Samsung Pride with Tizen 3.0 in the works

The handset also known as SM-Z250F is expected to become the first smartphone to run Tizen 3.0 out of the box and is known internally as Pride. It is anticipated to launch in the same areas as the Samsung Z2.

Samsung Z2 has been around for a while, and it looks like it will soon get a more attractive successor currently known as SM-Z250F. This handset promises to bring voice control to the in-house Linux-based mobile operating system of the South Korean giant known as Tizen as well.

According to an exclusive report by SamMobile, Samsung "has just started the development of its first smartphone running Tizen 3.0 operating system." The same source reveals that Samsung SM-Z250F is internally known as "Pride" for now, but there are no technical details and features mentioned yet. 

With Firefox OS gone and the Ubuntu-powered phones still virtually unknown to the public, it would be good for Samsung to bring Tizen to more markets. Unfortunately, it may take a long time for this to finally happen, but Samsung Pride might become a step in the right direction.

Samsung currently uses Tizen on a wide range of products, including TV sets, fitness trackers, and smartwatches. The information available at this stage claims that Samsung SM-Z250F would only come to the countries where Samsung Z2 has landed as well.
