Samsung officially closes its Tizen app store


South Korean smartphone brand Samsung closed his Tizen app store. The store website is no longer available to all users, including existing users and new users. In June 2021, the company closed new listings on the store. It was however accessible for TizenOS users who could only install previously downloaded applications.
According to a report by Tizen Help, the Tizen application store is permanently closed after December 31. If someone visits the website, they receive an error code on the screen.
The Samsung Galaxy Z4 was the last device to run on TizenOS. It was launched in 2017. But Samsung has continued to ship its smartwatches with Tizen OS. Along with the Samsung Galaxy Watch Series 4, it has also made a change for smartwatches as the new device comes with Google’s Wear OS. It is likely that all future Galaxy watches will do the same.
The major problem that Android users have experienced with previous Samsung smartwatches is the lack of third-party app support. The issue has been resolved with Galaxy Watch 4 which runs on One UI Watch based on Wear OS 3. It allows users to access a wide range of apps through the Play Store.
Recently, the company introduced its highly anticipated Galaxy S21 FE smartphone. The handset is equipped with a 2X Dynamic AMOLED display and a 12MP ultra-wide camera with F2.2 and 123˚ field of view. It is paired with a 12MP wide camera with F1.8 and an 8MP telephoto lens with 30x space zoom and F2.4 aperture. For selfies, the phone has a 32MP camera on the front with an F2.2 aperture. The smartphone runs on One UI 4 based on the Android 12 operating system and houses a 4,500mAh battery with 25-watt wired charging support.
