Samsung (SSNLF.PK) confirms it will begin selling smartphones based on its Tizen OS this year. The phones will likely feature Intel (INTC) processors, given the chip giant's role in co-developing Tizen. Samsung is undoubtedly trying to lower its dependence on Android, but whether it succeeds depends on the willingness of consumers to embrace an OS that will initially have much less developer support. A Japanese paper previously reported NTT DoCoMo will sell Samsung's Tizen phones.
