally, there should also be a few improvements on the system considering that the current Tizen that's running on a few Samsung mobiles is in its 2.3.2 version.
