Golden Samsung Z caught in the wild

Golden Samsung Z caught in the wild
Officially unveiled in early June as the world’s first Tizen OS smartphone, the Samsung Z isn’t available to buy at the moment, despite the fact that it was supposed to be released on July 10. Samsung said that the handset’s launch was postponed because Tizen doesn’t provide a full portfolio of applications yet. As you probably know, without a wide range of apps, a smartphone platform may not seem too attractive to users.

According to Samsung, the Z should hit shelves in some markets this quarter anyway. This means that the company hopes to solve the app issue pretty soon.

Until the Samsung Z finally reaches stores, its golden version (which was announced at the same time with the black one) was caught in the wild at the Tizen Developer Summit in Russia - and you can check it out in the slideshow below.

It’s still not clear how much the Samsung Z will cost. However, it will definitely not be as expensive as the Galaxy S5 Android flagship, and that’s because the features of the Z (including a 4.8-inch 720p display and an older-generation Snapdragon processor) make it a mid-end smartphone.
