Earlier this year, the company unveiled the Samsung Z, an LTE-enabled Tizen smartphone. The phone came with 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED screen and was powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core processor.
Samsung’s first Tizen smartphone in India was expected to launch around Diwali, but the company has clearly missed the target. It would be interesting to see if Samsung is able to price the smartphone close to the Rs 5,000 mark, which will put it in Android One smartphones’ territory.
For those who are unfamilar, Tizen operating system is developed by Samsung. The mobile operating system is also powering Samsung’s smartwatches. With Tizen, the Korean technology company has been trying to reduce its reliance on Google’s operating system, however, the operating system is still struggling to make any dent in the jam-packed smartphone market.
