Samsung Tizen OS-Based ‘Z’ Smartphone Delayed Once Again

It seems nothing is going Apple’s way when it comes to the next big iPhone production, and in the same manner it doesn’t working well for Samsung though, as the release of Samsung Z smartphone based on its homegrown Tizen OS, seems to have been delayed yet again. Why? After this break!

Introduced Samsung Z at the Tizen Developers Conference in San Fransisco last month and Russia to be the first market to get the phone in Q3 this year. As per the Wall Street Journal, the Tizen-based Samsung Z smartphone was scheduled to be launched in Mascow at an event for Tizen developers on Thursday, but the launch was cancelled unexpectedly.


The South Korean however didn’t gave any details on cancellation, rather said the Tizen-OS-based handset is still on track and soon launched in Russia.  According to WSJ, because of it didn’t get enough apps in the Tizen Store by the time of the launch, that’s why they have cancelled the event (speculation).

This is what Samsung said in a statement, “The smartphone will appear on the Russian market later, when we can offer our users a fullest portfolio of applications,” and the report also mentioned that despite of decline, Samsung held the developers event, though it was ‘sparsely populated’.

Dmitry Anosov, a Samsung executive in Russia at the event said, “The most obvious advantage [of developing for the Tizen phone] is that you’ll be at the top in a half empty store on a decent premium device.” Added this “Few prototypes of handsets were also showcased” to the report as well.
