Samsung to unveil Tizen devices just before World Mobile Congress in February 2014

ByinLeaks & Rumors | December 23, 2013

TizenRemember when back in May we discussed Samsung’s plans to release Tizen-powered smartphone codenamed Redwood? The phone was expected to be released in early fall this year. Fall has come and gone and the year is almost over but a Tizen phone is still nowhere to be seen. Don’t loose hope, though. Samsung has not given up on Tizen phones. In fact, we might be treated to a fresh batch of news on the subject pretty soon.

Tizen devices to be revealed on February 23rd

Tizen SmartphoneHow do we know? Because the company sent out invitations to press event that will take place February 23rd, the day before the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona begins.

The invitation does not include any specifics besides a promise of “an exclusive sneak preview of the newest Tizen devices as well as an opportunity to learn about the major milestones that the Tizen project has hit since last year’s event.”

If we wanted to be analytical, we would point to the choice of the word “devices” instead of “smartphones”, which might mean that the device will not be a “commercial-focused smartphone” after all.

On the other hand, Tizen-running commercial smartphone would be a logical consequence of Samsung supporting Tizen so vigorously. Besides, World Mobile Congress is all about commercial devices and anything other that that would not make much sense. It might still be months before we see a Tizen phone on a store shelf, but hopefully after the WMC we will at least know what to expect.
