First Tizen OS smartphones (code)named


The internet saw a piece of leaked information detailing the first two Tizen OS devices by Samsung. The information contains their codenames – Samsung l8805 Redwood and l8800 Melius.  Redwood is marked as a high-end model with 4G LTE networking, and Melius is a mid-range smartphone with 3G network. Both run Tizen OS 2.1 codename Magnolia.

This March Bloomberg published some cuts from an interview with Samsung’s VP of Mobile technology who said that the first Tizen smartphones will be on the market in August or September. More specifically, they will arrive in the US first, and in Europe after. Huawei will make Tizen smartphones too, but anything about them is yet to surface.
