Unlike most of Samsung’s devices, the upcoming “Samsung Z” will be running on an open-source platform that was created by Samsung, in collaboration with Intel, giving up on Google’s Android. Tizen will come with the 2.2.1 version and will have its own app store.
Samsung Z will be the first smartphone that will run on the Tizen OS and will come with a 4.8-inch 720p display and will be powered by a 2.3-GHz quad-core processor. It will have 2 GB of RAM and an internal storage of 16 GB, which can be expanded by up to 64 GB. It will sport a 8 MP primary camera and a 2.1 MP secondary camera, and on this device you’ll notice many of the Android smartphones’ features: Dual-Shot, Beauty Shot or Panorama.
Samsung didn’t say much about Z’s operating system the applications that come with the 2.2.1 Tizen OS, although there will be an app store for the future devices that will run on this operating system, but the company assures us that the phone will have multi tasking, 2D, 3D graphics support, quick webpage rendering, a fingerprint sensor etc. It will have the “Ultra Power Saving” mode in order to extend the battery life, plus you’ll customize your home screen panels as you’ll wish.
The Samsung Z will be released in Russia in the Q3 and then it will arrive in other countries that prefer cheap hardware. We don’t know how much will Z cost, but it will be cheaper than the other Android smartphones.
Samsung and Intel have been working on the Tizen OS for many years.
