Sighting-Tizen-3.0 UI-Samsung-Galaxy-S4-2-1
Tizen 3.0 Operating System is still very much under development at the moment and is scheduled to launch early 2014. Pictures have surfaced showing the Tizen User Interface (UI) running on a Samsung Galaxy S4. We can see that the UI is quite flat, much like Windows Phone Metro but thankfully the similarities end there. Notifications can display themselves on the lockscreen as well as application controls such as a music player.

Its great to see that Tizen is being developed on current hardware as Samsung did state that they would be releasing a high end model. Could the new model be based on S4 hardware? Hopefully we will see soon enough ….

      Samsung is doing this to try to become less dependent on Google. Not sure if that is a doable. We’ll all see.

    Windows Phone ripoff, Microsoft should sue them.

      Thats exactly the first thing i thought of!!!! Damn Samsung doesnt know when to stop copying.

      Sooooooooo, because there are no drop-shadows on the buttons, they are copying the metro-style? Seriously? I got news for you – everybody had flat before there were 2D-style buttons. Even before mobile phones.
