Tizen-powered Samsung Z2 to officially launch on August 23
As an update to the budget-friendly Z1 that was announced early last year, Samsung is set to launch its successor — the Z2. Just like the previous model, it would run on Tizen OS along with entry level specs.
The confirmation came from a media invite by Samsung India and although they didn’t really confirm what device they will launch, Phonearena is certain that it’s “definitely a Tizen event,” where they will show off the new Z2.
As for the specs, there have been leaks that surfaced before which suggest an affordable smartphone with a 4-inch AMOLED display with 800 x 480 resolution, quad-core processor at 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, 5MP rear camera, VGA front camera, and LTE connectivity.
A leaked video also shows more of its features:
Since the previous Z1 was priced under $100, do expect that the upcoming handset will have a similar asking price once it makes its official introduction.
