Looks like Samsung has been trying to get rid of Android OS. The latest screenshots of the Tizen running Samsung Galaxy S3 being spotted online is just another piece of evidence hinting towards the daring move. Not only that but even Galaxy S4 was spotted with the same OS before. However, even if Samsung does opt Tizen over Android over the coming months, it wouldn't be a surprise to many, as most who have been observing Samsung closely, knows that it has already been trying out a lot of other platforms lately.
The south Korean Giant has already tried thier hands with Windows Phone and their very own Bada OS as well. But Somehow, the manufacturer has not stepped away from Android.
However, the company is anyhow building the new versions of its home brewed mobile operating system, the new Tizen 3.0 OS that is visible in the leaked screenshots. Sadly, the new leaks don't show any major changes in the user interface. But one can see a mix of Windows Phone and Bada OS along with Android's lockscreen clock.
Earlier this year, Samsung had promised to release "multiple Tizen devices" this year but looks like Tizen is still under development phase. But there is still hope for Samsung to come up with Tizen running devices by the end of this year. The OS is said to feature on phones, tablets, cameras, appliances and everything in between.
For those who doesn't know, Tizen is an open sourced Linux-based operating system which is jointly being developed by Samsung and Intel (and currently exists within the confines of the Linux Foundation). If taken a closer look the two companies have been taking bits and pieces of their own operating systems: Bada and Meego in crafting this OS.
