Tizen, the joint venture between Intel and Samsung is yet to bare fruit to a device, but Ars Technica has managed to get hands of two videos that show a device that’s running an unfinished version of Tizen 2.0 running what it calls Intel’s Obsidian UI, which is a skin for the OS.
The videos show flat and square icons, which are different from the circular icons we saw in the ‘Pure’ version of Tizen. Like Android, it also has three software keys in the bottom for calls, messages and contacts. There is also a tilt action for icons and contacts when notification is an app is received.
Ars Technica also says that Intel may be bringing this UI to Android as well. Additionally, it’s worth noting the device seen in the video is quite reminiscent to the Medfield reference design device that Intel had cooked up last year, which became the basis for the Lava Xolo X900.
