Samsung reportedly to launch Tizen smartphone next month in Russia

An unnamed Samsung official, who works out of Korea, says that the first Tizen powered smartphone will be launched next month in Russia.

Samsung’s plan is for other Tizen powered devices to connect with the smartphones.

As for what we can expect from the first Tizen driven handset, the official states that it has specs similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Yoon Han-kil, senior vice president for Samsung’s Product Strategy Team, earlier said that the company would release two Tizen powered smartphones during the current quarter. One would be a high-end model, while the other would be a mid-range device designed to attract buyers to the platform.

After the launch in Russia, the phone will head to Brazil and other developing countries.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”icon-users”][/signoff]
