Samsung Launches First #Tizen Smartphone – #SamsungZ

Samsung has announced the launch of a new smartphone based on its own operating system, in a step towards independence from the Google Android platform that dominates its popular handsets. The Samsung Z, which has been specially developed to run on the Tizen platform, will go on sale in Russia in the third quarter of this year before reaching other markets, Samsung said in a statement.

The new smartphone will be unveiled Tuesday at the Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco. The vast majority of Samsung’s devices, including its flagship Galaxy S smartphones, use the Android operating system. Samsung worked with Intel to develop the Linux-based Tizen platform which is open-sourced — meaning hardware manufacturers that adopt it can freely tinker with the interface.

Samsung made more than 30% of all smartphones sold in the world last year, nearly twice the share of its arch-rival Apple.
