Samsung’s quest to free itself from Android kicks off in February

Samsung Android Rival OS Preview Event

Pushing forward despite a few major setbacks, Samsung will preview its lineup of Tizen smartphones in Barcelona on February 23rd, the day before Mobile World Congress begins. ZDNet Korea has obtained a copy of the invitation, which promises attendees “an exclusive sneak preview of the newest Tizen devices” and information about how Tizen has evolved since last year. Although the operating system that threatens to rival Android might not arrive in 2014, Samsung is fully aware that the longer it delays showing off Tizen, the more potential converts it will lose. Tizen now lacks the support of NTT DoCoMo, Japan’s largest carrier, but SK Telecom, Korea Telecom, and LG U+ will all be in attendance at the event showing their support for the latest smartphone OS.
