Samsung takes Tzien Store global

The UK is one of the 182 countries now able to access the Store.

By CBR Staff Writer

Samsung’s Tizen Store is expanding from India and Bangladesh to 182 countries including the UK, US and China.

The Tizen OS is Samsung’s attempt to break the monopoly of Android, which powers high-end as well as low-end smartphones.

The first Tizen powered smartphone was dubbed the Samsung Z1, retailing for less than $100 and boasting Dual-SIM capabilities, a 10.08 cm display, and 1.2GHz of processor speed.

The Wall Street Journal cited sources familiar with the matter as saying that the company is eyeing markets where its Tizen powered phone has shown some initial signs interest.

Apart from smartphones, the operating system has also powered four smartwatches including the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Gear 2 Neo which, according to the South Korean electronics maker, is designed to provide consumers with increased connectivity, customisation, and control.

The OS has also been used in the company’s 65-inch SMART TV which was unveiled during last year’s Samsung Open Source Conference in Seoul.
