Samsung made waves at the MWC 2014 when they announced they were dropping Android in favor of Tizen for the next generation of Gear devices.

Samsung announces Tizen-powered Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches


Quote:

Mobile World Congress takes place this week in Spain and Samsung is getting things started with their Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatch announcement ahead of their Samsung Unpacked 5 event.

These two new watches are powered by Tizen rather than Android, but still look to have the same functionality and rather poor battery life of the current Galaxy Gear.

...

Specifications for the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo include the following:

1.63 inch Super AMOLED 320x320 pixels resolution display
1 GHz dual core processor
Tizen powered mobile operating system
2 megapixel camera on the Gear 2
Bluetooth 4 low energy, Infrared, heart rate sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope
512 MB RAM and 4GB internal storage capacity
300 mAh battery
Gear 2 dimensions: 36.9 x 58.4x 10.0 mm and weight of 68 grams
Gear 2 Neo dimensions: 37.9 x 58.8 x 10.0mm and weight of 55 grams

That's a big news. So far it is smartwatches only, but it's not unlikely that they will follow with smartphones soon. I guess that they'll gradually shift from Android to Tizen in all their devices. A huge blow for Google.

As for Tizen itself, whereas Qt is not integrated by default and for now there is only a 'community port' of it for that platform, I hope that the situation will change so that Qt (even though additionally installable) will become one of officially supported development platforms and Qt applications will be accepted in the Samsung app store. This would soon open new perspectives for Qt developers...
