According to a new report, Samsung's upcoming Tizen smartphone, the Z3, will be able to sync with the Samsung Gear S2, the Tizen-based round smartwatch that is currently making waves in the smartwatch market.

Android stood at the core of Samsung's rise to dominance in the global smartphone market, and Google's mobile OS continues to power a vast Samsung Galaxy family of smartphones. Despite what seems like the perfect love story, however, Samsung is doing its best to separate its future from Android by slowly adopting Tizen, an open-source OS that Samsung is developing with help from other companies such as Intel, Huawei, Vodafone, and Sprint.

One segment where Samsung has aggressively pushed Tizen as an Android alternative are smartwatches. Out of the seven watches that Samsung has launched so far, only one of them - the Samsung Galaxy Gear - came with Android Wear. The rest of them, including the recently-unveiled Gear S2, run Tizen

      As the global economy reels, it’s no surprise smartphone demand is down. Spending $1,000 on a phone isn’t nearly as appealing with a potential recession looming. Earlier in the month, IDC projected that smartphone shipments would decline by 3.5% in 2022. Samsung seems to be feeling the effects of this slowdown as much as any phone maker, as a new report claims the company has millions of unsold phones in stock.

      The Elec reports (via SamMobile) that distributors have 50 million Samsung phones currently sitting in their inventory. The mid-range Galaxy A series is said to make up “a huge portion” of this unsold supply. Sources tell the site that Samsung wants to ship 270 million phones in 2022, but the 50 million unsold phones represent 18% of that sales goal.
      According to The Elec, unsold inventory usually represents about 10% of any company’s total shipments. The fact that Samsung’s is so much higher shows just how significantly the South Korean tech giant overestimated sales in the first half of the year.
      The report goes on to note that Samsung was producing around 20 million phones a month in January and February. That number dropped to 10 million in May, presumably in response to inventory growing while demand was dropping.
      We can’t verify this report, but it isn’t the first to spell trouble for Samsung this spring. Last month, South Korea’s Maeil Economic Daily reported that Samsung was slashing smartphone orders for 2022. A source said that Samsung was lowering its order volume from 310 million units to 280 million units — nearly 10% fewer than planned.
      Apple isn’t immune to low demand either

      In March, Nikkei Asia reported that Apple would make 20% fewer iPhone SE units in the next quarter than planned. Respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that production issues were not to blame, but rather demand was simply lower than expected.
      Samsung and Apple each have major phone launches planned for the second half of 2022. According to Front Page Tech host Jon Prosser, Samsung will announce the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 on August 10th. A month later, we expect Apple to host an event of its own to pull back the curtain on the highly-anticipated iPhone 14 line.
      Both companies are certainly hoping that the economy is in better shape later this summer. Otherwise, we might see unsold inventory continue to grow.
