Samsung Z2 evidence sure suggests Samsung Tizen phones aren't done yet10
Android may power Samsung's most popular smartphones, but is the company's reliance on the Google-helmed OS a liability? For years now Samsung's been looking into its options for smartphones that exist outside of Google's influence, and that's led to the release of Tizen-powered models like the Samsung Z1 and Z3. Now a new leak attempts to shed some light on another upcoming Tizen handset, the four-inch Samsung Z2.
The import logs don't tell us a ton about the smartphone's hardware, but they do attempt to confirm a four-inch screen size. That immediately invites comparisons to the similarly four-inch Samsung Z1, as opposed to the five-inch Samsung Z3.
Does that mean that the this presumptive Samsung Z2 would also see the rest of its hardware fall more in line with the lower-end Z1 than the slightly better-equipped Z3? Import log pricing data has swung from as low as $50 per handset to as high as $375, making it tricky to get a bead on the phone's capabilities. Knowing Samsung and four-inch phones, though, we're guessing this one will likely be on the lower-performing end of the spectrum.
In addition to this model SM-Z200, so far this year we've also heard about possible plans for the Tizen-based SM-Z150 (a rumored Z1 follow-up) and SM-Z510 (whose numbering could suggest it would be either the largest or most premium Tizen phone yet).
