Hello Linux Geeksters. As a reminder, Tizen is an Android compatible, Linux based system, developed by Samsung in collaboration with Intel and sponsored by the Linux Foundation. Despite the fact that Samsung is involved, the first tablet running on Tizen has been created by a japanese manufacturer and aims to provide both documentation and a testing environment for developers and Tizen enthusiasts. While Samsung Redwood Z9005 (the first Tizen based smartphone developed by Samsung) has been announced, a Tizen Running Samsung Galaxy S4 may be released in 2014.
Today, Samsung has announced at the Tizen Developer Summit in Seoul that their Samsung NX-300M Camera is running Tizen. The camera is already available for ordering, at about $839.
Hardware specs of Samsung NX-300M Camera:
- 3.31 ” AMOLED touch display that rotates to 180 degrees
- 20.3 Megapixel APS-C sensor capable of shooting at 9fps continuous
- ISO range: 100-25.600
Since Tizen 3.0 is scheduled for the 3rd quarter of 2014, most probably all the Tizen devices released until that date will be using a version of Tizen 2.2.
Tizen 3.0 will come with important changes, including: support for 64 bit and multiple accounts, a 3D UI framework for better looking and performing apps and big performance improvements.
