Samsung will be launching its new phone operating on the new Tizen platform, the Samsung Z, tomorrow.
Samsung is showing off the phone at its Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco starting June 3, according to the Seoul-based company. Samsung began developing the Tizen platform, an open-source project developed by the the South Korean manufacturer to develop its own software and services rather than rely on Google technology and upgrades for Android.
“Samsung is committed to enhancing the mobile experience of consumers with innovation that is both personal and unique to their needs,” DJ Lee, Samsung's president and head of global sales & marketing for mobile, said in a statement. “The Samsung Z integrates the power and adaptability of the Tizen platform, enabling users to browse the web faster and utilize applications more effectively.”
