Tizen an open source platform similar to Android and Samsung already known to work with Intel in creating a viable alternative to the Android operating system and reduce its excessive dependence on Google. Tizen supports multiple processing platforms such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, televisions and vehicle infotainment systems.
In the past Tizen was known as LiMo OS and Samsung therefore decided to join Intel and take it forward by l. Even the Linux Foundation discarded Maemo last year in favor of Tizen, which became the real Linux-based mobile operating system. Samsung became a Platinum member of the Linux community by donating them around $ 500K.
The success of any smartphone depends on the following hierarchy and all these components should be stronger in order to strengthen the entire chain. We discuss Tizen in each of these areas and try to understand if Tizen can compete with other stronger platforms.

3. App + ecosystem compatibility
4. Distinctive factors
5. Recognition and brand value
Intel's presence in the creation of a smartphone operating system clearly means that they want to even enter the mobile chip business.
They entered the market for smartphone and tablet processors last year with Intel Atom processors based on their x86 architecture. They are connected to Lenovo, Lava and Motorola but hardly a handful of phones have been equipped by their processors. The main reason that Intel's SoC was not widely used was the lack of integrated 3G and average graphics performance. Furthermore, there was not enough support for the x86 architecture in the Android source code in general. Intel had to do all the coding and make the contribution to make Android work on x86 architecture. Furthermore, Intel has almost no market share in the world's largest smartphone market; UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. But their upcoming Cloverfield + SoC is said to be powerful, powerful and efficient.
Elliot Garbus of Intel stated that " Having a new platform creates a new opportunity "and he was clearly talking about Tizen.
Samsung famous for the creation of excellent screens and almost all the components you know used for creating smartphones. They even make their processors under the name of "Exynos" which are on tiptoe with its competitors in terms of performance. But they can't make them in enough numbers to be equipped in all Samsung phones sold. Intel will help them with their experience in creating energy-efficient chips despite being quite powerful and, more importantly, in sufficient numbers.
Operating system and background services
Most of the native components of the Tizen operating system have been developed under the Flora license which does not comply with the requirements of the open source initiative. The Bada OS SDK was created to be the Tizen application development SDK. But neither Samsung, nor Intel nor the Linux foundation are known to build commercially successful software platforms. Let's take a look at the fundamental difference between the various software operating systems for smartphones.
|Application Store||Not yet announced||Google Play Store||App Store||Windows Phone Marketplace|
The platform war cannot be won only with the help of the operating system. Strong support services such as e-mail services, instant messaging, geolocation-based services, etc. They are a necessity to complete the entire ecosystem. Even the world's largest technology brand, Apple failed to satisfy consumers with their cloud and mapping services.
Samsung has its own instant messaging and cloud services (ChatOn and S-Cloud), also compatible with other platforms. But they still have no idea of Maps and e-mail services.
App and Ecosystem
But no open mobile operating system other than Android ever existed. If you take a look at recent operating systems for open source smartphones, whether it's Maemo or MeeGo, the main reason why consumers didn't choose them was the lack of interest in developers and the collection of rich games. Building an operating system is easier than evolving and keeping it at a generous pace. Furthermore, keeping it commercially successful is also a daunting task as consumers' minds move very quickly towards new and more exciting things.
The ecosystem created by Apple, Google and Microsoft also offers users to download and use music, movies, books and digital radio services. Samsung currently offers these multimedia and entertainment resources in their smartphones, but they are very limited. There are no multiplayer game modes and points similar to Google Play Games or Apple Game Center.
In addition to regular features, each platform needs its own distinctive feature that is not available with competitors. Google has Live Widgets while Apple has Siri and both are useful in different scenarios. The only distinctive factor of Tizen that is even more customizable than Android. Carriers can live their dream of being more than a stupid pipe and increase their earnings as Tizen allows carriers to customize it and be more integrated with the operating system according to their needs (which is very similar to Mozilla Firefox OS).
The MD of the Strategic Department, NTT Docomo, Kiyohito Nagata said: " If we become a stupid pipe, our income will continue to fall ". also a member of the Tizen community.
Brand recognition and value
Both Samsung and Intel enjoy a notoriously good brand image all over the world. But somehow, they can't defeat Google, Apple or Microsoft when it comes to smartphones. Although, in Asia, Samsung is more powerful than a brand and recognizable compared to Google, Microsoft and Apple thanks to their presence in low-end mobile phones, televisions and virtually every category of appliances and appliances. Samsung also has mobile phones in almost every conceivable price range; just take a look at this Samsung price list to confirm.
Nagata also stated: "We want to launch and create our future children", on Tizen as an alternative alternative to Android. According to him, Android phones would continue as a high-end option while Tizen would be the choice to upgrade from basic phones.
So overall, Tizen can start as an alternative to Mozilla Firefox OS with low-end smartphones and improve its market presence in a couple of years. After that, even the biggest players like Apple iPhone and Android devices can hit. Right now, Tizen can't even get closer to bigger players, and Samsung would definitely want to introduce it to low-priced smartphones.
