Launch markets revealed for Samsung's Tizen-powered Z3 smartphone

Launch markets revealed for Samsung's Tizen-powered Z3 smartphone
Despite the staunch opposition, Samsung's Tizen is most certainly a Thing. While the company's long-term goal is to have almost all of its consumer electronics running the software, there's no question that decreasing reliance on Google and Android in mobile space poses a favorable incentive. The skeptics and naysayers may be correct in their assertions that the Tizen OS has no chance of competing with the likes of iOS and the aforementioned Android. But with the Z1 having performed better than expected, the Z3 will likely be unveiled later this month, and according to information gathered by SamMobile, a handful of launch markets have already been outlined. 

There's talk of at least one Tizen smartphone heading to the European market this year, and given the coverage and notable amount of anticipation for the Z3, there's reason to believe that it could be available outside of Asia. Hitherto, Tizen devices like the Z1 have largely been confined to Samsung's home continent, and the SamMobile report indicates that the Z3 will follow suit when it launches throughout India, Bangladesh and Nepal initially. 

Announcement is set to take place at the Tizen Developer Summit slated for late July, and attendees will apparently be given their very own Z3 unit. Speaking of which, the handset will boast a 5-inch, 720p Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus, and a 5-megapixel shooter on the front. Elsewhere, there'll be a 1.3 GHz quad-core Spreadtrum SC7730S chip, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable storage space. 

Most interestingly, perhaps, is the fact that the Z3 will run the all-new Tizen 3.0 operating system -- details of which have yet to be revealed. Should we learn of any further tidbits between now and the Tizen Developer Summit, we'll have them covered for your right here. 

In the meantime, let us know what you make of the Z3 and Samsung's general Tizen endeavors by dropping us a comment below.

That processor sucks. Spreadtrum chips are really scrapping at the bottom of the barrel. I don't mind Tizen, but what is up with the crappy CPUs.

You comment is stupid. Everything is made in Asian especially China and India. European and American brands that move their jobs to Asian are the betrayers, How come you don't single them out?

There was no lag on the z1, so with the he better CPU there going to be no lag again, it is a cheap phone, no need for the best hardware as it's not running a cm, you are up on that Samsung OS runs on the crap CPUs used in TVs are you not
