The upcoming Tizen smartphone from Samsung has been codenamed "Redwood" and bears the GT-I8800 model name.

The design of the device looks quite similar to the company's own Galaxy smartphones. Samsung has obviously baked a few of its proprietary Android features into the Tizen Operating System (OS) such as S-Voice, Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) Direct and S-Beam.

The only thing we know about the Samsung I8800 Redwood is that it comes with a 720p display and runs the Tizen 2.1 OS.

The smartphone will be given away to some 500 developers, participating in the on-going Tizen Developer Conference for cross platform customizations.

So far we don't know whether that's actually a device that will be commercially available. It is possible that it only remains a developer's platform.
