Samsung launches first Tizen phone

samsungSamsung Electronics has launched the world’s first smartphone powered by the Tizen operating system.

The Samsung Z will go on sale in Russia in the July-to-September quarter.

Most Samsung phones currently use the Android platform, but the South Korean firm has been working with chipmaker Intel to develop Tizen as an alternative operating system.

It is seen as a way to make Samsung less dependent on Android’s developer, Google.

“Samsung is committed to enhancing the mobile experience of consumers with innovation that is both personal and unique to their needs,” said DJ Lee, Samsung Electronics’ president of mobile communications.

The company will show off the phone at the Tizen Developer Conference, being held this week in San Francisco.

It did not disclose the device’s price.
