We told you back in September that Samsung's first Tizen powered smartphone would be landing in November, but it now seems that the handset will arrive this month instead.

By Luke Jones on Tuesday November 11, 2014

The Samsung Gear S shifted 10,000 units during its first day on sale in South Korea, a decent amount for a smartwatch, although it is worth noting that the country is Samsung's home territory.

Samsung's smartwatch line up is getting plenty confusing. There are now six Galaxy Gear wearable products available and the company is rolling out the latest, the Gear S, during this fall.

We have seen plenty of false dawns for Samsung and Intel's Tizen platform.

Samsung's IFA event was dominated by the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge smartphones, but the company had other things to offer too. Chief among those was the Gear S, a smartwatch we had heard about before it was launched in Berlin today.

LG won't be the only Korean company launching a new smartwatch at IFA next week as Samsung will also be rolling out the Galaxy Gear S (not Solo as we reported yesterday).

As we said yesterday when the Gear S was a mere rumour, it will allow taking and making calls directly on the smartwatch.

Samsung kills the Tizen based Galaxy Z
By Luke Jones on Tuesday August 12, 2014

The Samsung Galaxy Z was a device that caused plenty of interest in the MobileBurn offices when it was unveiled a few months ago.
