    It’s an adjustable OS, which has its foundation over the Linux Kernel and implements the Linux API. Mobile Application developers, Device Manufactures, Individual Software developers, all can make perfect use of the Tizen OS.

    More than using it individually, the system requires a collaboration of device makers and the system coders to bring up an all-new utilization that is purpose-specific.

    It is written in HTML5, C, and C++

    This makes it easier for the developers to grab all the benefits of core programming languages used. HTML5 allows users to smoothly integrate the standard web features on mobile devices. The GNU C Library helps develop portable Tizen Apps.

    • It has still not become the first choice of the users.
    • It is in a developing stage and so there are performance backlogs.
    • People need innovation and Tizen is yet to prove itself.


    An operating system yet to take its place in the market may possibly take Android’s place in the future. We are in an era of advancement and Samsung has put forth a step to combine ideas and technology. Eyes on Tizen OS for the wearable and other devices!
