Samsung originally plans to launch the first Tizen phone by the 3rd quarter of 2014 in Russia, but the company postponed it in order to enhance and optimize Tizen's app ecosystem. However, they still used the said platform for their three wearables: The Gear S, Gear 2 and Gear Neo. The alleged handset is set to debut in India and will be offered around $100.
