Tizen 3.0 on top that reveal the lockscreen, which looks quite similar
to Samsung's Touch UI. The images leaked reveal a vanilla UI which looks
a bit familiar to Windows Phone UI. The notifications appear on the
lockscreen along with some app controls which can be seen in the leaked

interface which looks very similar to that of Android and the Music
player which looks quiet colourful.
