Tizen 3.0 Features & Tizen Lite Unveiled

We have just learned about NX300M camera, the first Tizen device, based on Tizen 1.0, but development of the new mobile operating systems is still going on, and the key features of Tizen 3.0, as well as Tizen Lite, Tizen for low-end hardware, have been unveiled at the Tizen Developer Summit on 11th of November 2013.

Tizen_3.0_FeaturesTizen 3.0 features:

  • Update core OS and toolchain
  • Multiple user support
  • 64-bit Intel and ARM architecture support
  • (New) 3D UI Framework with 3D rendering for 2D and 3D objects in 3D, and a dynamic animation library
  • WayLand based compositor replacing X
  • Crosswalk – HTML5 based application runtime based on Chromium/Blink

Tizen 3.0 release is scheduled for Q3 2014, so the first Tizen smartphones and tablets which are expected for Q1 2014 will probably ship with Tizen 2.2.1, or even possibly with an earlier version.

Android KitKat 4.4 has been optimized to run smoothly on device with just 512 MB, but the newly announced Tizen Lite beats that as it will be optimized for devices with just 256MB RAM competing with other low footprint operating systems such as Firefox OS.

Where Tizen will run on hardware with at least 512 MB RAM, WVGA (800×480) minimum resolution, and use at least 1GB flash, Tizen Lite will run on even lower end hardware with 256 MB RAM, HVGA (480×320) to QVGA (320 x 240) displays, and require at least 512 MB flash. Interestingly, the minimum specs corresponds to ZTE Open, one of the first Firefox OS phone.
