As of now, Samsung has not made any confirmations regarding the price for its latest Tizen-based smartphone, Samsung Z. However, it made its first appearance in the Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco.
Samsung had, in the past, revealed its intent to launch the World’s first Tizen device in 2014. So it is no rocket science to guess Samsung’s latest and most rumored-device Samsung Z will be the first smartphone running on Tizen.
Samsung’s executive predicts that Tizen devices could bag as much as 15% of Samsung’s mobile shipments per year. However, Android is likely to hold its ground in the main business concluded the executive.
While the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are Samsung devices running on Tizen operating system, Samsung will announce the official introduction of its Tizen-based SDK for Smart Television in the coming month.
Samsung is surely giving a boost to the Tizen operating system by incorporating it in its very own devices, however, the success of Tizen-based Samsung Z is under the radar. As of now, we wait in anticipation to see whether the new handset reaches the level of expectations from its fans or fails.
