Samsung Z2 And Global Tizen Smartphone Being Developed (Rumor)


Recommended Posts

When it comes to rumors of smartphones, there are plenty to go around especially when you take into consideration the number of players that are in the market. The latest round of rumors involve Samsung of South Korea, where they are tipped to be working on a Tizen-based Z2, as well as – get this, a global Tizen smartphone.


Samsung must have been smitten by the kind of success that they met with the Samsung Z1 in India and Bangladesh, two countries with huge populations, and it seems that this has spurred the company to deliver new Tizen-based smartphones. One of those is said to be the Samsung Z2, which will take over the aforementioned device, while the other is touted to be a global Tizen smartphone that will sport a higher level of hardware specifications.


Whispers claim that the Samsung Z2 will feature some notable improvements over its predecessor, including a 32-bit quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, a TFT-LCD display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, and a 2,000mAh battery. Expect to see new Tizen 3.0 UI accompany it, but other than that, additional details are scant.


The other global Tizen handset is tipped to make its way to the US, China, South Korea, Russia, India, Malaysia, South Asia, and selected countries in Europe, where it will sport mid-range hardware including a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, 2GB RAM, an 8MP shooter at the back and a 2,600 mAh battery.

      There is no native Strava mobile app for Tizen OS smartphones, so what app could be used for tracking trail run and cycling activities on a Samsung Z4? Or is there a "non-native" route to Strava itself?
      Thank you, Maljaros

      It's tempting to think of Tizen as an also-ran in the smartphone world next to powerhouses like Android and iOS, but that's not entirely true when Samsung has sold 1 million Z1 phones in India since January. In fact, there are now signs that the Korean firm is doubling down on its partly in-house platform: Reuters sources hear that Samsung is planning to release "several" more Tizen phones later this year at a range of prices. While there aren't more details yet, the move suggests that Samsung is confident that it can expand Tizen's audience relatively quickly.
      There's certainly a lot of pressure to do that. Samsung has been on less-than-friendly terms with Google because of its sometimes aggressive attempts to build an ecosystem on top of Android. The more Tizen phones Samsung sells, the more it reduces its dependence on someone else's platform for success -- it can promote its own services and stand out in a market where almost everyone else is relying on Google software. You probably won't be buying a flagship-class Tizen phone any time soon, but it's evident that Samsung is determined to avoid Bada's slow fade into obscurity.
