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.

    talagang hari ng segmentation ang samsung. yung mga samsung android devices hindi lahat may update sa latest android 6.
    yung lumang samsung tab 4 16GB ko, hanggang android 5.1.1 lang samantalang yung samsung tab 3 8GB ko, android 4.4 lang.

    at eto na naman: tizen OS….

      korek! eh kaya nga diba ang style ng Samsung Shotgun method, maglabas ng libo-libong models tignan nalang kung ano ang papatok! ;-) ang nakakaawa dito yung sutomers na gaya ng sabi mo naiiwan sa update ng software dahil ang dami nilang models na dapat asikasuhin.
