The Samsung Galaxy S2 has proven to be the most popular smartphone in Samsung’s lineup. The Galaxy S3 is now the one of the most hotly anticipated smartphones aside from the iPhone 5. Due to the success of the Korean tech giant’s Android handsets, a rumour suggests that the company is pulling the plug on its Bada OS.

Samsung’s Bada operating system was launched in 2010. You can call the OS Samsung’s experiment. The Korean firm would continue to focus more on Android devices, while developing an OS that could potentially give Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS a run for its money. If Bada has proven to be successful, it would focus instead on Bada. Sadly, Bada was only popular in a few markets, but it failed to make a significant impact on the market like Android and iOS. Furthermore, developers were not flocking to the platform just like the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Due to the overwhelming success of both Android and iOS, Samsung is said to be giving Bada the boot, according to Mobile Review’s highly popular (or highly infamous) Editor-in-chief Eldar Murtazin, who has a reputation of being right most of the time.

Murtazin’s analysis of Bada suggests Samsung will start pulling the plug on the OS by the end of 2012, with the announcement of its death sometime in 2013. The Korean firm is yet to confirm or deny Murtazin’s report.
