Now according to a the website Tizen Indonesia, Samsung will release their first Tizen device in Russia next month, this information is according to a "Samsung Official in Korea". We have already had Tizen Smart Cameras and Smart Watches released, and the release of the Tizen Smartphone is seen as an important component in connecting the Tizen ecosystem. We will also see Tizen TV and a Tizen washing machine joining the ecosystem this year.
The hardware and design of the Samsung Tizen Smartphone is apparently on the same lines as the Samsung Galaxy S4. Russia is seen as an important market to Samsung, as the smartphone market still quite young and can be developed further, as well as in Brazil and other developing markets.
