Already in 2014, Samsung introduced its first smartphone, which is powered by the proprietary mobile operating system Tizen instead of the Android operating system. The novelty was prepared in cooperation with Intel and was very powerful for those times. The Samsung Z smartphone is equipped with a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 2GB system memory and 16GB built-in memory.
Although Samsung Tizen mobile operating system was a hit initially, its popularity has waned overnight in recent years. It’s no surprise, then, that Samsung recently shut down an entire online store dedicated to devices running the Tizen operating system. In practical terms, this means that the Tizen mobile operating system will soon start counting down to the permanent hunting grounds and become a part of history.
Samsung has shown that it has ditched the Tizen operating system by setting up the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic smartwatches. Namely, the computer giant installed Wear OS on it instead of Tizen. Tizen OS will still be supported by Samsung for some time, but the truth is that the system will soon become a part of history.
