Tizen 4.0 development is in full swing as Samsung aims for September 2017 release

While the wait for the mobile version of Tizen 3.0 is still on, the launch of Tizen 4.0 is right around the corner as the development of the OS is in full swing for mobile devices, smart glasses and other wearables. The first beta release of Tizen 4.0 is expected to be available by June 2017 according to Tizen.org who have currently posted a Roadmap on their website about the development phase for Tizen.NET. According to the roadmap, “the first official version of Tizen .NET will be released in September 2017 as a part of Tizen 4.0.” which gives us a more clear hint on the development timeline of Tizen 4.0.
A brief introduction to some of the features of Tizen 4.0 will be discussed during the keynote session of the upcoming Tizen Developer’s Conference on May 16th. Currently, Tizen is being used in Samsung Z1, Z2 and Z3 smartphones with version 2.4 running on them, the Samsung Z4 will soon be launched and is expected to run on the more powerful Tizen 3.0 OS. Tizen 3.0 is a 64-bit OS that supports both ARM and x86 processors with support for 4K rendering and both image and speech recognition capabilities.
While the level of adoption for Tizen 3.0 didn’t hit huge numbers, Tizen 4.0 is expected to change that scene as it is being portrayed as a really powerful open source operating system with some incredible functionalities suited best for next generation of devices ranging from IoT, AI, Virtual/Augmented /Mixed Reality, etc. No doubt the upcoming Samsung Developer Conference (SDC), scheduled for later this year in October 2017, will focus on Tizen 4.0 and dive into all the different platforms that developers can create their apps for.
