The Chinese telecommunications giant has no plans to build Tizen-based phones, an executive tells The Wall Street Journal.
Running the mobile giant's own homegrown operating system, the Samsung Z is facing yet another launch delay.
Samsung's first Tizen phone, expected to launch this week, was a no-show in Moscow.
Company has been pushing the open-source OS -- an Android alternative -- in everything from wearables to TVs.
At the Tizen Developer Conference, Samsung unveiled a prototype television set running the open-source Tizen operating system.
The Samsung Z is the company's first smartphone running the open-source Tizen operating system.
A new software update for the first-generation Samsung smartwatch removes all traces of Android in favor of the company's in-house OS.
Handset based on Samsung's homegrown mobile operating system will be launched at an Unpacked event in Moscow in the coming weeks, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The company's first handset will be a high-end model, while the second will be offered at a midrange price tag, according to a new report.
If you're a developer eagerly waiting to port your apps to Tizen OS the moment a phone ever gets released, there's an easy way to do so.
