Earlier today, we did mention a possible rumor of how Samsung could very well introduce the first Tizen device later this coming October, and here we are with additional word on such a possibility. In fact, I guess one would say that this is closer to a “confirmation” than anything else, as a bug report page on the Tizen project website did mention that Japanese mobile carrier NTT DoCoMo already has a Tizen smartphone in the pipeline which carries the model number SGH-N055. Having said that, don’t you think that it is rather strange for Samsung to rely on “SGH” as a model number for a Tizen device? The device in question was mentioned by a user on a bug report’s comments section, touting that the “SGH-N055, docomo version, does not have this bug,” which further points out that this particular device is already being tested by third parties.
Well, chances are pretty high that we will most probably be able to check out the SGH-N055 get announced at Samsung’s developer conference, with a possible launch date sometime happening in November or December, although one would not rule out the rumored October release date, either. So far, specifications and hardware bits and pieces of the Tizen device remains unknown.
