Samsung Z2 is the First Tizen Powered 4G Phone

Samsung announced its latest Z2 smartphone at an event in New Delhi. Yesterday’s event featured Samsung Z2 smartphone, which is a tad higher spec’d than its older sibling Z1 and a bit lower on specs when compared with the Z3.

Samsung Z2 is the First 4G-powered Tizen Phone

The phone is primarily targeted at people who are moving away from feature phones and stepping into the smartphone realm. The Z2 is also the third Tizen OS powered phone Samsung has released and is the only Tizen phone which offers 4G LTE connectivity. This is the cheapest 4G offering by a major smartphone company so far.

Design

The Z2 follows typical Samsung design language with a home button in the middle with back and recent apps button on the left and right. The back also features the camera in the middle, and has another design similarity in common with Samsung phones with the flash on the left and the speakers on the right. Overall the device seems to be thick in size, something you don’t see much in Smartphones nowadays. The 3.5mm headphone jack is at the top, with a microUSB slot at the bottom of the phone.

  • iOS & Android not going to give any space to 3rd Operating System to gain the popularity. Even tech giant Microsoft struggling with their Windows phone OS. And we all know what happened with BlackBerry & FireFox OS.

  • Microsoft tries to earn without giving any thing for free to its customers. Look at Google, they give great services for free even android os is free and opensource. Microsoft tries to take everything without giving anything and this approach is killing it.

  • I trusted samsung back when they release Wave lineup with Bada OS (now named Tizen). But the devices not getting as much attention samsung decided to ditch the OS immediately after 1 year in 2011. Leaving the users hopeless. So I advise not to jump quickly in the Tizen ship. Observe and give it time no matter how attractive the device is compare to price

  • Samsung Z2 also give 3 months unlimited Jio 4G net, VO-LTE calls, sms, LIVE TV with HD channels without any FUP limit for 3months in INDIA.
    but still i don’t think anyone buy this Tizen OS based phone.
    we already have cheapest Android based 4G LYF phones starting price Rs2999 INR with 2 years warrenty.
