Samsung Z3 reportedly confirmed as the next Tizen OS smartphone

Earlier this week, we heard that Samsung would release "several" Tizen smartphones this year - probably because the Z1, which is the company's first commercially available handset to run Tizen OS (pictured above), is selling relatively well in the few markets where it's available.

While Samsung didn't provide details regarding its upcoming Tizen handsets, SamMobile reports that the next smartphone to be based on the new OS will be called Samsung Z3. It's not the first time we're hearing about this device, but now we know its model number (SM-Z300H), and SamMobile says its insiders can "confirm" that this is indeed the next Tizen smartphone to hit the market.

The features of the Z3 are yet to be confirmed. However, rumor has it that the smartphone will offer a 5-inch display, Tizen 3.0, a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable storage space. A 5 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, and a 2000 mAh battery might also be included.

It's not clear exactly when the Samsung Z3 will be released, but we assume we're going to hear more about this pretty soon.

I don't know why Samsung is still trying. The market is crowded enough. No one is going to switch to ANOTHER ecosystem.

Considering that ecosystem is being run on everyday household items like your television, refrigerator, washer/dryer, etc. I would say they may have good reason to switch. It also runs all of your Android applications.

It's a phone made in India for Indians, clearly there's a market if they're gonna make the 3rd version.

if Samsung use Android, they need to pay license to Google, Microsoft, Apple and some others, so they create a new OS , who knows it would make them less dependence on Android

In my life, I will always use two phones. The galaxy note series is first in the line. I want a different OS for my second phone. Currently I am using the note 4 and will be upgrading to note 5 and a certain Chinese brand called tecno. I am thinking to get the Lumia 940 if it comes with dual sim option. Therefore, if tizen can make itself into flagships, I may buy one.

Not hating but am I the only one who noticed that this phone looks really similar to the Iphone 4?

This looks like the original Galaxy S, which looks like the Samsung F700.

I'll be interested in looking into Tizen if they release a high-end flagship phone and bring it to the US market.

i dont think they would release a high end tizen phone, this phone is for low end market , its why samsung create them to run any app smoothly even with very low spec.

That makes sense. It's too bad I'm so glued into only flagships.. I'm quite curious about all the new mobile OS.
