Samsung might launch several Tizen devices in Europe, will the rumored Z3 be among them?
Tizen, Samsung's home-baked mobile platform, is currently available on a single commercially-available device, the Samsung Z1, but this is reportedly a subject to change. Some recent have it that Samsung is poised to greatly extend the availability of its Tizen-powered devices.

We've already heard that Sammy indeed intends to unleash a few Tizen-powered smartphones by 2015's end, and according to some new rumors coming straight from SamMobile, it looks like these will not be exclusively available in Asia and Russia. It's said that Samsung is currently probing the European market and might launch a few Tizen troopers on the Old Continent in 2016, too. 

One of these could very well be the rumored Samsung Z3, the alleged specs of which already appeared. The device is certainly better equipped than the entry-level Z1, which is reportedly exceeding Samsung's expectations and has been selling like hot cakes in the several Asian countries it is exclusively available in.

Back on the Z3, it is believed that it will run Tizen 2.4 out of the box (but will be upgradeable to Tizen 3.0) and will feature a 5", 720p Super AMOLED display, a quad-core, 1.3GHz Spreadtrum SC7730S chipset, a gigabyte and half of RAM, 8GB of on-board storage, 8MP rear/5MP selfie camera, and a 2,600mAh battery at the back.

Of course, we are sure that if Samsung is serious about bringing Tizen to Europe, it has other, more powerful devices to woo the public with.

Considered Samsung can't compete in Asia with low cost high spec phone from xiaomi Huawei and Lenovo, it's an opportunity for Samsung to offer tizen in Europe. As European tired of Google's monopoly as well

Xiaomi, Lenovo and other Chinese phones are just overrated by some people who are inclining toward cheap value phones. But even so, they just can't tell a lie that although those low price phones are equipped with high spec, they can't be in the same league with the Galaxy series. Every key points are messed up: camera quality, screen tech, battery performance and update support are mediocre and lag behind Samsung in any condition. Apparently, local people in China and only a very small portion of Asian countries give them some chances.

Do I really need an Android-less TouchWiz?

I rather just buy a WP or Blackberry phone. These two phones still give better value than Tizen. Forget it! Completely a waste of time and money.

Even the newly-borne Tizen is more functional than iOS 8. And the spec of this Tizen Z3 is higher than iPhone 6. In conclusion, entry-level Samsung phones can beat flagship iPhone. Yes, it just turns out this way.

To say something like this isn't true at all. iPhone isn't that bad. I am a Samsung fan, and I find it is too biased

8GB storage only, who would want that. Still good to see that Samsung is making progress with Tizen.
