Samsung's success in producing and selling Android devices around the world is deserved thumbs up. Compared to other smartphone manufacturers, Samsung has a much larger user base. For hardware business, Samsung is the champion. But how about the software side? As great as Samsung's in terms of Android device sales, they inevitably have to stick to Google's rules, the company that developed Android, the operating system they embed in every Samsung Galaxy device.
To reduce its dependence on Android and Google, Samsung with Intel and Linux Foundation developed its own mobile operating system called Tizen.
The OS of Everything
In addition, Tizen is claimed as an energy-efficient operating system, much more efficient than the Android operating system. This advantage is achieved because Tizen is designed as optimal as possible in order to run on any device with a smooth, whether it has a high resource and limited.
Native and Web Applications
Support for Application Developers
Tizen strongly supports developers who develop applications using HTML5. Even official guides for developing applications using HTML5 on Tizen have been available for a long time. This is different from Android. Officially Google only supports Android application development using Java so to develop Android app using HTML5 we have to use third party developer device.
Developing applications for Tizen can be achieved using the Tizen SDK. Tizen SDK consists of a set of tools for developing native and web applications. The SDKs released on developer.tizen.org include IDEs, Emulators, code samples, and documentation. The Tizen SDK can be used in both Windows, Linux Ubuntu, and Mac OS X. The IDE embedded with the actual Tizen SDK is Eclipse that has been customized so as to make it easier for developers to develop applications for Tizen. If you do not want to use Tizen IDE, you can still develop Tizen applications as long as you stick with Tizen packaging rules.
The Tizen application we developed can be applied to four categories of devices called "profiles". The four categories are mobile, wearable, in-vehicle infotainment, and smart TV. The application of Tizen apps on mobile devices is not much different from other smartphone devices. Tizen features 3D window effects, location based service framework, sensor framework, advanced multimedia, and multi-tasking and multi-touch capabilities. Since Tizen's smartphone device will have a different screen span, Tizen has included the ability to adapt to different types of screen resolutions. The wearable profile is for smartwatch devices. It has the same features as that of a mobile profile. However, wearable profile features have been adapted for devices with relatively smaller display screens on mobile profiles. For Smart TV, Tizen has adopted open standards based on Linux to optimize home entertainment devices such as Blu-ray players and digital TV. Designed for internet-enabled TV that allows users to access multiple applications, services, and personal media, while watching TV. The In-Vehicle Infotainment or abbreviated profile with IVI is a special profile created to help bring navigation, entertainment and service capabilities Which is connected to the Internet network into vehicles such as cars, trucks, buses, and even aircraft.
