Tizen is not a platform for smartphones, Samsung wants whoever connect all its products. few months ago, after the Mobile World Congress in Gizmodo we talked about the adaptation to Tizen Samsung started with the redesign of TouchWiz on the Galaxy S5.

In the name “Samsung Z” has disappeared brand “Galaxy” about Samsung smartphones that are used to seeing. The reason is simple: “Galaxy” is a trademark assigned to devices with Android. In fact, the “why Samsung chose Galaxy” some of the reasons were clearly aimed at Google platform. Now have to wait to see the evolution of Tizen, and especially in what devices appears.
