While Samsung’s Tizen operating system is still far from being a success, the South Korean giant has used it pretty well. The company has launched various Gear wearables based on the platform and it also found some modest success with the Samsung Z1, the first Tizen OS smartphone. Reportedly, the company is gearing up to launch the Samsung Z3, the successor to the Z1. Where did the Z2 go? Well, we have no clue!
According to the latest reports, the Samsung Z3 smartphone has been certified by the FCC just yesterday. The device is rumored to be making an appearance at the Tizen Developer Summit scheduled for next week on September 17-18 in Shenzhen. The report adds that the device will be unveiled at the event along with the new Tizen OS 3.0 and the device should hit the market in October.
The Samsung Z3 is expected to feature a 5-inch HD (1280x720p) display, the Quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor with 1 GB or 1.5 GB RAM, 8 GB of internal storage with expansion and either 8 MP and 5 MP cameras or 5 MP and 2 MP cameras for the rear and the front respectively.
The Samsung Z3 should be aimed at the Indian sub-continent where the Samsung Z1 was moderately successful. So, we can expect the device to launch in India, Bangladesh and Nepal first and then roll out to other parts of the world. As always, we will keep you posted.
