Samsung has a lot to live up to in 2013 with the Galaxy Note 3 and S4, which would be thanks to the success they saw last year and the expectations by its fans for this year. We already touched on the need for Samsung to get the Galaxy Note 3 spot-on, especially when it comes to better storage sizes that consist of much more than only 16GB. Some analysts and tech blogs are wondering about Samsung’s plans for Tizen, a new mobile OS based on Linux, and if it would arrive on the flagship smartphone rather than Key Lime Pie?
Initial responses from users about Key Lime Pie vs. Tizen have been very clear, and the majority of people feel that Google Android has a better ecosystem. It is worth noting that Google play hadn’t been born overnight and has taken some time to get right, which now includes thousands of apps and Tizen has a lot to do before it can offer a real choice.
Android Jelly Bean is one of the best updates from Google and includes a lot of welcomed improvements, so naturally users are looking forward to seeing Key Lime Pie announced at Google IO in May. There is also hope that this update arrives on Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 in a timely manner, rather than a long wait as seen with the S3. The idea of Tizen is a BIG no-go for most people, and the fact that these phones will most probably feature a different name also comes into play.
This article, by Phones Review, also touches on the possibility of Key Lime Pie or Tizen for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and S4, but the reality seems that Samsung wouldn’t risk such a big change in 2013 for their flagship smartphone and phablet device. What OS do you want to see on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and S4, and are you happy to wait a while for Key Lime Pie to arrive after the release of these next-gen phones?
If you want to understand a lot more about TIZEN OS then you should watch the conference video below from earlier in 2012.
