Samsung Tizen smartphone to take centre stage at MWC 2014
Samsung's first Tizen smartphone has been leaked ahead of MWC 2014 reveal
Samsung have already confirmed that they'll be showcasing their first Tizen devices at Mobile World Congress next month.
Details have now been leaked about one of the smartphones running on Samsung's proprietary operating system, which will be presumably unveiled at next months event in Barcelona.
An image of the smartphone, code-named the ZEQ9000, was published on a Korean website. It adopts a classic Samsung design and will apparently be a little smaller than Samsung's 5-inch Galaxy S4.
According to the source it'll be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and have a 4.8 inch HD display - so we're not looking at an affordable smartphone here. Probably something sitting in the mid-range smartphone price bracket.
That's all we have for you at the moment, but as soon as we get any fresh information about new Samsung devices you'll be the first to know.
What's this Tizen then?
Samsung Tizen is a new platform being jointly developed by Samsung and Intel. It's based on the Linux platform meaning it's totally opening source, so we could see other manufacturers launching smartphones powered by Tizen.
Samsung have developed the platform to remove their relliance on Google's Android platform, which is understandable given that Google themselves have now entered the hardware market with their range of Nexus mobile devices.
