Samsung devices are depending on Android OS to power their devices but now Samsung which was working on their own OS names Tinizen OS. Samsung has been testing its OS and is going to release a Tinizen powered device in India this Diwali and this is not going to be a high end and high priced device but a mid range device.
Samsung has said that Tinizen OS can function smoothly without any Lag even on 256 MB RAM. But Samsung is going to release its first device running on Tinizen OS which will sport a 2GB RAM and we this might affect Android OS as Samsung is the company which sells most devices running on Android OS.
Samsung is having a hard time getting hold on the sub Rs. 10000 market in India which is powered by devices from Micromax, Nokia, Spice, Karbonn and after the launch of Android One devices there is stiff competition from Redmi 1S as well so hope Samsung releases its latest device which is properly priced and has some good specifications.
Samsung with the Touchwiz skin on Android devices has some experience is OS category but having a complete OS to compete with big companies will be a big challenge. In Android Samsung devices comes with pre installed apps like Browser, ChatOn, Calender, Notes and other such apps all of which can be expected in the new Tinizen OS.
The Smartphone running on Tinizen Os called the Samsung Z comes with a 4.8 in HD display along with a 2.3 GHZ Quadcore Snapdragon processor and hacing 2GB of RAM the OS will be Tinizen 2.2.1. The device comes with 16GB of internal memory which can be expanded using microSD card support. It has 8MP of Rear or Primary camera with LED flash along with 2MP front facing camera. The battery support comes from a 2600mAh battery which will give good battery life owing to the fact that the OS does not put much pressure on the processor and RAM.
The pricing of the device is not yet known but it might be launched this Diwali and if it turns out to be a device with decent specs at the right price will be a game changer for Samsung in the Mid Range and Budget devices category.
