We had the news Samsung is working on TIZEN OS and it might be ported in some of the the high end devices. Now we can confirm that yes, Samsung has ported TIZEN in international variant of Galaxy S3 I9300. The device is just spotted when it reaches for Wi-Fi interoperability certification. It does not seem to be a regular test Samsung is performing with Galaxy S3 hardware. In that case, the device would not have been sent for Wi-Fi certification. We can assume a new Galaxy S3 is coming soon loaded with TIZEN. According to rumor Samsung is looking to merge Bada and TIZEN together to create a new platform for low-mid range smartphones. In that case, we have to wait for few more months as Samsung is reluctant to release the first TIZEN device this year.
Samsung GT-I9300_TIZEN Coming Soon
GT-I9300_TIZEN will support dual band Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz), Wi-Fi Direct and Passpoint. Hopefully, next year in MWC Samsung will unveil this new OS and the handset together.
