It is safe to assume that Samsung’s decision to go with Android certainly netted them more success when compared to their earlier attempts with Bada, Samsung’s own mobile platform. However according to recent reports via Digitimes, it has been suggested that Samsung has plans to launch a Galaxy smartphone that will be based on the Tizen platform. This will be a first considering that Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones have typically been based on Android.
While it is merely a rumor at this point in time, it isn’t that much of a stretch considering that Samsung had reportedly tested Tizen on its Galaxy S3, plus with Huawei looking to launch its own mobile operating system as a backup plan, such speculation isn’t exactly ludicrous. No word on when this alleged Tizen-based Galaxy smartphone will launch, but what do you guys think?
