  1. Three weeks ago, the company released in India the Samsung Z1, its first smartphone powered by Tizen, a homegrown alternative to Google Inc.’s Android operating system. This week, Samsung is pushing the Samsung Z1 into Bangladesh, a neighbor of India with more than 150 million people and a similarly low rate of smartphone penetration. After several missteps and rethinks, Samsung’s strategy for its Tizen smartphones is taking a clear shape: the company is aiming the fledgling platform squarely at first-time smartphone users, many of whom may not even have a bank account. The Samsung Z1 is selling in India for about $90. To that end, Samsung has been touting the “lightweight” nature of the Tizen operating system, meaning that it requires relatively little computing power and can handle most tasks without requiring pricey high-end specifications. That same lightweight approach has also allowed Samsung to use Tizen as the platform for many of the devices it is hoping will populate its “connected home,” from televisions to smart watches and home appliances. Despite concerns that Samsung’s new smartphone would face stiff competition in India, where several local handset makers are touting low-end smartphones — some of them in partnership with Google — Samsung says that its Tizen smartphones have received “positive responses” there. Positive enough, it seems, to at least push Tizen into a second country. Source: http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2015/02/06/samsung-extends-tizen-smartphone-to-bangladesh/
  2. Samsung to make the Tizen Z1 in India, but can the phone compete with rivals? The Samsung Tizen-OS phone, the Z1, may seem like just another phone launch amongst dozens that take place every month in India, the hottest smartphone market in the world, where a little under 70 percent of the population still operate "dumb" feature phones. But it's not. It has a multitude of narratives wrapped into it, the most important being Samsung's future in the country. The latest news that extends this conversation is the company's announcement yesterday that the Z1 will soon be manufactured in India.

  3. Samsung's first Tizen phone the Z1 is finally here and being sold in India for roughly $92. Samsung Electronics started selling its first Tizen smartphone in India on Wednesday, priced at 5,700 Indian rupees ($92). The Z1 runs the open-source Tizen operating system backed by Samsung and other vendors including Intel, and which already powers some of the South Korean company’s wearables and TVs. Samsung announced a different Tizen smartphone, the Z, in June, ahead of the Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco. It said then that it would launch it first in Russia, in the third quarter of 2014, but that phone never appeared. According to some accounts, the release of a Tizen phone in India was also delayed. The Z1 has relatively low-end specs compared to the planned Z, which was to have a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display and a 2.3 GHz quad-core application processor, indicating that Samsung has shifted its focus with Tizen to the low end of the market, a booming segment in India and other emerging markets. In India, the Z1 will have to compete with Android phones with similar hardware capabilities and similar prices, said Vishal Tripathi, principal research analyst at Gartner. Tizen phones may take time to take off because people are not familiar with the operating system, he added. The Z1 runs Tizen 2.3 and has a 4-inch, 480x800 pixel screen and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. It has 768MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, expandable by up to 64GB with a microSD card. Samsung claims the 1500mAh battery will play video for 7 hours or provide 8 hours of talk time. Available in white, black and wine red, the smartphone has a 3.1 megapixel rear camera and a VGA front camera with face detection software. A key focus of the device seems to be entertainment. Samsung has bundled the phone with three months’ free access to movies and songs from Indian digital entertainment websites. The company is also providing users free access to premium content on its own Club Samsung digital entertainment storefront, and has tied with local mobile service providers Reliance Communications and Aircel to provide 500MB of free 3G data services per month for six months.
