The Linux Foundation's new operating system, Tizen, could be on Samung phones by the end of the year according to fresh reports.

Tizen is billed as a rival to Google's Android, a unique situation given Samsung's most successful phones are also Android's most successful phones, and Google relies heavily on Samsung to drive sales of Android handsets.

Samsung rumour website Sammobile is reporting that Samsung is planning to launch the new operating system at the company's developer conference, which takes place from 27 to 29 October at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco.

Further speculation is mounting that the first Tizen phone, known for now only by its model number SM-Z9005, might also be launched in October for a release in November or December, at least according to Sammobile.

Sammobile's reported source is Tizen Indonesia, which also said the new operating system will be the focus of the conference.

Samsung will reportedly conduct a number of sessions to help developers better understand its new platform and understand the company’s vision for it. 

While the company isn’t expected to abruptly switch all of its mobile devices from Android to Tizen, the conference may be an ideal stepping stone to widespread uptake, if all goes well.

More information on Tizen, which will also run on Smart TVs and in-vehicle entertainment devices, can be found at the official page here.
