Samsung Tizen 3.0 coming in September

The new version of this mobile operating system is now 64-bit compatible and might launch powering the Gear S3 smartwatch.

Although we spotted the Samsung Z3 running what appeared to be an early build of Tizen 3.0 back in 2015, this new version of Samsung's mobile operating system is not official yet. Fortunately, Samsung unveiled that the next major refresh of its Tizen operating system is scheduled to show up in September. However, it is not known yet where and when will that happen, but the month should be enough for now.

What we know is that IFA 2016 will take place in September, so making the announcement there sounds like a logical choice for Samsung. Tizen 3.0 promises to launch with 64-bit and Vulkan API support, but it can also handle 4K resolution, multiple users, voice control. Tizen 3.0 would also offer inbuilt privacy and virus protection.

Although Tizen is widely used by Samsung to power wearables and TV sets, there are also a few Tizen smartphones on the market. Unfortunately, they failed to gain a significant market share so far and are only available in a few emerging markets. Since a beta version of Tizen 3.0 is expected in July, Samsung Z1 and Samsung Z3 should get a preview version this summer as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
