Tizen spotted on a Samsung phone at the MWC

Tizen logoSamsung announced its new Tizen device – a smartwatch successor to the Android-powered Galaxy Gear. Was that it? Turns out it's not, not if you peek under the covers.

An ExtremeTech writer spotted a Tizen-running Samsung phone at what seems to be the Tizen App Challenge event. Note that the photo isn't particularly clear and there's no way to tell if it's a Galaxy phone running Tizen.

Nope, fat lot of nothing at the #Tizen event. The new smartwatches aren't even here. #mwc2014 pic.twitter.com/rNKeWSL9Yg

Tizen spotted on a Samsung phone at the MWC

Still, the OS is clearly capable of running on phone hardware (ignoring the question of mobile connectivity for a moment). Will we actually see a Tizen phone tomorrow when Samsung's event will be held?

We'll keep our eyes peeled, until then the Galaxy S5 is still at the top of the list.
