The dust hasn’t even settled from Samsung’s (005930) larger-than-life Galaxy S 4 debut, but the company is already talking about its future plans. Samsung’s EVP of mobile Lee Young Hee told Bloomberg in an interview on Thursday night that the company intends to release another new flagship smartphone in the third quarter this year — but it won’t run Android. “The Tizen phone will be out in August or September, and this will be in the high-end category,” Lee told Bloomberg. “The device will be the best product equipped with the best specifications.” Chase Perrin, a Tizen Association representative, added that there will be thousands of apps available when the first Tizen smartphone launches.
