Hello Tizen OS Enthusiasts. A Tizen version specially developed for low end phones will be released, called intuitivelly Tizen Lite.
Tizen OS requires 512 MB or RAM, 1 GB of ROM and support for HD / WVGA screens, while Tizen Lite only needs 256 MB of RAM, 512 MB of ROM and HVGA / QVGA screens. Tizen Lite may win some popularity, since Android 4.4 KitKat works on smartphones having at least 512 MB of RAM.
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.
