Samsung Z: Samsung launches the first Tizen OS-based smartphone

Samsung Z: Samsung launches the first Tizen OS-based smartphone

Samsung started with the homemade operating system called Bada and then switched to Android. Since then, Samsung has never experimented with any other platform for mobile operating systems and there has never been a need to do it because it has long dominated the Android smartphone market worldwide, but it seems that to break the monotony in l 'user interface of their smartphones have moved to a new operating system for mobile platforms, Tizen.

We have seen this operating system being used on the Samsung Galaxy Gear watch and have now introduced it to their new Samsung Z smartphone for the first time. It has also been reported that Samsung is also working on making this platform popular by getting more and more applications for Tizen's Store.

The specifications of this device are really good as it arrives with a Quad Core processor that operates at the frequency of 2.3 GHz. The main camera of 8 MP, accompanied by a single LED Flash, in addition to this you also have a secondary camera for video calls. Also support for discrete internal memory, i.e. 16 GB and this support can be extended with the help of an external memory card slot up to 64 GB.

All common connectivity features are available on the device, but you will also see NFC and GLONASS working on the device. The battery power of the device is also good, or 2600 mAh, especially when it activates an energy saving mode that helps you to reduce the batteries.

Samsung will begin to solicit this device from Russia and this too from the third quarter of this year and then Samsung will slowly expand the market for this device. The reason for this shortcoming in announcing and launching this product is the time necessary to accelerate the development of a good part of the applications for the platform before it reaches the hands of the customers.


Although this new Samsung initiative can be appreciated but really difficult for a new operating system to compete against Android. Don't forget that the Windows Phone operating system has tried to do the same in the past few years, but they are still unable to conquer significant market share. The price of the device has not yet been announced, so stay tuned for more information about it.
