Samsung is already working on the Z2 smartphone, the successor to its Tizen OS-powered Z1 entry-level smartphone the company had launched in India last month. According to a report by Tizen Indonesia, the Z2 will boast several handy improvements over its predecessor.
Interestingly, the company has revised the Tizen SDK, which documents one crucial change. For instance, the Z2 smartphone will come with qHD display (compared to WVGA in Z1). However, that s all the SDK reveals. Samsung’s decision to not opt to use an HD or FHD display suggests that the Z2 will also be an affordable handset.
The report also reveals that Samsung has managed to sell only 100,000 units of Z1 smartphone in India, and about 20,000 units in Bangladesh. A report last month revealed company s plan to manufacture the Z1 handset in India.
For a recap, Galaxy Z1 features a 4-inch WVGA display. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor paired with 768MB of RAM and 4GB internal storage which is expandable up to 64GB via microSD card slot. Other features of the handset including a 3.1-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing camera. It packs a 1,500mAh battery. The dual-SIM capable handset supports 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0.
