Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Gear rumored to feature Tizen OS

Samsung rumored to be using Tizen on its upcoming Galaxy Gear smartwatch (KRX:005930)

Samsung is expected to unveil a refreshed Galaxy Gear smartwatch at Mobile World Congress later this month, but the latest rumors hitting the Internet state that the new wearable device will feature Samsung's much-touted Tizen operating system.




Tizen is in a perfect position to land itself on smartwatches, with Samsung being one of the development partners on the OS. Samsung can scale Tizen down in terms of its feature set to better accommodate the new Galaxy Gear. If Samsung does go down this road, it won't mean it's abandoning its relationship with Google over Android, but it is spreading its wings and not using a full-blown mobile OS on a device that simply doesn't need it.
