Tizen is a Linux based OS the Samsung has seemingly adapted for their budget alternative of Android. With the lack of popularity and a large app store like Android, the Tizen OS devices failed to gain much of a popularity in developed markets.
Hence Samsung is now trying to target the developing markets with their upcoming Tizen OS, Samsung Z3. In fact the device was seen passing F.C.C certification in China.
The Korean electronics giant failed to taste much of a success with their Samsung Z1 hence they are betting big this time. Their marketing strategy is changed too. In place of trying to conquer developed markets, they are tipped to launch the Z3 in Nepal and Bangladesh among others.
The Tizen Build conference is round the corner in Shenzhen in a few days, hence its expected that Samsung will showcase their latest Tizen OS smartphone at the event along with the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch.
In terms of specifications the Samsung Z3 comes with 5 inch HD (1280x720) display along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC under the hood. The device will further feature a 1GB RAM, 8MP rear and 5MP front cameras. Some rumours though hint at a 5MP and a 2MP pair. The first rumours seem to be more credible though, considering Samsung is planning to up the ante with the Z3.
It will be interesting to see whether Samsung at all brings the Z3 to India. Just in case do, then the pricing of the device will go a long way to decide of the success of the device in the market.
