Following the release of the second preview of Tizen .NET, it’s been revealed that Samsung has accelerated development of Tizen 4.0 so that it can meet its self-imposed deadline of a September launch. The latest version of the OS won’t be exclusive to mobile devices, though. It’ll also be compatible with home appliances, IoT, wearables and Smart TVs.
According to a roadmap posted on the Tizen Developers forum, it looks like we’ll see the third preview of Tizen .NET go up for download next month, followed by the first beta build of Tizen 4.0 in June. At present, it’s unclear whether it’ll be an opt-in program, similar to one Samsung held for customers wanting to try out Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge ahead of its official release.
