Looks like Samsung has still not given up on Tizen. According to TizenExperts, the company is working on two Tizen-based smartphones. One is said to be the successor of Tizen Z1, and the other is unnamed but will see a global launch. This leak comes in on the same day when the Z1 sees a price cut in India.
The Z2 is said to release sometime soon, maybe in the first half of 2015, while there is no launch timeline on the other smartphone. The report also states that the Z2 will have 540×960 pixels PLS TFT-LCD display, and will be powered by a 32-bit quad-core processor paired with 1GB RAM. It will pack a 2,000mAh battery, will support LTE and run on new Tizen 3.0 UI.
The unnamed Tizen smartphone is reportedly said to have a 4.8-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) Super AMOLED display. It will pack a 2,600mAh battery, 8-megapixel camera and an unlocked Tizen Store. This smartphone will find a wider audience and will be launched in Korea, USA, Russia, China, India, France, Malasia, South Asia and EU.
The Z1 was launched in India in January, and the company announced a price slash on the smartphone. It was launched for a price tag of Rs 5,700 but has been reduced to Rs 4,990 on the Samsung India e-store website.
