Samsung has been working on Tizen, its in-house mobile operating system for a while now, and we see a new leak on the OS every month or so. This month actual images of a Samsung phone running Tizen surfaced via a user agent profile on Samsung's own website.


The user agent profile is for the GT-i8805 running on Tizen 2.1 with a Cortex A9 processor, screen resolution of 720x1280 and LTE connectivity. The device is said to be in the mid-range category, which debunks claims made by Samsung's Lee Young-Hee who said the GT-i8805 would be a high-end smartphone back in March.


The leaked images show a silhouetted Samsung branded phone with the screen listing the codename "Redwood" and the OS being Tizen 2.1.0. Samsung S Voice is also seen in one of the images which could lend credit to rumors that Tizen is just a heavily skinned version of Android.
