Samsung Z, the Tizen-powered smartphone announced
I am quite sure that by now, most of us are familiar with the fact that Samsung has worked on rolling out a slew of new smartphones that will target just about all different levels of their customers, ranging from the entry level to the mid-range and high end side of things. Samsung has concentrated primarily on the Android operating system platform, although they have had flirted with Windows Phone before without much success, not to mention toying around with their bada OS platform. Having said that, in collaboration with Intel, Samsung has come up with the Samsung Z that will be powered by the Tizen operating system.
The Samsung Z happens to be the industry’s first Tizen-powered smartphone to boot, where it is said to offer a unique user experience with advanced web performance and usability. This commercially available smartphone that runs on the Tizen platform will be paraded at the Tizen Developer Conference which will be held in San Francisco from June 3rd onward. Constructed on top of unparalleled quality and the cutting-edge technology of Samsung’s latest premium smartphone, the Samsung Z will come with a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display alongside a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, making it the ideal choice for those who want something different without weighing them down in the pockets.
The Tizen platform is said to offer fast and optimal performance alongside improved memory management, where there is a faster startup time alongside immediate multi-tasking capabilities. Not only that, there will be 2D and 3D graphic support, delivering smoother scrolling and an improved rendering performance for web browsing. An integrated fingerprint sensor, too, gives users with the ability to enjoy safe and secure privacy protection. In addition, an Ultra Power Saving Mode allows the handset to remain operational even at minimal battery levels in the event of emergencies. No idea on pricing, but it will launch in Russia and selected markets soon.
