The Wall Street Journal claims that the event will be timed to coincide with a Tizen developers’ conference in San Francisco, due to be held in early June.
The Korean manufacturer confirmed last month that it was working on two Tizen smartphones and the company is believed to be close to launching a Tizen handset in India, where work is also underway on creating a smart TV running the platform.
Some have been delayed, and Japanese manufacturer NTT DoCoMo abandoned a planned launch, weakening expectations for the platform, but Samsung hopes it can increase the amount of revenue it can generate from services on its devices.
The company is believed to be deliberately targeting emerging markets or countries in which it has a strong existing presence and claims that if Tizen accounts for 15 percent of its future smartphone shipments it will have been a success.
Android remains crucial to Samsung’s prospects however, with the Samsung Galaxy S5 being released in the UK last month and the company has plans to launch an Android-powered smartwatch in the near future.
