First Tizen Phone Appears In Hands-On Video

/ 7 years ago


There has been no news for quite some time about the new Tizen operating system and supported handsets. It turns out that some concrete footage of Tizen running on a fully fledged Smartphone just surfaced on YouTube.

The handset has the model number Z9005 attributed to it, and in the video below it seems that the first Tizen phone has been given a full hands-on treatment, detailing the software and features found in the Operating System and we can also get a brief glyphs of the handset as well. To be noted is that Samsung has implemented its trademark TouchWiz UI. The circular icons however, are reminiscent of Nokia-Intel Operating System MeeGo found on the Nokia N9 handset.


The Z9005 handset allegedly features hardware specifications very similar to the Galaxy S III when compared and also seems to have many features that we already see in Galaxy smartphones running on Android Operating System. However all things indicate that the handset is a developer-only device and the very first Tizen powered consumer phones will debut in CES 2014.
